Super surfing in spring and autumn - this place is very special. Waves are smaller in summer but in the off season it's great. The water is very clean but cool. You need a good suit. Lots of good surfspots can be reached by car in minutes. The whole coast looks and feels a lot like California. Food is rich, wine is excellent. Try www.ubit.ch/praia for a nice stay. Friendly people and just 5 minutes to the beach.

Great Spot - Not the most powerful wave on that coast but definately lots of fun! Reminds me of some of the waves in Del Mar, California.
