Da Silva Surfcamp Portugal has double rooms, triple rooms, four bedrooms, and seven bedrooms. The double rooms share a bathroom with shower. Each of the dormitories has its own bathroom. The communal kitchen, where breakfast is served every morning, is located on the ground floor next to the large covered outdoor area, where barbecue evenings take place. In total, they have room for 22 persons. But this is spread out quite well because there are many corners and niches where you can retreat to if you want to read a good book in peace and quiet.


With Da Silva Surfcamp, you can learn to surf easily and safely. They have the best surfing equipment for all levels and bring you to the most beautiful beaches with the best waves in Europe. Since 2016, the Da Silva Surfcamp performs the surf classes with the internal Da Silva Surfschool and helps beginners and advanced surfers on the board.

Depending on the wave conditions and level of the students, the classes take place at different surf spots a maximum of 20 minutes drive from Praia da Areia Branca. It is important to note that these are beaches which are not as crowded as the famous beaches of Peniche.

The surf courses are usually held from Monday to Friday. However, some sessions may have to be canceled due to weather or wave conditions. In this case, alternative activities are offered, such as excursions to the surrounding area, SUP sessions, skateboard sessions or similar.

At the end of the complete course (beginner and/or advanced) each student should be able to stand on the board (take-off) or surf in the unbroken part of the wave (green water). The individual successes depend heavily on the motivation, talent and general physical fitness of the student. The price includes bus shuttle, surfboard and wetsuit, theoretical and practical lessons and insurance.

Da Silva Surf Camp Portugal is a typical Portuguese cottage where one can spend an unforgettable surf holiday and can learn surfing fast and safe, including an intense impression of the Portuguese way of life and culture. Da Silva Surf camp Portugal is located amid nature without any traffic nearby.

The site is surrounded by spacious fields and one has a fantastic overall view over the green landscape and the wide valley up to the opposite villages. From the huge sun deck, one can comfortably see the blue sea and the seaside resort Praia da Areia Branca while laying in the hammock. At dawn, one can experience gorgeous sunsets.

There are several routes through the landscape to the beach - by foot within 20 minutes. With the beach cruiser, which one can rent at the camp, it won't take 10 minutes and by car via the highway, one will be at the beach within 3 minutes.

Although you are so close to the Atlantic Ocean, you will feel like you are somewhere in the country far away from the hustle and bustle of beach life.


Dustin will be amazed when the gates of the Dino Park in Lourinhã, the capital of the dinosaurs, are opened in 2018. And certainly, the museum shop will have some Hoodies available for the Stranger Things protagonist. But will they be as successful as those of the Science Museum of Minnesota? Anyway, a friendly small town has a skate park and a huge ocean to offer.

Praia da Areia Branca

Praia da Areia Branca is located 70 km north of Lisbon and not far (2km) from the surf camp. Far away from the hustle and bustle of tourists, small cafés, cozy restaurants, and a relaxed nightlife make this small coastal town immediately attractive.

In summer many Portuguese come to Praia da Areia Branca for a swim and there is more action. Nevertheless, on the long, white sandy beaches everyone finds his place. The often deserted surf spots offer perfect waves for every surfer - whether chicken or turtle.

Only 15km further north, Peniche is one of the most legendary surfing areas in Europe, with its very own season’s highlight, the World Surf League tour stop, the Rip Curl Pro Portugal. By the way, also in Peniche at home and frequent stop of the surf school, the Fatum Surfboards Factory.
