Amado beach is one of the most popular beaches in the West coast, specially during the Summertime because it is sheltered from the dominant NorthWest winds, typical of this period. It is located just before Carrapateira village, 10mins North of Vila do Bispo and 35mins of Lagos(driving distances).
Facing West it is a beachbreak, with some reefs on the right side of the beach. It is a consistent surf spot, with a lot of lefts and rights to choose from.
Works well with all swells.
Both North and East winds are good for this beach.
Suitable with all tides.
One to eight feet waves(it will always be a little bit smaller than Castelejo and Cordoama).
