Summer is arrived!
Summer is certainly here in the beautiful SW Algarve. The weather is warm/hot every day and the sea is a refreshing blue contrast. It has been noticed that the beaches are quieter this summer than usual at this time of year, so come and see for yourselves :).

Orcas have been spotted passing the coast, as well as dolphins, and ...July 17, 2019

Today we have a big north swell of over 3 metres pounding the Sagres & west beaches of Tonel, Castelejo and Cordoama. Added to that a levante southern swell of almost 2 metres is hitting the south coast breaks like Mareta and Zavial. Combined wave sizes making it too big for us middle-aged longboarders! Luckily we managed to get a sail in yesterday in our new Trimaran before the swell arrived. We sailed ...December 2, 2015 Posts 1-5 of 5 | Page
