"Fantastic facilities, beatuiful location and brilliant staff"

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Shark's Lodge! Carlos and Paulo are excellent surf instructors and make sure get the most out of each lesson. They have loads of experience and I learnt loads.

I stayed at Shark's Lodge during low season and all the staff made an extra special effort to make sure I had a great time despite staying on my own. They certainly went above and beyond! Paulo, Carlos, Severine and Ophelie (and Sally the dog) were fabulously welcoming and helpful.

Also, make sure you give the restaurant a try. The staff are super friendly and the food is delicious! Lovely open terrace for lunch after a mornings surf.

I'll definitely be going back when I get a chance.
