A glimpse inside Surf Camp Algarve

Southern Portugal’s stunning Algarve region combines visually stunning landscapes with great waves both along the west & southern coast. Surf Lodge Algarve sits in the heart of a giant nature reserve where you have easy access to both coasts, and when you’re not out surfing, you get to enjoy an extremely comfortable lodge where you have the options of finding a quiet corner to relax, or meeting and mingling with other guests in one of the many communal areas.

  • Peaceful setting for a relaxing surf trip to the most beautiful region in Portugal
  • Great, consistent surf due to access to two coastlines
  • Plenty of various accommodation options to cater to every traveller & budget
  • Communal nights around the BBQ enjoying great food, and a cold drink
  • Pool Table, lounge and TV to keep you entertained on cooler nights
  • Central pool area with terrace & plenty of space to chill
  • Every surfer catered to with the team offering beginner & advanced surf courses as well as surf guiding
  • Go on a horse trek through the nature reserve, organised by the team onsite

Surf Lodge Algarve is a trusted partner of Pure Surf Camps who have been mediating surf trips to this stunning location since the camp was grounded. The tour operator, Funride – Animação Turistica, Unipessoal LDA, are friendly locals to the Algarve, so not only do they know the surf spots, but also every other activity and sight that’s worth checking out in the region.

The camps location means that when you are not taking part in one of the two daily surf sessions, you can easily take a stroll down to Raposeira and check out the local town, go for a horse trek, or relax either at the local beach, in the nature reserve, or in one of the many spots on offer at the lodge. In the winter, where the temperature rarely drops below 15°C, you can spend the time not out surfing and evenings inside, playing PlayStation, watching a movie or just sitting around the fireplace in the central house.

The whole team at Surf Lodge Algarve love to surf, and love the ocean, and regardless if you have never touched a surfboard before, or already feel confident, the crew will make sure you’re surfing improves exponentially and you have a great time out in the water.

Raposeira
The Surf Lodge is located on the outskirts of a small town called Raposeira which is only a short distance away from both the south and western coast of Portugal. The village has a small but great selection of local cafés and restaurants that you can discover by exploring the small streets and alleyways that evoke typical Portuguese flair.

Near the camp, and Raposeira, you have the larger towns of Sagres & Lagos where you have more options in terms of cafés and restaurants, but also you can party, sightsee and shop for not only souvenirs but also surf equipment.

Sagres Trips
A great spot to explore, either in your rental car, or with the team on one of the many outings is Sagres. Some highlights are the lighthouse at Cabo de São Vicente, which is known locally as the edge of the world, you also have a huge harbour and waterfront promenade.

In Sagres, the closest town to the Surf Lodge, you have great shopping in small well-stocked surf shops, amazing restaurants that serve fresh seafood and fun bars and nightclubs where you can easily party until the sun comes up.

Boat tours available in Sagres are popular and show you a different perspective to the area surrounding the camp. If you go during the right season you can also partake in a dolphin watching tour. Some other highlights are watching the sunset while standing on the most south-western point of Europe at Cabo de São Vicente by the lighthouse, walking around the old fort or just exploring the harbour.

The courses always starts the day after you arrive at the lodge, and run for 5 consecutive days.

Price from October to June: 200 € for 5 days, 2 sessions per day.
Price from July to September: 225 € for 5 days, 2 sessions per day.

Morning spot check

The fact that you get access to two coastlines while staying at Surf Lodge Algarve opens up endless possibilities to surf perfect waves in a massive variety of conditions. There are waves for every skill level from mellow beach breaks that are nice and sheltered when the swell gets big, to long, heavy point breaks that break on shallow rock reefs, perfect to get the barrel of your life

Finding your way around the Algarve coast, especially when you are looking for a particular type of wave, can get very stressful as knowing the right tide, in conjunction with swell and wind is nearly impossible for someone who isn’t a local. This is why the team at Surf Lodge Algarve have chosen to give you the option of Surf Guiding to take the stress out of finding the waves.

The team are local, they know the spots, and the conditions and are more than happy to pass on their local knowledge and get you the waves of your life.

With the 4x4 you also get access to waves that not even many locals can get too so not only do you get to surf perfect waves, you get to surf perfect empty waves. We recommend bringing your own board and wetsuit if you plan to take part in the guiding, but you can also rent equipment upon arrival.

There are also more surf shops & schools who rent boards down on Amando Beach if you want a larger selection.

Horse riding on the beach

Linda is more than willing to share her passion for horses and horse trekking with the guests by offering custom horse treks to suit your skill set. She can take you through the neighbouring National Park of Costa Vincentina where you get in touch with nature and see not only stunning landscapes, but breath-taking ocean views.

Riding isn’t as easy as just sitting and pointing the horse in the right direction, it requires a fair amount of core strength and balance which work hand in hand with what is required when you’re out on a surfboard.

Horse riding is however a very relaxing past time and once you get the hang of it you will feel your mind clearing and yourself really becoming one with the horse and your surroundings.

The prices: 25 € for 45 minutes / 40 € - 80 € for 80 Minutes – 3.5 hours

Arrivals

Finding Flights (FAO)

We offer an extra service where we will find you a cheap, available flight. We’ll double-check the prices and availability and will contact you with the final offer. Cheap flights are available starting from as little as 80 Euro! Best option is to fly directly to Faro (FAO) and then book an airport transfer. Another option is flying into Lisbon (LIS).

For those of you who would rather find and book flights yourself we recommend Skyscanner which will give you a good overview of the available flights and where they depart from. An alternative is Kayak. These two flight search sites look through all airlines apart from RyanAir

Cheap Airlines from the UK:
RyanAir and Easyjet provide cheap and easy ways to get to Faro, Portugal from most airports in and around all major centres in the UK.

Our service

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.

Rental Car

We recommend renting a car! In Portugal there are very cheap rental cars available that start at 80€ per week. At Sunny Cars you'll find the cheapest rental cars around! Getting a rental car will allow you to spontaneously explore the coastline. It will also give you the freedom to take early morning drives up the coast to go to your favourite surf spot and be first in the water.

Directions

From Faro to Surf Camp Algarve? From the airport drive in the direction of Albufeira / Portimao then onto the A22 heading towards Lagos. Once in Lagos change onto the N 125 in the direction Vila do Bispo / Sagres. In Raposeira drive straight ahead at the trafic lights and after 100 meters turn right. Drive 250 meters up the hill and YOU MADE IT!!! To Surf Camp Algarve
