I've now been 4 times to the Surf Castle and plan to go back! A great place to travel with friends, family or solo. Lots of great people, Joao and the rest of the Surf Castle team will ensure you get the most out your stay. Great food, beautiful beaches and wonderful people. A magical place not to be missed!
Joao was the perfect host, a larger-than-life character with great local knowledge; most importantly where the best places are to eat! Really liked my room in the house and i had great beach views. You really don't have to carry your surf board far. I opted for the package surf lessons included, which I think is worth it, even though surf conditions weren't always compliant, not always beginner waves, also, the water is fresh Full wetsuit required. Surf castle is the perfect place for solo travelers/couples and families alike. I went on my own, but met people from all over the world, and have made friends. I'll be back next year!
