This wave is the most well-known wave of the region. There are several peaks in the bay of Ribeira d ´Ilhas. They are all right handers and there can be found a wave suitable for each level. The bottom is rocky but the waves break in deep water. The waves are known for their length and can be surfed on all tides. It is good to surf here in our company because it gets pretty crowded. Ribeira D´Ilhas is the third wave of the reserve.
Coxos is considered to be the best right hander in Europe because of its consistency, length and perfection. The wave is tubular and breaks over a flat rock. There are many sea urchins so you have to be careful with going in and out of the water. It works best on a low tide and is only suitable for more experienced surfers. Coxos is the sixth wave of the reserve.
South of Ribeira D´Ilhas you find a beach called Empa. Reef is one of the surf spots on this beach. It is a short right breaking ride and it breaks very tubular. The rock it breaks on is sharp and the water is shallow. It is one of the treasures of professional surfers and local bodyboarders because on perfect days the tube is so intense that everyone comes out of the water with a smile on their face. The wave also causes the occasional damage. Reef is the second wave of the reserve.
