Monte Leão is generally a surf spot, but when the wind comes from the NE it transforms into a good windsurfing spot. It’s named after the big mountain which is just behind the beach, which has magnificent views. It requires a medium or large swell from the NW to work. It’s located south of the mountain and because of this the wind is slightly gusty, but it means the waves don’t get ruined and it can produce perfect rights which are very long. The bay is also a popular place for freeriding when the conditions are right with transparent flat water. On the other side of the mountain, towards the north, you’ll find Alibaba and Curral Joul is a few more kilometres further north.
