At that time the beach turns into a paradise for surf lovers, who get their adrenaline running as the high waves or ‘kangroos’ rise up from the ocean. If surfing is not of interest, visitors can also visit the nearby Moorish ruins that give a glimpse of the region’s history as well as offer some panoramic views of the beautiful Vicentina coast.
