"My experience in Ferrel Surf house was perfect! The house is wonderful with a beautiful view especially during the sunset. very well equipped kitchen. Beautiful, spacious, comfortable and very clean rooms. Calm - perfect for a relax before and after surfing..."
"...The hostel was a home away from home- the bright colours, the staff and the guests (experienced and beginner surfers) - we couldn't have been happier. The surfing instruction was very professional (Miguel!!!) and the instructors made us feel comfortable to go after the big waves (we traveled to 4 different beaches)..."
"Have just returned from my 14 day at Surf Castle. I’ve been surfing in Penice many times before, but this was my first stay at the Surf castle. Loved the atmosphere, location, crew, house, breakfast…I think Surf Castle is the place to be in Peniche. So many cool people from all over the world. Congratulations on setting up such a perfect surf vibe!"

Four super unique teacher from all over the world make you have fun, feel safe and actually learn quite a lot in some few lessons. They are pretty great guys to hang out as well and are dealing fantastic with kids..."
Be amazed by Portugal’s culture, amazing cuisine, and beautiful landscapes
Portugal is all about amazing food, historically and culturally rich cities, stunning countryside, picturesque coastal towns and villages soaked in sea-faring traditions and lots of sun. Surfing in Portugal is all that and much more. Its 850 km of coast is lapped by both the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea which means the country itself is colored with an enticing blend of cultures.
Portugal is home to some of the best waves in the world
The potential of waves in Portugal is just ridiculous - plain an simple. Hundreds of kilometers of coastline translate to long, long stretches of beach, full of left and right peaks, all punctuated with inlets and coves with plenty of river mouths, pointbreaks, and reefs to explore. As if this isn't enough to entice wave hunters, it is also home to Supertubos - Europe's best beach break and arguably one of the best on the entire planet.
Portugal offers something for all levels and all budgets
Portugal surf trip options seem to have something intended for keeping all-comers happy – from total novices to experienced, advanced surfers and from budget-conscious travelers to seekers of comfort and even luxury holiday standards. There are choices to suit those looking to party and there are choices for those looking for retreat, tranquility, and seclusion.
Surf epic waves 365 days of the year
Portugal is an all-year-round surf destination thanks to miles and miles of coastline which picks up about every Atlantic swell. Primetime is from October to April when the waves truly turn from good to world class and every type of break, from beach breaks, reefs, river mouths and points light up.
Portugal has waves in about every corner of the country
The majority of our Portugal surf trip options are based in Ericeira, Peniche or the Algarve region which is further divided into South Algarve and North Algarve/Alentejo. Ericeira, Portugal's surf Mecca, offers up mostly reef breaks producing hollow, powerful waves while Central Atlantic Peniche, home to the iconic Supertubos, has an almost bewildering wave variety crammed into the area. If you are prepared to explore a little, even the possibility of finding waves going unridden – until you get on it that is.
