Had a great time in early September this year. Windy enough to kite 6 out of 8 days. Lots of nice waves. Nice people. Beautiful area. Reasonably priced. Easy to get to. Not for beginners though..yu have to be able to get through the waves and there are a number of dangerous rocks that you need to be able to avoid. I made a thorough google map with eating, accommodation, kiting info on it...http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?ie=UTF8&hl=en&msa=0&msid=110169577205129825475.00047231ee353351602fa&ll=38.724325,-9.462318&spn=0.028459,0.040255&z=15

Thanks to ssameer and mbigger for the advice prior to coming. Would definitely come back!

Cheers Graham, this info is exactly what I needed, I am hoping to go over in my camper next year, catch the ferry to Santander and drive down from there. I take it early sept could be a good time to go, as it should be cheaper out of school hols and still windy.

Any more info you are wishing to share would be ideal
Thanks
Steve

Hi, may june and july are the best moths for wind. Bring the smallest kite you can. Night life is great at the Bar do Guincho or in Cascais.
Drop me aline becore you come if you need help.
