Tiny Whale Surf and Kite Lodge offers one of the widest ranges of accommodation in Portugal for surf, kite surf and activity holidays, all available in one place. From the luxury holidays at the beachfront studios and apartments, the fantastic value camping facilities, to the legendary friendly vibe and flexibility of our surf accommodation at our surf camp, we really do have all the options covered. Resting in the laid back traditional Portuguese fishing village of Luz, the Tiny Whale Surf and Kite Lodge accommodation is perfect for holiday makers who want to keep their options open. On the one hand Luz is the ideal place to sit and unwind over a beer watching the sunset into the sea at one of the many beach bars or ocean fronted terraces. And on the other hand, we're only a stones throw from the bustling vibrant town of Lagos with its lively bars, marina and tourist attractions. We think we have the perfect mix of both worlds, with a taxi ride to all the nightlife, bars, clubs, and party atmosphere that Lagos has to offer. Both feature all the amenities you'd expect close at hand like supermarkets, medical facilities, spa's, and a wide range of shops, restaurants, bars and cafe's for every budget.
