Being born there is an advantage - Okay here is the deal with surfing in Culatra,, in the summer you can get the feary from the city of olhao to culatra, or Farol which is the other tip of the island,,Culatra is less busy in the summer and you will have no problems surfing,, the locals are amazing people, check out Ruis bar and tell them The canadians sent you. Both my brother and i where born there and live in canada now. Anyway enjoy the rush when the winds are from the south west,, swells hit about 4 to 5 meters,, later dudes

Where is it - You' ve got to go to Olhão and get the boat to the culatra island, its the first stop, the other one is farol. Culatra is a very dirty fisherman village, you' ve to cross the village then the dunes and there' s the great beach, with no people and very clean waters.
