Faja Dos Padres in Madeira is an exposed beach and reef break that only works once in a while. Autumn and winter are the favoured times of year for waves. Offshore winds blow from the northeast with some shelter here from southeast winds. Waves just as likely from local windswells as from distant groundswells and the best swell direction is from the west northwest. The beach break offers both left and right hand waves. Good surf at all stages of the tide. Rarely crowded here. Submerged rocks are a hazard.
