Arrifana

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.

Surfing 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.

All year round

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.

Monte Clérigo

Monte Clérigo is a very popular beach among the people of Aljezur. A stunning open beach with some beautiful rock formations and sand dunes. The southern end of the beach offers the possibility on the low tide to explore the tide pools between the rocks. The surf in Monte Clérigo can get really good but unlike Arrifana beach, Monte Clérigo is not protected from the wind and big swells causing the sand banks to move more often, so rips and currents are more frequent and constantly changing.

It’s good

Since sand banks change more often different parts of the beach can be working. The waves generally pack some punch and can be quite hollow. In Monte Clérigo when it’s good… it’s good!!

Constant surf

South/southeast wind is the best and this is what makes this beach so special, these winds are quite common in Autumn and Winter. Can also work with east wind. Works with most swell directions. During the smaller summer months Monte Clérigo beach can guarantee that there is always surf. It’s very rare to see it flat… A great beach for learning how to surf in Summer
