Lisbon is surrounded by world-class surfing spots just a few kilometers away! From waves just outside of the city to surf spots in Cascais for intermediate surfers and up, and Costa Caparica with surf for everyone. Lisbon is the surf capital in Europe with the best value for money. Combine your camp with this vibrant city. Lisbon offers the perfect combination between the option of a city trip to one of Europe's finest cities and the scenic nature to surf in, whether you're a beginner or experienced surfer!
With the most consistent surf conditions in Europe, Portugal is good for surfing all year long. The summer is perfect for those who want to test the waters and get their feet on a surfboard for the first time. Combine your surf camp in these months with exploring Lisbon or Sintra, and party away with long summer nights in the bars of Lisbon’s Pink Street or in Barrio Alto.
In the ‘off season’ months of the fall, winter, and spring, the air temperature rarely gets cold, the swell gets stronger and the waves get higher. These conditions are perfect for intermediate and advanced surfers. In October you’ll find plenty of surf competitions around in Ericeira, Peniche, and Nazare to learn or participate. Since the water temperature, unfortunately, doesn’t get very warm, it’s recommended to wear a wetsuit all year long.
Lisbon is known for its vibrant nightlife. During the warm nights, it may occur you’ll find the bar completely empty, and all people are standing outside the beer having their drinks. This is a very common sight in Lisbon, which makes the nightlife in the city very open and the people approachable. Famous places for nightlife in Lisbon is the area of Barrio Alto, the Pink Street, or the Lisbon Time Out Market.
Don't forget to try out their patry! The most traditional and recognizable pastry of Portugal, the Pastel de Nata, is originated in the area of Lisbon. Created by the Catholic monks at the Mosteiro dos Jerónimos in Belém in Lisbon, the monks sold the recipe in 1834 after closing of their monastery to Fábrica de Pastéis de Belém. Today, this bakery is still making these pastries on a daily level. The egg tart with cinnamon is ranked the 15th most tasty delicacy in the world.
