Surf Trip in Algarve

 

Algarve is and has been the ideal place to spend the winter for many European surfers. In fact, here, during winter, when the sun is shining, you could still wear your t-shirt, like in summer season. The coast is made up by a series of bays, hidden among the high cliffs, that gives beautiful waves. The waves are characterized by high frequency, because this region is exposed to swells coming from different directions. Sagres, located at the South end of the region, is a quaint little town on a cliff overlooking the ocean. In winter, when heavy NW swells, accompanied by strong onshore winds, hit the West coast of Algarve, making it impossible to surf, this Southern tip protects the East coast that goes from Sagres to Faro, generating exceptional waves, made clean by the same winds that here blow offshore. In cases like these, try to check the beautiful beach of Mareta (Sagres) or Lagos for good waves.

Quando andare

The Algarve is a good destination for a surf trip all year round. During summer, the West coast (the most exposed) gives clean and not too big waves, ideal for beginners, who flock the many surf schools in the area. For the more experts, autumn and winter are the best periods, because they could give waves of exceptional quality on the Southern coast that goes from Sagres to Faro, which offers protection from the huge winter swells that hit the West coast. A 3/2 mm wetsuit is needed all year round, even in summer. Pay attention to the tidal influence of the spots in the region.
