Program

Hello dear guest!

Alentejo Surf Camp wants you to enjoy every minute of your stay with us and be able to dedicate yourself completely to surfing!

That's why, be ready to spend much of your time at the beach, chasing sun and waves, and enjoying Portuguese hospitality in our Surf House!

Every your day starts with a delicious homemade breakfast, which takes place in our sunny patio where all guests and our Surf team are enjoying it all together, sharing plans and expectations from the following surf day.

Then be ready to go to the beach, where, depending on surf forecast, you will do max two surf sessions: first 2 hours of surf lesson, then a break and then more 2 hours self-practicing with photo-coaching.

During the break, you can chill at the beach or go for a coffee with the best Pastel de Nata around or for simple, but incredibly tasty Portuguese lunch: soup and "Tosta Mista".

Arriving back home closer to the evening you will probably have energy only to take a shower and then to have dinner with us in the Surf House! Yes, we also offer homemade dinners made by our volunteers, and thanks to the wide geography of their nationalities - you can try the most delicious food from all over the world.

After there are a few options: to go to town for delicious ice cream (also homemade, by the way), to go to the bar (if you still have some energy left), or to stay in the Surf House, chilling in the garden, drinking Portuguese wine and chasing stars.

Can it be better? Yes, it can if you, by any chance, like to play guitar!

Included excursions

You will explore with us the most beautiful coastline and National Park of Portugal - Southwest Alentejo and Vicentine Coast Natural Park surfing on different beaches and hidden surf spots.

We will show you the Pearl of Alentejo - the small town of Vila Nova de Milfontes where the river Mira meets the ocean.

You will visit Sines, the motherland of famous Vasco da Gama, and will try the best Pastel de Nata in Alentejo.
