The Portuguese coast provides some very acceptable
windsurfing conditions accompanied by the tendency for
the winds to be reasonably constant in force. These winds
mostly average between Force 3 to 5.
A particularly good windsurfing beach is the famous
"Guincho" east of the city of
Lisbon. The waves here can range from one to
three metres but an under-current has to be constantly
considered. Another popular location is "Praia
Grande" on the north coast.
In the Algarve there are many windsurfing centres on
the beach that will rent equipment.
