The west coast of Portugal is undoubtedly a surfing paradise. Fantastic beaches and first-class surf spots attract many surfers from all over the world. But many do not yet know that our coast is also ideal for mountain biking!<br>by the way<br><br>Incidentally, we have the best mountain bike weather here in spring and autumn. Not too hot, but warm enough to be in short gear. While you are still waiting for the summer at home, you can already go here unforgettable MTB tours in glorious weather.

This is such a nice beach. It's large, so there's a lot of room, and the water is really clean. There are waves, but they're quite gentle so they're good for surfing or if you just want to take a dip.

Came with the family and we had a great day. The beach is quite big with plenty of space for everyone to be well over 2m apart due to covid19. Parking wasn't an issue, we arrived around 11 and there was lots of space, at least during weekdays on vacation. Lots of surfers here as it's a hotspot for surfing. Water is a bit cold, not that bad really, but once you get in you're good. Highly recommended, will come again!

In the Baleal, you don't get one but two beautiful twin beaches: one more quiet for families and kids, the other one more wild and appealing to surfers. An old geological feature creates an island' alike in the form of a small peninsula dividing the sandy coast into two contiguous beaches looking east and west. It is a charming place, right sandy spot, and gorgeous seawater. The primary constraint is the very poor infrastructures: disabled car parking, dirty accesses, lack of basic washrooms, and showers. In parallel, the beaches are too crowded, and constructions in the area spread as rabbits: the wrong away to promote sustainable tourism.

Beautiful beach that goes on for miles. Can choose more surfer side or a calmer side. Lots of restaurants and cafes available.

Ilha de Baeal from above! More on instagram: @giuseppecannavoo Easy to access by car, not many parking places and much more enjoyable in low season. There are a few bars but there are mostly only houses and accommodations. Before the "entrance" to the island you can also find some surf school. It's very windy but still an amazing location where to watch the sunset. If you're into aerial photography such as me be aware of the seagulls, there're a lot of them here.
