The first few days had some fun waves on the exposed west facing beaches. Offshore winds groomed the head high waves with some pleasant weather and a handful of locals and other travelling surfers making the most of the winter waves.
A larger swell arrived on one of the days lighting up a point break further up the coast. Some fun waves where had whilst trying to avoid the protruding rocks that rise out of nowhere down the line up.
The Algarve also has one of Europe's largest skydive drop zones. A few trips to Alvor where had with some mid afternoon skydiving thrown in for good measure.
