The best surfing spot in Europe: Baleal beach is boasting the reputation of being known as one of the best if not the best area to surf in Europe. In October is the Rip Curl World Surfing championships right on our stretch of beach in front of my house. All year round is great for surfing because the temperature is good and the waves are spectacular. There are lots of surf schools if you are a beginner and we can arrange lessons for you as we know good qualified teachers locally.
The area is very natural and unspoilt, beautiful and relaxing.
