Praia do Magoito

3/5

Everything you need to know about this surf spot

Praia do Magoito, located in the municipality of Sintra, is a great option if you are looking for a consistent surf spot with less crowds. It’s particularly known for its long righthander on the north side of the bay that works best with a bigger northwest swell. With higher tide, the cliffs provide some shelter from the prevailing northern winds.

Besides the righthander in front of the parking, there are multiple peaks along the beach with both left and rights that provide surf at all tides. Most of the bottom is flat reef covered with sand, but there are also some rock formations further south towards Praia da Aguda.
