It’s a fast, hollow and powerful right wedging up off the cliffs at the far end of the beach. It can be a mission getting a wave off the locals. Needs a moderate SW or big W-NW swell to break and mid tide to avoid closing out.
The most famous of the Algarve south coast spots and also the busiest with a local crew who are on it at the slightest sniff of a wave. If the scene here is too hectic then a drive around might reveal further goods. Medium consistency in slightly warmer water temps than the west coast.
