Hmm not seen the conditions when you get breaking waves on a bar then I guess.

Watch this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O_Ot9A-8Qm0

then you decide if you think staying inside a cabin would be a viable option.

BTW I have cruised that coast and been in Figueira da Foz when they closed the entrance. It looks pretty serious from the land side but little of the violence is visible from the sea.
