A good, fun beach break which hold biggish swells. In the summer it does get a bit onshore-prone, so the best time to surf there is really after october.

the problem with this spot are the heavy rips in the middle of the beach. And take care with the rocks on the bottom because you can easily cut yourself. There are much better spots further down the coast, 15min away!

Malhao Beach - Great surf, although not for beginners! Hard to find and no signs. From Villa Nova follow signs for Cercal. At the Brunheiras roundabout turn left sign posted to Porto Novo. After about 2km you will see a left filter lane in the middle of the road on a corner. Take this left, follow the track down, past the campsite on your right and you will come to the top car park.

hard to find. - Didn't rate this place at all and hard to find as local have taken away all the signs. Ask in the nearby campsite for directions.
