Albufeira in The Algarve is a sheltered beach break. Summer in particular tends to be flat. Offshore winds are from the north northeast and there is no shelter here from cross shore breezes. Groundswells and windswells are equally likely and the ideal swell angle is from the south. The beach breaks favour lefts. Good surf at all stages of the tide. Unlikely to be too crowded, even when the surf is up.
