The two well known surfing breaks in Figueira da Foz are Cabedelo and Buarcos. Cabedelo is situated South of Figueira da Foz across the mouth of the River Mondego. You can cross the bridge either by taxi or bus (buses run every half hour on weekdays and the fare is €0.85), if you have your own transport there is plenty of parking at Cabedelo. Buarcos can be reached by foot, just walk along Figueira da Foz's main beach to the end.
If you'd prefer to use transport, buses run from the station to Buarcos every half hour on weekdays and hourly on weekends, expect to pay around €0.85 for the fare. There is parking at Buarcos, but be warned- it gets very busy in the height of the season! There're also other breaks nearby which can be epicand uncrowded but we can't tell you about them unless you visit us.
A breakwater with sandbars found at the mouth of the River Mondego, that has been host to the WQS, national and local surfing competitions. The best conditions to surf Cabedelo are in medium swells, the break is off-shore in Easterly winds. The break works on all states of the tide.
A less well-known but equally as good as Cabedelo in the right conditions. It works best on mid to low tides. This is a right-hand, sand covered rocky point break and there can be strong rips when the swell is big, so only attempt to surf this break if you're experienced.
There's loads of other breaks within walking distance, public transport and driving - but we're not going to tell you about them until you're here, we can't have the whole world knowing about all the spots!
