São Pedro do Estoril – Bico

4/5

Everything you need to know about this surf spot

Bico is a mellow pointbreak in São Pedro do Estoril. It’s a long righthander that picks up most swell of all the breaks on this stretch of coast. Situated on the west side of the beach called Praia de São Pedro de Estoril, it is a fun wave that is a favourite amongst longboarders and less experienced surfers.

With more swell and the right swell direction, this righthander can connect all the way to the inside with a section called ‘Esquerda da Rocha’ (the rock’s left). The shore break can be quite heavy with a rising tide, so take care with getting in and out of the water. There is also another surf break called Bafureira on the other side of the bay.

Please note that the best time to surf this stretch of coast is October to March. In the summer there are usually no waves!
