About Amoreira

An exposed beach with a rivermouth under a headland at the south. It picks up heaps of swell and the currents tend to move the sand around meaning the banks can be fickle, however there can be a good left in the rivermouth peeling towards the middle of the bay and a sand covered reef producing rights at the northern end. Best when small and clean.
