You can get world class rides here - You can get a world class ride here. Spot is consistent and breaks left and right. It gets really crowded on weekends and even on week days, so try to get on the beach really early or later in the day. You can get the most amazing sunset here while surfing. Locals are OK, just try to say hello when you lineup and keep smiling. Best waves are in the beaches inside the peers. When it goes above 2 meters, there's much less people in the water. Avoid the high tide.

Good winter surf - From November to April this is simply a great spot for surfing, with a big variety of waves. It does however have the worst localism in Portugal with lots of trouble making locals.
