The long sandy beaches of the area have the 'nortada' the Portuguese trade winds blowing along them in the afternoons keeping the climate temperate and giving enjoyment to the surfers and especially the wind surfers.

There are 10 bedrooms for guests, 8 with air conditioning. All bedrooms have en-suite facilities, TV, radio and telephone. It is possible to sleep in the bed in which the King of Portugal slept in former times.
