The name speaks for itself! World class spot and undoubtedly the best beach break in Portugal - when it's on. Long, heavy tubes are guaranteed as well as a few shut-down close-outs, such is the speed of this wave. The lefts are usually better. It's at its best with NE winds, a decent S swell and mid-tide, but these conditions don't come around everyday.
There's no escaping the crowds or the foul smell from the nearby fish factory. Easy parking in front of the break.
