Praia da Amorosa Surf Guide

Praia da Amorosa in Douro and Minho is an exposed beach and reef break that has reasonably consistent 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. Windswells and groundswells in equal measure and the ideal swell angle is from the west. The beach breaks offer lefts and rights together with both left and right hand reef breaks offshore. Good surf at all stages of the tide. Sometimes crowded. Take care of the strong rips here.
