NORTH

What makes the north of Portugal so special? Climate? Waves? Beach and reef breaks? Many surfers underestimate the top class surf spots in the north of Portugal. The beaches around the cities of Porto and Figueira da Foz offer world class surfing conditions. There are numerous good beach breaks for all surf levels. The waves are more constant than in the south and the spots are less crowded. On the rather too hot summer days of over 30 degrees around Lisbon or in the Algarve, the slightly cooler water and air temperatures in northern Portugal are another clear advantage.

North of Figuera da Foz at Cabo Mondego you will find one of the longest rigthander in Europe. On the coast of Buarcos and further north, a variety of surf spots await you, including Esmoriz, Praia de Quiaios, Cabedelo, Praia de Mira, Costa Nova and Praia da Barra. Porto also has other surf spots close to the city and offers a rich culture.

LISBON & SURROUNDINGS

The area is known for its constant waves that roll all year round. No wonder that the only World Surfing Reserve in Europe is located here, more precisely in Ericeira, less than 50 km north-west of Lisbon. Here, the surf spots are all close to each other. Beach breaks and reef breaks make the area interesting for every surfer, whether beginner or pro. Surf contests and festivals take place all year round. The World Surf League makes a stop in Peniche, WQS and national surf contests take place in Ericeira and the ISA European Surfing Championships are held in Santa Cruz at the same time as the Ocean Spirit Festival. Besides the world class surf there is still a lot to discover. The Sintra National Park, about 145 square kilometres in size, is a must-see.

ALENTEJO

This still widely undiscovered surfing area in Portugal offers you beach breaks as well as reef breaks. As the coast of Alentejo cannot yet be found on every surfer’s map, you will find fewer tourists and surfers in and out of the water. This gives you the advantage to enjoy the line-up with only a few people and to be able to fully concentrate on your surfing. Not quite as constant as the region around Lisbon, Alentejo still offers very good surfing conditions for every level. Advanced surfers and pros should come here especially from September to May when the autumn and winter swells arrive on the Portuguese coast. The surf spots on the Alentejo coast have a wide swell window and almost always deliver surfable waves. In addition, the climate is much warmer than in the north of Portugal.
