Surf conditions

The Algarve surf spots were the last to be discovered in Europe and although it doesn’t contain the classic reefs of central Portugal, the potential for good, uncrowded waves is high.

Average wintertime swells on the west coast are around 8-10ft, with 12-15ft maximums, whilst summer rarely goes flat and regularly gets up to overhead.

The south coast offers perfect shelter with offshore winds and a filtered swell although it is usually flat in summer. Tides vary from 4-12ft.

Rcommended wetsuit
