Praia da Amorosa in Douro and Minho is an exposed beach and reef break that has fairly consistent surf and can work at any time of the year. Offshore winds are from the east northeast and there is no shelter here from cross shore breezes. Groundswells and windswells are equally likely and the best swell direction is from the west. Waves at the beach break both left and right and in addition, both left and right reef breaks add variety. Good surf at all stages of the tide. Sometimes crowded. Take care of the strong rips here.
