Ponta da Atalaia - Spot X my ass. Ponta da Atalaia is the name. It´s a small cape, the last cliff you see if you look to the left side in Monte Clérigo or Amoreira. At low tide, it´s possible to walk there from Monte Clérigo. Or you can drive from Monte Clérigo to Vale da Telha, take the right at the first roundabout then right again at the second (horse riding school ruins). At the end of the dirt road stands some Moorish ruins, park there, walk to the cliffs, see the spot, and go back home.Don´t expect much. These pictures where taken in February. Sure it´s big, as big as it was in several other spots along the SW coast that very same Winter day.The access is tricky, you have to go down the cliffs. The waves the pictures show break a hand-full of times every year. Good luck, have fun.
