The surf beaches

Matosinhos is located north west of Porto looking out onto the Atlantica Ocean.

It houses the biggest artifical port in Portugal and has long been associated both with fishing and sea tranport industries.

Today, Matosinhos is geared towards tourism and its beach is regularly used throughout the year by surfers of all types and abilities.

The beach is medium sized and sandy with lots of space. This beach is a sand bar with frequent sloppy waves.

The swell size starts working at 1 meter and holds up to 2.5 meters. The waves come from right and left with a normal power.

In addtion you can find bars, restaurants a Shopping Center with Ocean View, the City Park, Sea Life, the Cheese Castle and many other points of interest with some limited nightlife.


With strong waves breaking onto vast expanses of gorgeous white sand, Leça da Palmeira is a popular venue for experienced surfers of all types, especially towards its northern part where it merges with Aterro beach.

There are rocks to the north and a big harbor mole to the south which is why this spot is not suited to beginners.

The beach lays just to the north of Porto and is well signposted. The water quality is clean with good, medium

sized waves for most of the time.

This destination is geared up for youngsters and there are plenty of bars and discos staying open until the early hours.


Situated on Portugal’s north western coast in the region of Porto lies the beach at Aterro. It is a popular spot for surfers of expert ability only. You really have to know what you are doing here because there are numerous hazards, such as large rocks in the water, strong currents and some pretty large waves. Aterro is a medium to large sized beach that is made up of sand and small pebbles.

The water quality is clean and conditions are choppy to wavy most of the time. However you can pick up some of the largest waves around (well over 3 meters) at this spot.

This spot has a lot of hazards, so do not surf here unless you are competent in your abilities. Watch out for strong tides and really large waves. Also look out for large rocks in the water that are exposed during low tide. Keep an eye out for other surfers in and around your area.
