Arrifana Beach

Arrifana beach the “jewel” of Aljezur lies within a very protected bay surrounded by steep cliffs. A small fishing port and a winding road leading to the beach complements the beautiful scenery that Arrifana offers. The surf in Arrifana is for all levels.

The powerful right hander point break makes the delight of the advanced/experienced surfers and the beach break is excellent for beginners, intermediates and also advanced surfers. A very accessible and safe beach given its protection from wind and big swells.

The surf in Arrifana is good with the wind blowing from north to east. One of the greatest advantages of Arrifana is that with North wind (predominant wind) it’s side-offshore. It works with most swell directions but with the most common north/north west direction its needs some swell and period. Works consistently throughout Autumn, Winter, Spring and beginning of summer. A great spot to learn how to surf.
