 Additional Information

When then swell reaches 1.5m, the point break left in the harbour starts working; respect the locals you will have no problems, but when the aformentioned harbour left starts working it can get really stressfull in the water.
It's completly flat during the summer, and only works with the not so common southerly swells, that appear mainly with stormy conditions.

Atmosphere

It can be a cool atmosphere, if you surf in weekdays, during the morning, when you can enjoy nice waves in a very beautifull town.

General

Nice spot, the beachbreak is average quality (can get really bad or really good...), but the harbour left pointbreak is a really good wave; in the 2000/2001 winter we got classic 3m waves there!

sesimbra - the beachs that i'ver surfed, Sesimbra is in the top, that wave makes me prefer the winter than the summer! locals no problem they are friendly, respect them like someone else...only one thing i don't like...don't works the all year!! but in other way we are looking forward the summer goes away!good waves

wrong description - Hey wannasurf, you changed Sesimbra's description, now it's incorrect. The wave breaks at the worst case at least 50 days a year, and as much as 100 in a good winter. It's definetely not 1 star, 2 minimum, but realisticaly it's a regional classic (3 star). So put this as it should.

not bad - Good when south stormy swells hit the coast... maybe it's the only plave where u can surf at all. Water is very polluted, please keep your mouth shut :-))
