Cave

Listing has verified and belong the business owner or manager.

On the southern flank of the Dois Irmãos Bay (a 10-minute walk from the northern slope of Ribeira d’Ilhas) we find the Cave.

This threatening right has only recently started to be surfed, having gained notoriety in recent years due to its spectacularity. It is extremely radical, tubular and risky. With an angle of the coast still facing south, it breaks over a reef plate that does not connect with land, located at very little depth. The suction of water from the bottom of the wave towards its top is so intense that this part below the water line – hence the name -, with the tube that forms there to become progressively more hollow, wide and flat as the wave approaches the end. The Cave is only intended for experienced and technically advanced surfers, and even these are advisable to use protections.

Impressive! The area is extraordinary for surfing but also for those who want to admire an impressive "work" of nature.
