During the summer months if there is a good swell, get there early, as the car park fills up pretty quick and you may find yourself parking way up on the road.

Atmosphere

The quality of the water is very clear and nice to surf, one problem however is the water temprature..it´s freezing all year round. I just got back from surfing it in mid August and you definatley need a 3/2 steamer summer, winter i´d say all the gear cap, booties, gloves etc otherwise you will freeze before you take your first wave. This beachie doesn´t harbour as many boogie boarders as other local beaches and i hear there are presently 2 good banks there, an inside bank and an outer one for bigger days. There is a good cafe/bar on the beach also which is quite nice for a beer after ... SUPER BOK !!!! A couple of bikinis on the beach to boost the views, and if you are game, a nude hangout spot further down the beach.

My first trip together with Andre to the Algarve. Lots of wind, rain and swell, but also some nice days with clean waves and some sunshine. Temperatures were mild, (about 18° inside and outside the water.

rocks - the problem vith this spot is that at first sight it seems a beachbreak, but actually the bottom is full of sharp rocks and it´´´s very shallor! I cut my 2 feet and my back surfing here! I prefer the south coast of Algarve where it´s always glassy and there arn´t so many rocks!
good waves

There are no camping facilities on this beach, and the only supplies you can get are from the beach bar, which serves decent food but not at the most competitive prices..And you need a car to get to these places

Camping Eating in Cordoama? - is there a camping spot there on the surf spot, or can you camp for free? can you eat and buy any supplies right there incase you dont have a car? thanks for replying some one. aloha
