Boavista is a great destination for surfing all year. About 100 meters south of the center there is a small reef with perfect waves for learning and progressing. Between the port and the islet there is Leao, a long and powerful wave. For the tow-in lovers English reef is the perfect spot with waves reaching up to 5-6 meters.
