Surf Camp Alentejo - Surf tuition and Surf Accommodation in South Portugal


The perfect holiday for single travelers, couples or groups of friends.


For the perfect surfing holiday in South/West Portugal come to our surf camp in Vila Nova de Milfontes... Perfect location, top accommodation, good waves, professional surf tuition, all in a chilled environment..

Alentejo is a long stretch of coastline, reaching from southern Lisbon down to the southern coast of Portugal. Though Alentejo isn't the most well know area to surf in Portugal, there are still many waves to be found, and expanses of unexplored beaches to trek. And best of all, those waves are mostly un-crowded.

Alentejo's coastline is the most "virgin" and well preserved stretch of Portugal's vast Atlantic coast (800 Km), mostly due to the fact the main motorway from Lisbon to the Algarve runs well inland thus leaving this area "free" of resorts and massive tourism!!!

Alentejo is extremely rich in local culture, awesome food (don't miss the deserts), real genuine and hospitable people, small typical towns and... 100km of un-crowded sandy beaches with plenty of waves... An experience you will never forget...
