This spot has lots of tubular sections and is very fast. It's easy to get there: From Cascais just go direction Lisbon on a road called marginal(considered one of the most dangerous roads in europe) and after Estoril you will see a road sign to your right saying Praia da Poça.
Pretty nice atmosphere. There is a restaurant and a bar right on the beach.
Localism could be a problem, so treat locals with respect. DONT drop in their waves. When Poça gets good you can see lots of Portuguese pro's such as Filipe Ochoa, pro bodyboarder.

Totally Rocks - Yo. I'm a local of Poça. Don't drop me in or I will kick your ass. Eheh.Poça is one great wave, really tubular, the left is awsome, like Mini Teahupoo =) with a good wind and nice swell you will get the most of it. The right is really fast and you have a nice lip to fly.It's rocky and sharpen, be careful!So, one of the best waves in Linha do Estoril. But don't go there, it's too small for everybody.Peace.
