Praia de Santa Cruz, Torres Vedras – Portugal

Praia de Santa Cruz

Pretty much like Santa Rita, Praia de Santa Cruz delivers perfect tubular inside sections throughout the year. Often times the waves are punchy and challenging, with shallow sections that might not be well suited for beginner surfers. In the hot months the swell is relatively smaller with offshore eastern winds smoothing out the ocean. There are literally dozens of peaks breaking everywhere, so you will most likely find an uncrowded corner to get your surf done.
