Portugal > Sport Info > Surfing

 The Portuguese coastal waters provide some acceptable surfing accompanied by the warm climate and reasonable temperature of the sea. It probably offers the best possible location for this sport in Europe.

 A particularly challenging beach is the famous "Guincho" east of the city of Lisbon. The waves here can range from one to three metres but an under-current has to be constantly considered. Another popular location is "Praia Grande" on the north coast. South of Lisbon down to the Algarve there are many open sandy beaches that offer surfers the opportunity to ride the waves that come in from the west.
