Praia de Altura in The Algarve is an exposed beach break that does not work very often. Summer in particular tends to be flat. Offshore winds blow from the north northwest. Waves just as likely from local windswells as from distant groundswells and the optimum swell angle is from the southeast. The beach break provides left and right handers. Best around mid tide when the tide is falling. When the surf is up, it can get quite busy in the water.
