Lagoa de Óbidos

Região Centro
The shallow 'Lagoa de Óbidos' is Portugal’s biggest lagoon – ideal for kiting and light-wind freeride windsurfing. Long fins can easily catch on the sandbars at low tide though, and there are strong currents at the mouth of the estuary. Almost all wind directions work on the lagoon, even gusty easterlies are reinforced by nearby mountains. Most riders launch near 'Foz do Arelho' – or in summer when kiting is prohibited in the estuary and northern part of the lagoon, try the windsurfing school ('Este') or Praia do Bom Sucesso ('Sul') on the far bank.
