Surfing in Portugal: What You Need to Know

Portugal is for you if:

Why is Portugal a popular surfing destination?

With 1,115 miles (1,794 km) of Atlantic coastline (continental Portugal plus the Azores and Madeira archipelagos), mild climate, some of the best waves in Europe and more gold-sand beaches than one can count, Portugal is a surfer’s paradise. The coast picks up north, south and west swells, which means solid surfing conditions all year round on a wide variety of waves for all levels and tastes.

Is Portugal a good place to learn to surf?

Summer, between June and September, is the best time to go to Portugal if you are looking to learn to surf on small to medium waves. Summer months are also great for kitesurfing. During winter months, waves are usually double the size or more, and recommended for more experienced surfers looking for a challenge. This is also when Nazaré in Praia do Norte comes to life, Europe’s big wave surfing mecca.

What are the best surf spots in Portugal?

The most famous surf regions in Portugal are North Porto, Costa da Prata, the Lisbon Region, Alentejo and the Algarve. Some of the best surf spots for beginners and intermediate surfers are Peniche, Ericeira, Lagos and Cascais.

What type of wetsuit do you need in Portugal?

In Northern and Central Portugal, you will need a wetsuit throughout the year – a 3/2 mm suit in summer and a 4/3-5/3 mm in winter. In Southern Portugal, you can surf in board shorts in summer. During winter, a 4/3 mm suit should suffice.
