Julias Surf Guide

Julias in The Algarve is a beach break that has fairly consistent surf. Offshore winds blow from the northeast. Waves just as likely from local windswells as from distant groundswells and the optimum swell angle is from the southwest. Waves at the beach are both lefts and rights. Good surf at all stages of the tide. An uncrowded break, even when it is working.
