Ilha Deserta in The Algarve is a fairly exposed beach break that has very consistent surf. Summer offers the optimum conditions for surfing. The best wind direction is from the north northwest. Tends to receive a mix of groundswells and windswells and the optimum swell angle is from the south. The beach break provides left and right handers. Good surf at all stages of the tide. An uncrowded break, even when it is working. Surfing here means negotiating dangerous rips.
