Jardim do Mar
Madeira Island has been called the Hawaii of Europe and Jardim do Mar is the "Crown Jewel" of the archipelago. Possibly one of the best waves of the world, Jardim picks up a lot of swell and can be surfed from 1 meter all the way to 6. Not a good spot for beginners or even average surfers, but an amazing wave for high level surfers and big wave riders.
Not easy to get in or out in big days, it works best in offshore winds from the northeast. Windswells and groundswells in equal measure and the ideal swell direction is from the west.
