About Coxos

This European point/reefbreak gem peels down a series of rocky shelves and outcrops into a small bay. Coxos is long, fast and hollow when it hits the slabs just right. Power is the key word as swells unload out of deep water. It can handle big waves if the swells are clean and from the NW. When all the conditions come together you will see why this is Portugal’s best wave.

Entry and exit is tricky, getting caught inside is harrowing, the rips are brutal and urchins love the place as do the large local crew. Respect.
