Praia da Amorosa in Douro and Minho is an exposed beach and reef break that has quite reliable surf and can work at any time of the year. Offshore winds blow from the east northeast and there is no shelter here from cross shore breezes. Waves just as likely from local windswells as from distant groundswells and the ideal swell direction is from the west. The beach break offers both left and right hand waves together with both left and right hand reef breaks offshore. Good surf at all stages of the tide. Sometimes crowded. Watch out for dangerous rips.

FEATURE UPDATE: we now show red swell icons for 'open sea' swells that are travelling in an unfavourable direction for the surf break. In places, these swells may still wrap around coastlines and produce smaller waves at some breaks. They are also significant for windsurfers and other water users that tend to venture further off-shore.
