I am an intermediate surfer and catch most waves easily, Supertubos is one of the more tricky ones I surfed so far. The swell comes from deeper sections of the ocean and builds up fast and steep just of the beach. However if it is not too big, the wave is great fun to ride even for my level. And... More

Possibly one of the best waves in Europe, big call, but when it fires it's sensational. Very heavy hard breaking wave reminiscent of Puerto Escondido in Mexico, a board breaker. The beach itself is lovely, nice sand and no buildings.

So this is an amazing wave. almost doesn't matter the size this place is drop to straight barrels. Very local dominated with body boarders. but respect others and you will get a wave This is for experience surfers only! anyone learning or not a very experienced surfer is bound to get hurt, either from the waves or from the locals

We visited here on a lovely, scorching hot day. My wife and daughter went for a walk down by the sea, where it was cooler. Whilst me and my son went off in the sand dunes, where he enjoyed rolling around in the sand, and running up and down the dunes. This activity didn't last too long though, lol

Plenty of space and plenty of surf. A fantastically clean beach with just enough waves for a decent surf, without being to intimidating for a swim. Appeared to be mostly locals, lots of bohemian and surf types hanging out here. Lovely dunes for shelter and a long expanse of uncluttered golden sand. One of my favourite beaches along the silvercoast... More

This beach has it all. The surf is top notch. There's tons of space on the sand to set up, but bring your own umbrella as they don't rent any out. It's DOG FRIENDLY, which is wonderful if you're looking for a place to take your fury friend. For those of you who don't have dog, don't worry, the dogs... More

Might not be the best wave in the world but it's definitely the best in Europe! Even if you don't surf, just pop by and whatch the perfection of those waves.
