This spot is 2 min in car from the Praia da Vagueira. It's just behind a swimming pool complex for tourists that don't even known there's the Ocean at 100m! What a luck for us!

Best tide positionMid and high tide
Best tide movementRising and falling tides
Park the car at 100m from the spot.There's a bar and a lifeguard (only during the Week end). The swell is very easy to enter execpt when the wind is W. The tide is very important and the waves become more powerfull when the tide rise (be carrefull).
There're sand dunes promontories to watch the swell...beautifull place!
Even when we are 15 surfers there are enough waves for everybody. And the Locals are cool, not like in some spots where Locals think the waves belong to them...they belong to the one who can surf them!
