 Situated in the Western Algarve, we’re blessed with two coastlines with endless options for beginners to advanced surfers. Our instructors surf these breaks daily and we pride ourselves in providing true surf safaris and aren’t limited to just one beach!

The west coast juts straight out into the Atlantic Ocean, picking up swell from an array of angles from different weather systems. With our local knowlegde we know the perfect uncrowded spot no matter the condition.

South Coast spots are just 5 minutes from our Lodge and are often overlooked in the hunt for perfect waves! Picking up strong south swells and on big days wrapping round from the west to provide dreamy long lines with not another surfer in sight! 

Here are 3 of our favourites!

Beginner

Protected from high cliffs either side, this beach offers shelter when the waves are too big or the wind is strong. There’s a real variety of waves on this long stretch, but mostly you’ll find fun sized waist to chest high A-frames. Ideal for long boarders too!

One of the Algarve's gems, this beach is well and truly off the beaten track. If you’re feeling adventurous, the break is always quiet and claims epic left and right pointbreak. In the middle of the beach you’ll have some serious fun on clean A-frames away from the crowds.

This beautiful right hand point break works well on big north westerly swells. The wave can be fun chest high to epic double overhead, with rippable walls and barrels. When the sand is right a fun A-frame opens up on the far left. Suitable for all levels surfers, but when it’s really on, it’s only for the brave.
