Ilha do Farol in The Algarve is an exposed beach break that has quite reliable surf, although summer tends to be mostly flat. Works best in offshore winds from the northwest. Tends to receive a mix of groundswells and windswells and the ideal swell angle is from the south. The beach breaks favour rights. Best around mid tide when the tide is falling. Even when there are waves, it's not likley to be crowded.
