Great wave, probably the best wave in the Estoril Coast. Be ready to padle and be careful with two set's of rocks, check out the beach at low tide to get an ideia of where they are located. with the falling tide the waves break farther and farther so get ready to paddle, but it is well worth it!!

- This is no doubght the best wave in estoril,this wave holds always double size of other waves in estoril, when the waves are small this wave is the best choice ,although shorter than bico ,is is more consistent and powerfull. the best tide is certainly mid tide,low tide is also good but the wave gets shorter.
When the sweell gets big and its above 1 meter bafureira gets a lot closeout and dangerous but bico in other side is perfect ,with 1 meter above bico has long and awsome rights.
Bico and Bafureira are the best waves.

Great Baforeira Wave - Probably the best wave in the Estoril coast. A couple of things thou. Be prepared to padle as the tide goes down the point break get's farther and farther. Be careful with the rocks there are two set's that you need to know where they are, so make sure to check out the beach during low tide to memorize the spots. Finally have fun, in mid tide you can surf lefts and rights with no problem. Locals are great, I have surfed this beach for years, just respect everybody. Hang Loose and have fun

Much better than pictures can show... - It's a very cool wave. Easy to surf because its not very hallow even in bigger days. Right wave for surfer who like to feel power without compromising their health…
