There´s a parking lot just in front of the beach. No trouble att all, trying to find it.It´s a surveilled beach.Moledo is really good from October to April. Really crowded during summer, specially if there´s some sunny weather. Locals are very cool guys, so enjoy their hospitality, and correspond with respect. There are enough waves for everyone.
The atmosphere is really good and healthy. Everyone is cool. Lots of bodyboarders too. Good people. RESPECT everyone, and you will be respected.

Localism - I have surfed all over this planet but I've never seen localism like they got at Moledo. I give them nothing but love and respect but they are true scumbags.

what have changed - Praia de moledo was a very nice place to surf, good waves, friendly locals and few people. But now despite the waves still being good, the locals are not so friendly now. I heard stories of people being kicked off the water, cars being ruinned,robbed...They told me it that some weren´t able to surf because noone was respecting the locals any more, foreigns would come to beach and leave garbage everywhere, being rude to locals.As for the robberies they say even then are robbed, because there are a few junkies that sometimes goes to the beach and take things.So please respect the locals so you be able to surf this beatiful beach
