Description

Praia da Vitoria is located east of the third island of the Azores. From October to March it works with good waves, working with swell E.

It is a semi-protected spot with a sandy bottom with left-hander waves with different peaks: Chines (left), Vietnam (left) and Baixa (also left).

Usually, there are many people when it works, always respect the locals. Good to learn for its sandy-bottom and absence of strong currents.
