Fun learners and intermediate beach, sandy bottom. Gets full of surf classes but you can avoid them in winter and also after 5pm
Nice atmosphere. The line up feels more like a bar than a surf spot in summer - crowded in summer, fewer people in winter. It is just a fun beach break with everyone learning and improving. The portuguese are in the minority in this bay in summer!

don't book in advance.. - .. we booked part of a house from one of the surf schools and they really screwed us on the price compared to what others getting the same package only paying on the spot was paying. You can always find a nice little peak in praia do baleal for youself, and its really good for learning. Keep your eyes open for spots and waves to your liking along the bay, and go in the high tide. If you wanna buy gear, go to 58 surf shop. Really helpful and definitely the best around.
