From Lisbon get on the A2 highway top the south, then +-15km ahead turn right in the exit indicating Sesimbra, then follow EN378 road until you reach a OTAN/NATO base, where you turn right (you will see an indication of Lagoa de Albufeira). Then you follow that road until Alfarim, where you reach an intersection, and continue ahead past that; then you reach another intersection in Aldeia do Meco, and find the indication to praia do meco

Meco produces a nice Wedge, closed to the Sand, the wave is very powerfull, and the rips are tricky, but when it fully develops, believe me it looks like Praia do Norte at Nazaré!

Surf naked - This is a nudism beach. You can surf naked and nobody bothers you. Is there anything better...

- If you want a consistent wave go to Caparica, were you can find also crowd, polution, traffic, nasty locals... If your looking for soul surfing go to Meco! It may not be perfect, I admit, but there you can find peace and solitude.
