Para a maioria o Algarve é considerado um dos melhores destinos de Praia para relaxar no entanto é aqui que se encontram alguns dos melhores spots de surf da Europa com fantásticos "swells" de Verão optimos para quem deseja aprender a surfar. Situado no extremo Sul da Europa usufruindo de uma posição geográfica favorável que oferece todos os tipos de ondas nas diferentes épocas do ano da Arrifana a Faro.
Uma das ondas de praia mais populares em Portugal e uma onda de grande diversão para surfar em qualquer nível de habilidade, Arrifana oferece uma onda em forma de crescente ea onda da mão direita é excelente em uma grande swell.
A localização é muito bom ea área excelente para conviver, desfrutar da cultura de surf e as belas paisagens ao longo da costa ocidental oeste Português. A praia pode ser cheia em um bom dia ofswell, que é de se esperar, mas a praia oferece muito em todas as condições.
Com a maré alta a onda pode ir um pouco macia, mas em uma maré baixa ele acelera e pode ser um grande pouco estripador de uma onda.

A very popular beach for surf schools and beginner surfers, Amado beach offers a lot of variety on many different wave conditions.
It has great right and left running waves so offers waves for both goofy and regular footed surfers. During a good swell it can get busy by the peak near the car park, but this is no surprise at most great waves in Portugal, locals like to surf too!
Tides do not effect waves and it can be surfed generally all year round, being one of the most consistent in the Algarve as it is open to all Atlantic swells, while still being sheltered by the north west winds.

This very isolated beach some 12km north of Sagres offers beautiful views and very consistent swells all year round as it is very west facing.
With Castelejo being so west facing it can beeffected by westerly winds. During summer months Castelejo being sowest facing can catch any small Atlantic swells making it a great summer beach break, making it a great to beach to learn how to surfin the summer sun.
In the autumn it lights up and can be offer world class waves if the winds play ball and the sand bars have had a good time to reset after the winter storms. Withit having multiple sand bars you can catch waves along the whole beach.

A small sheltered beach north of Sagres, Beliche beach offers agreat peak wave with the right swell. It has a car park very close to the beach on the cliff and the walk down to the beach is greatas you enter into the amphitheatre of cliffs surrounding the beach.
The large cliffs make this a spectacular beach to surf at. The best months to surf Beliche are before and after the main summer months.
A treat of a wave and beach to surf for the intermediate to advanced surfer when its working.

East of the town of Sagres, Zavial is one of the best known southern Portuguese waves. it can be fast and hollow and gets offshore winds a lot of the time so can make even smaller swells stand up.
The beach is not as exposed to west winds but does get good swells wrapping around and hitting it. Its a clean hollow wave when it gets good swell and on small swells is great for beginners and intermediates.
On top of all that itis also a great beach just to chill out at and have a relaxing swim when the waves are not breaking on it.

Praia de Faro is a beach right below Faro situated on a sand spit that offers fairly consistent beginner waves all year round. While the waves are not always huge they are great for learning and it offers good beginner and longboard waves throughout the summer.
It can be reached by bridge from Faro and is a great beach to learn how to surf with good surf schools and surf camps in the area. The beaches run for miles and there are waves for everyone when the swells are good.
