Forget the classic idea of surf camp and think about a luxury chalet!
The outstanding coastline of the Algarve counts on plenty on waves both in its West and South Coast, depending on swell and wind direction.
The countryside of the Algarve is a gently undulating mesh of forests and small fields, leading down to an undeveloped coastline of high cliffs and long empty beaches scattered with rocks. A great variety of sandy bottom breaks and points roll at every corner and can get really epic when the right condition line up.
Great local food, wild nature, a rich ecosystem and a welcoming traditional culture are just a plus to the good surfing of the area, making it a great destination for non-surfers alike!
Renown to be one of the warmest areas of Europe due to its geographical position, the surf is all-year-round with the best waves to be found during the fall months.
