If you want, you could book your yoga in advance so they are able to secure the classes for you. Everybody is welcome, whether a beginner or a pro, and classes can always be taught at least in English and Portuguese. German and French surf and bodyboard classes are also available.


All year, every day and until the timetable determined under the sea condition and tidal team, Surf At Praia das Maçãs and Surf At Praia Grande surf school sessions have lasting 2-hour lessons. These lessons come with a ratio of one instructor for every five students in order to waive the required attention and instruction to each student.

All equipment is included and adapted to the level of each surfer. These highly skilled and experienced instructors know all the surrounding breaks and will take you there according to the best conditions. The instructors will paddle out with the students and explain each rip current and where to position oneself on the lineup. All equipment, insurance, and transfer if you need to move to other beaches, are included.

Aldeia da Praia sits right between a sandy pine forest and the two Sintra beaches of Praia das Maçãs and Praia Grande. It is a seven-minute walk from the camp to both destinations with fine, white sand where the waves are rolling in. At sunset, you will have the most beautiful view with the sun disappearing into the sea. You'll find a common kitchen, supermarket, and a few cafés and restaurants, all around the Aldeia da Praia where the hostel is located.

How to get there

Recommended Airports

Driving directions

Just 8 kilometers out of Sintra, you will find the village in between the beaches of Praia Grande and Praia das Maçãs. When coming from Sintra, take a right in Colares, heading towards Praia das Maçãs for 2 kilometers. Go straight on the round-about (first exit) and after 200 meters, you'll find the hostel and glamping, Aldeia da Praia, to your right.

Arrival by bus

If you take the bus from Sintra Portela station, catch the 441 (to Praia das Maçãs) and get off at the roundabout where Telepizza is. The stop is called Ponte Rodizio. The venue is just in front of there. You will see already the tall water tower painted all in white. Alternatively, you can take the 439 (direction Praia Grande) and walk for 5 minutes down the hill.

Arrival by train

From the Lisbon Airport, take the metro, three stops to Oriente train station and from there, catch the train to Sintra Portela. From there, take the 441 bus as indicated above or take the antique tram (the eléctrico) that rides you right into the center of Sintra in a wonderfully slow 45-minute ride in the red, antique cable car (only during summertime).

Airport: Lisbon Portela Airport Airport transfer available: Lisbon Portela Airport (US$ 54 per person) Additional charges may apply. You can request this in the next step.
