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!

What a wonderful week we've had in this special place! It’s truly delightful to meet such great people from all around the world who share the same passion for surfing, good food and relaxing in a great environment. Thanks to João, Pedro and the crew at Surfcastle for making our stay such a memorable one. The special little excursion from Pedro's beach to get on the outside was a real treat! The welcome barbeque which happened appropriately on day 5 was such a lovely night - excellent barbeque fish and sardines, and of course, the excellent surf lessons and varieties of conditions made it a surf camp. I'd definitely recommend to friends and come back, too!!! Thanks again for a fabulous surfing week holiday in Portugal!

What a treat! We've seen a lot of cool stuff over the last 14 months driving up from South Africa, but your awesome house powered by the passion of surfing has to be some of the coolest. Like the retro Ford transit parked outside, may you keep running strong for a long time to come! A real honor to include the Surfcastle as one of the places to stay on our AfricanSurfer project, thanks a lot!

A dream castle for surfers and bodyboarders, where the sun shines even in February. Great waves, great food, great ambiance and amazing hospitality! Many thanks for letting us enter your kingdom, especially room number 1 of your kingdom!
Every time I was walking by the Surfcastle, I thought that one day I was going to spend my holidays in this fantastic house. Last month, I visited your place and this made me decide to book my holidays! This weekend was amazing! The Yoga sessions in the Surfcastle living room with the sun rays warmed my back. The concert from project Almagreira was simply unforgettable. The company was great and I woudln´t have asked for anything else. I promise to come back some day in this summer! A big kiss for everybody in the Surfcasle
