Sao Torpes Beach and surf break is a dream. The main pick is in front of the small bridge. Ideal surf spot for beginners and intermediate. Not so good for surfing in the summer months: too small waves, not much to play with. But very...More

Nice beach with warm water next to wall of rocks. On summer it's difficult to park the car. There are surf schools on the beach.
