WHAT TO EXPECT FROM OUR SURFCAMP

Surf Camp Algarve is located in a wonderful nature reserve in Southern Portugal with access to the best surf spots on both the West and South coast. This is the perfect camp to surf, meet people, socialise, or just chill by the pool.

  • Chilled surf camp with pool, garden, mini ramp and BBQ all surrounded by the stunning Portuguese wilderness
  • Room options include the main house, bungalows and ‘Sheddies’ to suit your taste and budget
  • Spend social evenings at the famous weekly BBQ or partying in nearby Sagres
  • Surf Courses and guiding with experienced locals to the best spots in the region
  • Book a day trip to Sagres and Lagos or ride horses through the wonderful landscape of the Algarve
The relaxing atmosphere, unbeatable natural setting, unforgettable party evenings as well as the amazing surf make it a camp you can’t overlook. The various types of accommodation can cater to every visitor’s desires. Whether you are after a bit more peace and quiet and choose one of the more secluded wooden bungalows, or after more of a party atmosphere and stay in the dorm in the main house. There is accommodation to suit every guest and what they are looking for.

The Surfcamp Algarve is run by a surfer who has grown up here with lots of knowledge about the entire coast. A team of local surfers with extensive experience in surf coaching is working here. Whether you are doing your first day or being guided to the biggest and heaviest spots on the coast. Each surf course consists of two lessons per day around one and a half hours per lesson so you will be standing up and riding your first green waves in no time!

Options for the afternoons are endless and can be spent going for walks to nearby Raposeira, skating the mini ramp, doing yoga courses with qualified instructors or even getting a massage. In the evenings you can hang out in the communal areas and play pool, head to Sagres with your new friends, or just relax and check out the countless stars. There are over 300 days of sunshine per year making the Algarve an ideal destination to escape those cold winter months at home.

The surf camp is centred around a main villa which is fully equipped with Satellite TV, lots of surf films and Wi-Fi. The villa is situated atop a hill with an amazing view of the surrounding natural reserve making it perfect for relaxing after a successful day in the surf. There is also the famous weekly BBQ at the camp which more often than not leads to some serious partying at the bars and clubs in nearby Sagres. Most guests are discovering the night life until the wee morning hours and beyond but you can also have a peaceful evening at camp. The off-season, from November to May, is just as attractive as the summer: empty beaches and surfspots are just two advantages at this time. All year round the Algarve is happy about almost 300 Sunny days! In the colder season, which are not often below 15 ° C in the Algarve, the surf house offers a cozy underfloor heating system.

Accomodation

The double rooms have their own modern bathrooms with newly fitted rain showers. Both options also offer a relaxing view over the neighboring natural reserve making them the perfect place to retreat and recuperate after a long day's surf.

Additionally, there are two cozy wooden bungalows in our garden that also sleep 2 people equipped with their own small bathrooms.

The dorms have also been freshly renovated and each have their own bathroom with a 4 or 6 bed room option. There is also the possibility of staying in beautiful wooden bungalows in our garden.

These provide a more relaxed and private experience away from the main house, while offering a tranquil view overlooking the horse paddock.

Surf Camp Algarve also now has the option of choosing a Sheddy, which is a comfortable wooden hut with a 1.5m double bed that sleeps two. The height is 2m, so there is enough space to comfortably stand up, as well as space underneath the bed to store gear and surf equipment. You can also upgrade to our Sheddy Deluxe version (more info below)

The Sheddies are the perfect choice for those of you looking for comfortable accommodation at an unbeatable price. You can also book a Sheddie by yourself for a small extra fee. If you decide to come in the cooler months, it is advised to bring a sleeping bag. For the Sheddies you have two shared bathrooms, one for men, and one for women with 2 showers and 2 toilets in each. If you want to book a surf course and you decided to sleep in a Sheddie you get a 25€ rebate off of your surf course.

Sheddie Deluxe
We also have a new addition to the Surf Camp - The Deluxe Sheddie. This new addition to the camp is a larger version of the original Sheddie and comes with plenty of storage space as well as two single beds. These Deluxe Sheddies are perfect for friends & couples who are looking for a budget friendly surf trip where you still get your own private space to retreat to.

At Surf Camp Algarve, not only are there double rooms and dorm rooms located in the house but also stand-alone bungalows that border the horse paddock. Additionally, we have the newly built Sheddies for an unbeatable price.

A part of any travel experience are the friends you make along the way and we have perfect communal areas to meet your next travel buddy. If you are chilling in the living room, watching surf movies with our Satellite TV, or shooting some billiard, outside catching some sun rays next to the pool, in the garden, or enjoying a relaxing afternoon in our hammocks you are bound to come across a friendly face and make a new friend.
