The surf camp is just a 30-minute drive from Porto! Maceda Train Station is just five meters away from the surf camp. Maceda has become a popular surf destination for North Portuguese surfers, but is still relatively uncrowded by tourists. What's more, Maceda has great access to better-known destinations Cortegaça, Esmoriz, and Espinho.

With so much surf on the doorstep, it's amazing that this location has remained a secret for so long. The beautiful, off-the-beaten-track surf paradise, is waiting for you! The nearest cities, Porto and Aveiro, are just 30 minutes by car or train and are easily accessible. They highly recommend including a visit to either city during your stay. OPO is the nearest airport, although it's also possible to fly to Lisbon and take the train to Maceda. The closest train station to camp (Carvalheira-Maceda) is a 10-minute walk.

Maceda Surf Camp is located in a small village, in the middle of a protected coastal Pine Forest Reserve. It is the only accommodation with such good access to surf and nature. The forest road has a bike path that's great for cycling or skating and offers access to remote beaches.
