About Carrapateira

Along a winding track to the south of Carrapateira village, this consistent beach has more shelter than Praia da Bordeira and a right breaking off a large rock from mid-low tide. Average peaks break further down the beach.

Popular with Algarve surf schools, despite the odd rip.
