Considered the best location of the Portuguese coast, and one of the best in the world for windsurfing, Guincho Beach hosts every year several national and international windsurfing competitions, for which Bar do Guincho contributes with its support.
At Guincho the wind starts blowing from March and continues until October; July and August are the months with better conditions. The wind direction is predominantly from the North-West with a side/side-onshore angle and rarely blows if the weather is cloudy. Due to the thermal conditions the wind usually starts to be felt after lunchtime (at around 18 knots, 35 km/h, 10 m/s) and becomes stronger towards the end of the afternoon (reaching 33 knots, 65 km/h, 18 m/s).
The Bar do Guincho Sailing Center installations are situated 50m from Bar do Guincho, and offers equipment rental along with surf, windsurf and kite-surf lessons. Lockers are available for guests to store their equipment. https://www.live2wind.com
