Glamping

The word "glamping" comes from the words Glamorous and Camping, it is a form of camping with accommodation and facilities more luxurious than traditional camping, The tents you will be sleeping in are very spacious bell tents with premium mattresses and all bedding, light, and electricity. It is perfect for a family.

Activities

Every member of your family can find the perfect holiday fit! The camp offers different activities of all sorts from beach games to yoga and, of course, surfing. Apart from adult surf lessons for every level, the I Surf Portugal team has specialized in surf lessons for kids.

Surfing for adults

Surfing is not only for kids but for adults too! You will join the adult surf lessons in groups of a maximum 6-8 surfers per instructor based on your level. So, whether you are an absolute beginner or can already surf, we’ve got you covered! The surfing spot is about 15-20 mins drive from the camp and transfers are included for the surf lessons. The beach is perfect for all levels.

Surfing for kids

Kids' surf lessons are taught in small groups of 4-6 children per instructor in a fun and safe environment (younger ones are in smaller groups). Surf lessons are available for kids aged 8 years old and above. Kids' lessons can be taught in English, German, Portuguese, and French so your children will be able to understand everything. You can always join and translate if needed.

Swimming pool and activities

The camping park has a great swimming pool where your kids will want to spend time when they are not surfing. The local beach is only 7 mins walk so you´ll be able to enjoy the sea and sun with the kids when you´re tired of the pool.

Your family can use our bikes, skates, balls, cards, and board games at any time. The camping has a playground as well as football, volleyball, Basketball, tennis courts, and a mini golf. The camping park also organizes a kids club every afternoon.

Outdoor yoga

Yoga helps to increase core strength and flexibility, it´s also a nice relaxing time where you are in touch with the elements. Our yoga classes are for adults and teenagers and are taught outdoors. This package includes 4 yoga classes and can be booked online or onsite. You can also decide to join only one or a few classes as you feel like.

Nannies

While parents are having fun surfing, our nannies will look after the younger kids. This service is available at no extra cost when all parents have surf lessons. You can relax knowing your little ones (who are too young to surf) are in good hands.

Evening entertainment

When the sun goes down, join I surf Portugal around the campfire for a few drinks and some good vibes. You'll get to know the crew and the other families. Throughout the week there are a few activities including a pub quiz, movie night, cocktail night, etc.

Photos and videos

I surf Portugal's photographer will take some beautiful pictures of your family surfing which we will show at the end of the week. These are great memories that you will want to show your family and friends. Now, when you catch a wave remember to look at the camera and smile :)

Sustainability

I surf Portugal loves the ocean and our planet, that´s the reason why they went through a process of certification by Biosphere to be recognized as a Sustainable surf camp and company.

How to get there

Recommended Airports

You will receive the details after booking with all the info on how to get to the surfcamp. Here are some details:

Arrival by airplane

Please book your flight to arrive at Francisco de Sá Carneiro Airport (OPO). Airport transfer is not provided. Porto Airport (OPO) is about 10 mins drive from the camp.

Arrival by taxi

Taxi from Porto Airport (easiest and quickest): There are always many taxis at the airport. You can get a taxi from there directly without booking. If you prefer booking one in advance you can always use the Uber app. The price of a taxi is between 10 and 15 EUR.

Arrival by car

If you arrive by car, enter the following address into your navigation system: Camping Orbitur Angeiras, Rua de Angeiras - Lavra, 4455-039 Matosinhos. You can park your car in the external car park of the campsite or inside the campsite, both come with additional costs payable upon arrival directly to the camping park.

Once you arrive at the campsite Orbitur Angeiras, go to the reception and let them know that you’re staying with I Surf Portugal surf camp, they will guide you to the surf camp. In the evening, you will meet with the rest of the crew and the other guests to enjoy a welcome meal together!

Arrival by public transportation

Public transport from Porto Airport or Porto center (longest): Although it is not far at all, it is quite complicated and long to get to the surf camp by public transport as you have to get to Porto center by metro from the airport and then take a bus (which has many stops before reaching the final destination). From the airport, take the metro (purple line) to "Sete Bicas". From there take the bus line 104 to Orbitur Angeiras. Ask I surf Portugal for more information.
