Best surfing beaches Algarve
Some of the best surfing beaches in the Algarve include:
Praia de Faro
Not only is Praia de Faro a great location for surfing in the Algarve, but it’s also one of the most unique beaches you’ll ever see. The beach and mainland are separated by the Ria Formosa, so it almost feels as if you’re on an island. It’s best to check conditions on the day you plan to surf, but usually, the best wind direction is from the northeast at Praia de Faro.
Praia do Beliche
This beach is geared more towards advanced surfers. So if that’s you, then why not head to Praia do Beliche to try it out? It’s nicely covered by the coastal cliffs as they almost engulf the beach within its rock faces.
Praia da Arrifana
Another ideal location for surfers of any level. The backdrop is something special too with towering cliffs overlooking the beach. It’s another popular area for surfers due to its brilliant peaks across the beach. One of its biggest selling points is that it is protected from the north wind, unlike most other beaches in the area.
Praia do Amado
Could there be a more picturesque location for a bit of surfing in the Algarve? It’s tough to beat that’s for sure. Praia do Amado is surrounded by cliffs and hills that slope down to the beachfront, which contributes to the fantastic surfing conditions of this beach.
Praia do Tonel
Sagres is extremely popular amongst surfers and is renowned for its ideal conditions. Tonal Beach specifically is recommended by lots of surfers because It’s great for surfers of all levels! Its peaks cover the full length of the beach and offer unique waves all along the coast. Another point for Sagres!
