The Surf

Probably the least talked about region of Portugal amongst surfers. Above all, the northern provinces of Minho and Douro feature a super consistent and varied stretch of coastline. With the ancient town of Porto sitting in the heart of the region, there’s also plenty to do and see when it’s flat.

The Port region, in the north of Portugal, is still very unexplored under the surfering point. Likewise its potential for waves is not to be underestimated. Thanks to the powerful swells of the North Atlantic, which hit on these coasts throughout the year. We find in this region a very high number of high-quality beach breaks and pier waves with very high frequency. Waves for all levels, from the beginner as well to the most intrepid waves hunters. You can easily find yourself surfing a peak alone or with your friends. Surely, the Portuguese coast has the highest frequency of waves throughout Europe, even in summer the swells are frequent. Indeed quality waves insured!
