SURFING HOLIDAYS IN THE ALGARVE, PORTUGAL

Learn to surf, SURF CAMPS, surf clinics & SURFARIS - Algarve

The Algarve was, and to a certain extent, still is, one of Europe's sun blessed and empty surf paradises. There are more sunshine hours here than anywhere else in Portugal and even in January warm, sunny days are common. This is a bit of a catch 22 situation as the empty surf and excellent weather have turned some parts of the Algarve into soulless resorts pandering to package tourist hordes from across the continent. Thankfully this type of development is focussed largely in the Eastern Algarve and this is not where you will be surfing. Surfing in the Western Algarve means sun, waves, easy access through Faro airport, beautiful Mediterranean scenery and the thrill of discovery as you bounce down a dusty track to a hidden pointbreak.

THE SURF

The Algarve receives waves all year round and for beginners there are always suitable waves to be found. For more experienced surfers autumn, winter and spring are the best seasons, the surf is consistent, the weather better than the north of the country and the tourist chaos of the summer is largely forgotten.

LAGOS

On big swells you'll surf the beaches just to the west of town, while on smaller days you're only a forty minute drive from the consistent west coast beaches.

SAGRES

Sagres is a great base for surfing as there are several beaches all working under different conditions within easy walking distance of the town center. There are waves here to suit surfers of all abilities from the sucky hollow and heavy waves of Beliche, to the mellower beachbreak of Tonel.

CARRAPATEIRA

Empty peaks can be surfed at Carrapateira's two main beaches. These beaches provide some of the most reliable surf conditions in the western Algarve and when it gets good they offer cracking surf.

ARRIFANA

This is the home of one of Portugal's premier big-wave spots. When it's on, the point is a spectacular wave to surf or watch. Big wave chargers only. The beachbreak is suitable for surfers of all abilities and holds waves up to 4-6 ft.

WHY THE WESTERN ALGARVE?

One of the big attractions of surfing in the Western Algarve is the incredible diversity of the waves and surfing locations. The beautiful beaches, steep cliffs, pleasant water temperature and waves that work under various conditions all make this area a great surf destination. The popular breaks get crowded when the surf is good, but there are literally dozens of uncrowded quality waves to be found with a little exploration. For more information on the Western Algarve please see our 'Destination Guide'.
