Surf for beginners to intermediates

The Western Algarve has some serious surf!


If it is gentle white water rollers, hollow beach breakers or thumping reef breaks are your thing, the Western Algarve offers it all. 

Facing the Atlantic and its powerful winds creating fabulous weather all year round, the Algarve coastline offers a range of surfing experiences to accommodate all levels of expertise. For the novice surfer there is a generous array of surf schools in the peak seasons. For hard-core surfers an off peak holiday break is ideal as the waves are bigger and the beaches are clearer.

Surf schools provide all the gear from the wetsuit, board rentals and instructors with local knowledge for getting the best experience in the Algarve.

Just 10 minutes from our accommodation in Luz & Espiche are the best surf spots on the South West coast. It is not just the waves that draw the surfers to Lagos and Sagres but the laid-back and friendly atmosphere attracts people worldwide.

The Algarve is a year round destination for surfers but Autumn through to Spring is really the perfect period especially October to December for the best swells. The hot Summer days in the Algarve bring long flat spells and hoards of families to the beaches.
