Region Information

Portugal’s coastline (1793km) holds the prime location on the Iberian Peninsulas coastline, receiving a wide range of unadulterated swell due to its short coastal shelf. It enjoys a wide variety of breaks which make a great place to learn or improve your surfing as well as all the big wave spots for the more experienced surfers. The mild climate and stunning cliff-lined coastline make it a popular destination for Europeans to escape the cold northern winters.

Portuguese Favourites

  • Praia do Amado (West): Most famous surf spot. Large sandy beach with dunes ideal for beginners - Only holds up to two meters. Respect the locals!
  • Carrapateira/Bordeira (West): Adjacent to Praia do Amado. Great surf spot with a sandy beach. Perfect for beginners, but watch out for the undercurrent. Great left handers if the banks are working!
  • Arrifana (West): North of Carrapateira, a scenic surf spot showcased by a high cliff. Beach break, usually half the size of other west coast beaches - good when others are too big.

Where to stay

With an array of options along the Portuguese coast we have accommodation to suite all travellers. From camper vans that will keep you cruising from spot to spot, to great surf camps catering for the most experienced all the way to a beginner or luxurious Surf Villas in Ericeira.

  • Surf Camps - for when surfing is your priority                     
  • Five Star - for a little indulgence and pampering
  • Camper Vans - for keeping mobile on a budget  

             

Go Exploring

Take guided walkson the wild West Coast of the Algarve, Rock climbing in the Algarve, Sea kayaking trips in Lagos, Sky Diving

Mountain biking or wake boarding There are so many adventures to be had. Portugal has so much to offer, it’s quite traditional and very cultural and the locals are friendly and welcoming.

The mild climate and stunning cliff lined coastline make it a popular destination for Europeans to escape the cold northern winters.

Staying warm enough in the winter and lovely breezes keeping it cool in the summer, Portugal has one of the best climates in Europe. This equates to having lovely sun filled days with a temperature that will let you sleep in the night time. Summer swell is smaller, about 3-5ft. It’s in the winter that Portugal gets great swell ranging from 5-10ft providing some much larger waves for advanced surfers.

Southern Portugal

  • Praia do Amado (West): Most famous surf spot. Large sandy beach with dunes ideal for beginners - this is were many surf schools do their teaching. Only holds up to two meters. Respect locals!
  • Carrapateira/Bordeira (West): Adjacent to Praia do Amado. Splendid surf spot with sandy beach accessed through a lagoon surrounded by dunes. Perfect for beginners, but watch out for the undercurrent. Great left handers if the banks are on!
  • Arrifana (West): North of Carrapateira, a scenic surf spot and beach showcased by a high cliff topped by a picturesque whitewashed village. Beach break, usually half the size of other west coast beaches - good when others are too big. To the right of the beach, you have a good reef break, good right, but it only breaks with at least 1.5 meter swell. Watch out for the "hamburger" or "Kangaroo" rock. Only for Kamikazes!
  • Sagres (West/South): Europe's southwestern most point, this peninsula is surrounded by the Atlantic to the south and the west, providing numerous surf spots and surfing options according to swell conditions.
  • Meia Praia (Lagos), Portimao and Faro (South Coast): On the Algarve's southern coast. Surf spots with good breaks offering a good alternative to the western coast when the swell is too big there, or when the SE wind (Levante) blows.
