What a phantastic beach
Oct 2019
A lot of surfers full of praise of this beach. We enjoyed the view from above Bodeira. An impressive scenery. in the after season a relaxing joy to enjoy the rota vicentina and to sa our such impressions. There are plenty of nice places around Bideira to spend some days( or even weeks).

Beautiful spot

We called in here after going to Cape St Vincent - it’s 20 minutes drive up the coast. The sheltered beach is great for surfing, has a couple of cafes and good parking. The beach is sandy, gently shelving into the sea. It seems popular with surfers. For us from the south west of England, it was like finding a little corner of Cornwall in Portugal.

This lovely beach is another excellent surfer haunt. A narrow paved road leads off the Bordeira to Vila do Bispo road. There is a large car park above the beach (with irritating protruding round wooden pegs which are a trip hazard), and good board walks down to the beach. Surf boards can be hired.

Great sand and plenty of space

It's worth taking the long, paved, track to this beach as it has everything you could want. Primarily a surfers beach, with several surf schools operating here. The surf is fantastic by the way! Also enough food bars to satisfy the demand. The beach is wide and long so you can get away from the crowd if you want, and the views are great.

Surf trip

Great location, exposed to the Atlantic Ocean. Big car car (free), a fast food cafe and three surf shops for board and wetsuit hire. Get a wetsuit, even in the summer as the water is cooler than the Southern coast. Get out the surf forecast, we went with 1.8m swell and 0.7m surf which was challenging but ok to get out. Waves good at all states of the tide. Keep clear of the rocks in the middle. There was a few lifeguards on duty too.

Wide sand beach between Beautiful cliffs

Wave is high and strong current it is mostly for surfers. Lots of surf rentals and surf school found here. Very strong wind made us chill despite high sun. Advice to bring jackets or blankets.
