Miramar in North Portugal is an exposed beach break that has pretty consitent surf, although summer tends to be mostly flat. Ideal winds are from the east. Waves just as likely from local windswells as from distant groundswells and the best swell direction is from the west. The beach break offers both left and right hand waves. Best around mid tide. It's sometimes crowded here. Rocks are a hazard.
