Surfers paradise Algarve
The west coast of Portugal has perfect waves for everyone - no matter whether beginners or pros. This is why the world's best big wave surfers find their way to the western end of Europe every year.
Our surf camp is located between Arrifana and Monte Clerigo.
But these are only two spots ... here are our favorites:
Arrifana is probably the most famous spot in the South Algarve. This is also shown by the fact that the spot is bespattered by many surfers. The beach lies beautiful between steep cliffs. In spring and autumn, when the waves are larger, Arrifana offers good surfing conditions for all abilities. During summer other beaches offer better conditions.
Just north of Arrifana is the beautiful large sandy beach and picturesque place Monte Clerigo. As the beach is a bit more exposed, there are waves for surfing all year round. Because of the vastness there is always a good sandbank for the surf course. On the beach itself there are some nice bars for a cozy break from the lessons.
