About Fajã da Areia

A.k.a 'Chickens' this spot is perhaps the most frequently surfed on the island, due to its relatively low danger level compared with other breaks. A hollow bowl at the peak leads into whackable performance walls on small to medium N swells.

Beginner/improvers favorite so often crowded. Always bigger than it looks from shore.
