Atmosphere

Some good surf but it's too crowded, carcavelos can also be a very dangerous place to surf. Beacause of it's popularity and it's moderately "safe" waves it has attracted every teenager wanting to become a bodyboarder in the surrounding area, I've been ramed, cutt-off, run over more times here than I'd even like to remember..

- " Peixe Fudido " Carcavelos has many of these animals, when he bites is a trouble for the people.

By Local , 08-02-2008

True - "Peixe Fudido" is a really dangerous fish because it bites you suddenly before you even notice. There have been many cases of surfers who have left the water without arms or legs. Another hazard in this beach is the highly contaminated waters. Even if you don't swallow the water, you can contract several skin diseases, hepatitis and viruses.

sucks - Carcavelos is fine for boduboarders and kids! A wave that closes up 90% of the time! The longest wave you can surf takes up to 2 seconds!! then closes!! YEAH!! its fantastic
