Sunny Easter. March at the beach!

Surfing in March

When is the best time to go surfing in the West coast of Portugal? It’s a tough question. Both wet season and dry season have their draws.The best surf season on West coast runs from March to October, the cooler dry season.This spot produces world class surf conditions at this time of the year. Nature conspires to bring the essential surf elements: tide, wind, and swell together to create what can only be described as surfing the perfect wave. Praia da Areia Branca with his East winds, lights up, turns in to tube riding heaven and all the breaks along Peniche and Baleal complete the journey. Surfing here can be a fun trip, but, for advanced surfers, be ready for some paddling, the currents are often strong. Praia da Areia Branca keeps both beginners and advanced surfers coming back for more. In March, even with some little rain, the next day you can be paddling out under clear blue skies and water temperatures around 16º and air temperatures touching 21º Celsius . Enjoy empty sand beaches and crowdless surf spots. what’s not to love?
