Learn to surf, catch great waves & relax in the Algarve
The relaxing atmosphere, unbeatable natural setting, and the odd wild party evening, as well as the amazing surf, make this a camp you can’t look past. The various types of freshly renovated accommodation can cater to every visitor’s desires.
The manager of the camp was born in the area with, it seems, a surfboard attached. He knows the coast, as well as inland regions, like the back of his hand and manages to find surf conditions to suit every level surfer, 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 of around one and a half hours per lesson, meaning you’ll get your first experience of standing up soon enough.
Options for the afternoons are endless and can be spent going for walks to nearby Raposeira, going on nature horse rides through the adjacent parks and beaches, skating the new mini ramp, doing yoga courses with qualified instructors or even getting massaged. In the evenings you can hang in the communal areas and play pool, head to Sagres with your new friends, or just relax and check out the countless stars. In the colder months, from November to May, where the temperature rarely gets as low as 15°C.

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 nature 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, which takes most guests through to the wee morning hours and beyond.
Whether you are after a bit more peace and quiet and choose one of the more secluded wood bungalows, or after more of a party atmosphere and stay in the dorm in the main house. There is accommodation to suit every guest.
Surf Camp Algarve is located 2 minutes on foot away from the village of Raposeira where you can find two typical Portuguese cafes and beautiful passageways with original architecture that are definitely worth checking out. The surf camp is located in southern Portugal and is close to the main surf spots, only taking 5 minutes to get to the southern coast, and 10 minutes to the west. The main building and the wooden bungalows are located within the National Park of Costa Vincentina which provides a breath taking views. Sagres and Lagos are also nearby, as is the Surf Lodge in Ingrina.
For everyone that doesn’t want to book a rental car we will gladly organise a shuttle to pick you up from Faro airport and take you directly to Surf Camp Algarve. The shuttle costs 85€ per trip and takes about 60 minutes. If you make your own way to Lagos with the bus or train we can pick you up there as well for 25€ per trip to the camp. It is very important to send us an email with you’re exact arrival times and flight number so we can organise the shuttle correctly.
Another option is to take a public shuttle bus to Raposeira, and walk the few minutes to the camp. You can pre-book this through www.faroshuttlebus.com. This does of course take a lot longer because it stops frequently. If you are booking this option, enter Sagres as your final destination, then tell the driver you’d like to get out in Raposeria.
