PORTUGAL: 5 SPOTS FOR FAMILY SURFING

By: Emeline TANTALIDES

Portugal has always been a leading surfing destination in Europe. Its dream landscapes, its mild climate all year round, its historic waves and its warm inhabitants are significant assets for this country of a thousand and one wonders.

For a few weeks now, our friends have been asking us for tips for cool and local surfing. And when we love, our greatest happiness is to share; here are our family spots to surf and discover Portugal from north to south!

Spot #1 : NAZARE / OBIDOS

Nazare is THE surf spot for professionals and a pleasant fishing village.

The sunset over Praia Norte is a must. We love the mix of genres with peroxidized blond surfers who meet the wives of fishermen with 7 petticoats.

Nearby, we recommend you to stay at Casa tudo bem in Obidos one of the most beautiful villages in Portugal.

Whether you are a beginner or not, you can learn to surf at Baleal Surf Camp.

For those who want a 100% surf and skate sport holiday, you can go move to Noah Surf House.

The Costa da Caparica is located just 15km south of Lisbon, a beautiful wild coast of 30 kilometers.

The best way to relax on the Costa da Caparica is to rent one of the old fishermen's cabin in front of the ocean, like the Beach Cabana Branca or the Cabana Azul. You will find all the cabins available for rent on Airbnb.

The waves are perfect for even beginner surfers, take your surf lessons to the Outside Surf project.

You can also go to Lisbon to walk around in the center or visit us at Casa Saudade.
