Praia das Contendas

Set inside a Nature Reserve, this is not a wave for beginners, the right on this wave closes out near the rocks. The left, though, will leave you outside the breaking zone. This peak is quite consistent and is a good place to go when the swell is large, since the wave refracts as it enters the bay. There is good access by car bu little to no beach infrastructure.This right and left beach break (sand and stone) holds an excellent wave for intermediate and experienced surfers. This surf spot holds a yearly WQS event.

A sheltered point break, this wave works best with E, SW swell direction and with SW to NW wind. This wave is best when the swell is 0,5m to 2,5m.
