World’s biggest waves! And more
Surfer or not, everyone has heard about Nazaré’s huge waves. But there’s more to it. The town is about 130km north of Lisbon – please ask us first if you want us to deliver some boards there.+351 962 681 113 Email us
In 2011 Garret McNamara lands in Nazaré with a mission: to set the record for the biggest wave ever surfed. And he he did it! Two years later he broke his own record by surfing an insane 30m wave. Nazaré and its canyon had been “found” by big wave riders… by the world!
Praia do Norte is the peak for waves not meant to be messed around with; in Praia da Nazaré, next to the central promenade, you can surf fast and heavy waves; and Praia do Sul has tubular and fast waves on big swells.
Despite the big wave frenzy, Nazaré – the town – remains a picturesque fisherman village proud of its traditions – like fishmongers wearing seven skirts! So, expect more from it than “just” big waves. And for God’s sake, don´t you dare to miss a fish meal in one of the many awesome restaurants!
