It’s kind of a secret paradise of surf in Portugal because there are not so many crowds and the surf spots still hold its natural beauty away from mass tourism.

If in the main surf spot, Cabedelo Beach, the surf conditions aren’t the best, they are many breaks to explore and the team can take you to another spot close by, such as Buarcos, Murtinheira, Poço da Cruz, Barra or Costa Nova. If you’ve never surfed here, you've been missing out a memorable holiday, so come and you will easily fall in love with this little paradise.
