the wave it´s the biggest in the south of algarve when the swell came from southeast,in the summer u could have waves it´s perfectly normal,in the winter it´s too big too surf in there.it´s a bodyboarding wave(u could surf also)it´s a semi-secretspot.the park it´s in the front of the beach.u could rent a rural house in there the prices are quite cheap,this is a wave 7kms away from the town,a perfect paradise.
beautifful view perfect in the summer,when the sweel its too small in the other spots around this sptos its breaking with more 2feet normaly from southeast swell.
the wave gives you a hollow zone in the biggening and it´s very cool(in the summer you could surf with shorts perfectly normal).

- This piece of the algarve coast sucks.. South east swells, it's better to go further east, and for the west and north-west swells, better to go further west!
