This beach is good in the summer when the sea is small. When all beachs are flat check this beach and and you might be lucky. I advise to go with friends because the beach is in the middle of nowhere.
It's a good spot that works with little swell is hard to find and it's dangerous to go alone because there some robbery problems that i have experienced there.

Boas recordações - Eu e os meus amigos começamos a ir para a maceda em 1997, foi uma epoca muito especial.O dia começava às 8:00 da manhã com a ida para a praia à procura de ondas. Muitas vezes surfavamos sozinhos durante semanas em algum banco de areia que era descuberto por nós. ALTO FEELING!!!!! VIVA A GANG (Ferrety, Xoras, Xico, Z´D, Lagos, Mac, Miguel).
