If you are visiting the Praia do Tonel, don't forget to bring your bodyboard/surfboard with you. The ground is sandy and has not many rocks.
The little beachbar and the surf-rentals are good too...

This was our second favorite beach in Portugal but a much quicker drive than arrifana. The beach is protected from wind and has nice views. We spent a few hours here and also had coffee and beers at the cafe on the beach. The parking made it seem like it would be busy but there is plenty of space for everyone.

Hi everybody, I found that the owner of pizza al puffo also has a surfboard rental next to the pizza al puffo! DoNT rent anything here! Poor English speaking staff, bad quality boards and wetsuits and crazy conditions when you damage a board. Somebody hit my board in the water and the outer layer of the board was cracked. So no hole or deep break in the board. I went out of the water to report the damage and the employee called the boss to inspect the damage. I understood 15 euro,s and I agreed because it's a fair price to repair this kind of damage. I know is just polishing the board with sandpaper and a a new layer. Not a long and expensive procedure. So a got a new board. I inspected the board and found a hole. I pushed around the hole and water was coming out. I told this to the employee and asked him if he could put some duct tape on the board to prevent more water coming in to the board. He told me it was not necessary. I laughed and told him it was his call. There was also a lot of wax on the bottom of the board. I wanted to get it off but the employee did not know what I was talking about. A lifeguard ( chilling next to the surf shack) told the employee to get a wax comb out of the shack. So I made the board wax free on the bottom and into the water. I had some good waves and when I returned I put the board and the wetsuit next to the shack. I went in to get my drivers license which I left there as a deposit and gave 20 euro,s to the employee as payment for the damage. He told me it was 50 euro,s for the damage. I laughed at him and I told him his boss and I agreed for 15 euro,s. Than the employee called his boss. Well, he went ballistic to me. He even didn't give me any time to speak. He is a complete nutter. First I had to laugh a little Portuguese lad running around me and yelling to me. To make a long story short I paid the 50 euro,s. Not because I felled threatened or the fact I was impressed but more that I felled sorry for the guy. This is my third time in Portugal and I only met friendly people. It's such a shame that the relaxed surf atmosphere was ruined today. Not only for me but for a lot of people to see him go nuts just because I was questioning the amount of money a had to pay for the damage. Maybe it's better for him to just make pizza,s and stop renting surfboards. Bring your own board and enjoy the waves!

Just happened to notice the sign for this beautiful beach while we were on our way to see the Fort and decided to have a look on our way back WOW!!! When it's busy parking can be a problem but well worth it because this beach is fabulous because it is so naturally unspoilt with a rustic beach bar overlooking the action on the surf.

Praia do Tonel is an awesome beach. There are some decent small summer waves. It's huge and not too crowded with a great beach-hut-bar that has some solid snacks as well as beers on tap.

Gorgeous beach, lovely views, brilliant waves for learning to surf or for a bit of excitement in the sea. Lovely little cafe on the beach with a really chilled vibe and lovely food.
