BEACHES & WAVES
In recent years, the Costa Vicentina has become one of the most popular surf regions in Europe, and not without reason. In addition to excellent conditions for surfers, it also offers one of the most beautiful and varied coastal areas in Europe.
Thanks to the balanced climate, the conditions from June to November / December are pleasant. Rudolfo goes surfing whenever possible and always knows where the perfect wave is on. In summer it is mostly Odeceixe or Arrifana. In autumn, when the waves are higher, there are often different point breaks.
We have surfboards and body boards in various sizes, as well as wetsuits for rent. If it fits, we also like to go on a surf trip with advanced surfers, preferably early in the morning.
There are recommended surf schools for beginners in Odeceixe. There is also the opportunity to properly train body board with an excellent guide.
Thanks to the Costa Vicentina Natural Park, there is no mass tourism on our beaches, which are among the most beautiful in Europe. Most of them are bays surrounded by bizarre cliffs with a wonderful white sandy beach, and the choice is difficult. The beaches of Carvalhal, Machados and Amália are only five km away.
The Odeceixe beach, chosen by the Portuguese as the most beautiful in the country, is 12 km away, like Zambujeira do Mar. If you prefer to be lonely, you can swim almost alone on beaches like Carriagem or Alvorião, even in midsummer.
The beaches of Alteirinhos near Zambujeira do Mar and Adegas near Odeceixe are designated as official Naturist beaches.
