Dangers

 Additional Information

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.

MAceda Perfect Waves - I've discover this perfect wave, because i was tired of surfing waves without power in Summer. When i was talking with one of my surfers friends, he sade to me that had gone to Maceda surfing powerful waves.we've a lot of local to surf, but there is a secret.One day me, my brother and one friend, we've surf that perfects waves with 1m/1,5m (summer 2003-jul) , opening good barrels, and at first we were 6 in Water. Than the 3 guys gone way and We've surf that perfect waves alone.

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).
