Vila Real de Santo Antonio Surf Guide

Vila Real de Santo Antonio in The Algarve is an exposed beach break that only works when conditions are just right. Summer offers the optimum conditions for surfing. Works best in offshore winds from the north northeast with some shelter here from east winds. The short fetch makes for windswells rather than groundswells and the ideal wave direction is from the south southwest. The beach break provides left and right handers. Surfable at all stages of the tide. It very rarely gets crowded here.
