More good waves are to be found at Praia do Italcabe, in Conceição, which is a fast beachbreak and is the centre of the island’s beach bar scene. Closes out quite a bit at the extremes of tide, but can have a right of the eastern corner or some lefts beneath the towering monolith of the Pico do Morro.

Mellow crowds, particularly in the mornings and beginners will have plenty of safe, sandy whitewash to catch.
