Backdoor is located in the same bay has reef and pedra branca, has you see the Cesar Restaurant when driving from ericeira to the north, just turn left you will then easly see the bay, if the wave is not working it´s very difficult to understand where is the spot.

Top spot - Surfed this place back in Autumn 2003, was absolutely sick. 6/8ft perfect hollow righthanders with only 4 other guys out for about 3 hours. Was probably the best waves I have had in 4 trips to Portugal. Seems to be best around mid-tide as was stupid shallow at low tide and backwashy at high-tide, inbetween it was magic.
