When you are in the town of Sal Rei, on Boavista look for a taxi that will bring you to Ervatão (famous beach) this will cost you about 5000 cape verdian escudos(50 dollars). Or you can rent a car and try to find the place. 4*4 is required. Its hard to find on your own; you can also hire a guide to come with you and show you were it is. A good guide that will arrange everithing is a cape verdian called Val. Ask for him in town, everyone knows him. negotiate the price with him.

Lots of reef and rocks, shallow, BIG AND LONG BARRELLS!!! very fast wave. not for beginners.
A beautiful place. you surf and you are looking at one of the most amazing sceneries, crowds are not a problem. Hardly anyone surfing there in winter but in summer you might encounter other traveling surfers. Don't bleed in the water, bull-sharks, tiger-sharks and small cazones are arround.

Surfed Ervatao since 1998 - I've been surfing and spare fishing this spot since 1998 and I SWEAR there are plenty of sharks. The wave is VERY fast not for begginers, swallow waters, rocky and sharp lava. Take it easy in there...Don't bleed on the water!!!
