Nesta praia pode encontrar vários picos como o pico do molhe, o molhe novo, o pico do meio da praia...
Nesta praia, se o vento tiver sudeste não surfe no pico do molhe, prefira o pico do meio da praia ou o do molhe novo, porque junto do pico do molhe não há ondas quando o vento está sudeste.
venham a portimão e disfrutem destas ondas maravilhosas.

- Solo session on glassy peak.  Quite gutless wave, but again no crowd issue to contend with.  Good to get out in lineup and enjoy the scenery and warm water before returning to Scotland.
