Surf conditions in Praia da Areia Branca & Santa Cruz:
Air Temp (°C)
This amazing uncrowded coastline between Santa Cruz to Praia da Areia Branca offers many beach breaks and reefs. With beach breaks in each town suitable for learning and many off the beaten track waves along the coastline it is a great place to explore without the concern for large crowds.
Santa Cruz beach break gets good swell and waves are great on small to medium west swells. It can get crowded in the summer months but you only have to walk five minutes to find a peak that is quieter.
Praia da Areia Branca gets consistent surf and can work at any time of the year. Works best in offshore winds and best around low tide when the tide is falling. Even when there are waves, it's not likely to be crowded. Take care of urchins and rocks.
Don't forget to explore the towns of Peniche and Ericeira
