In this series of articles “Surfing in Portugal” we will discuss surfing as one of the most entertaining and exciting tourist activities one can do when they visit our beautiful country, and hope to provide some basic guidance on how to secure the best possible surfing experience.
If surfing is one of the activities that you enjoy, or even if you have never tried it but it still sounds like something that would appeal to you, you will discover that surfing in Portugal is truly a privilege.
If you have read any of our previous articles on this site, you have probably already noticed that the country of Portugal has many different activities for tourists that you can take advantage of, and while
surfing may be just one of many, it can actually be a rather amazing part of your already extraordinary trip to a beautiful country that is Portugal. Beautiful sandy beaches and hotels that can accommodate sunbathers and surfers alike can be found all along the northern tip of the country. Finding the wave you want, however, can sometimes be difficult indeed. After all, all experienced surfers already know just how elusive the waves can be. Fortunately for you, there are plenty of ways to find a perfect surf in Portugal. All of the information that you need in relation to finding the proper surfing positions can be found in any of the numerous surfing maps that are available online.
Adhering to these maps would be rather wise – not only they will help you find the right place for surfing and provide you with the greatest possible thrill, but because the places on these maps have already been visited and used by other surfers for years, so you can rely on them in the sense that those places have already been tried and proved their quality as surfing spots.
They can also help you avoid getting up close and personal with one of many rocky or coral reefs that can be found in the ocean, and that can undoubtedly severely ruin not only your surfing experience, but your whole holiday in Portugal as well.
