Faja da Areia in Madeira is an exposed point break that has unreliable waves with no particular seasonal pattern. Works best in offshore winds from the south. Tends to receive a mix of groundswells and windswells and the optimum swell angle is from the north northwest. Best around mid tide. Even when there are waves, it's not likley to be crowded. Beware of rocks, urchins.
