Windsurfing in West Portugal

The incredible area of Cabedelo Beach is quickly becoming known for having perfect conditions for learning to windsurf.  What makes Cabedelo Beach so perfect for beginners looking to learn to windsurf is the large breakwaters at the entrance to the port of Viana do Castelo – these protective walls create perfect flat-water conditions along a stretch of the beach. 


A little further down the beach, windsurfers can find perfect wave conditions for the more advanced. The best winds are found during the summer months between May and September. The wind is normally a lot lighter in the mornings and will pick up nicely for beginners during lunch time, increasing in strength towards the afternoon with late afternoons being the best time for advanced windsurfers to take to the water to sore across the butter-flat water.
