I stayed a week in this hostel, and did surf lessons there. It was very good experience. All people were friendly and tried to help and tip about all questions I had. Hostel itself in a good condition, cozy, and located well. Surf lessons were also great. Thanks to the teachers Bruno and Fabio. I will definitely go again!

I spent one week there, the staff is simply amazing, friendly, caring, they know the area really well, and make sure you always have a good time, the surf instructors are awesome, and they'll take you the best surf spot around if the neighbouring beach doesn't have the best waves. The monday welcoming BBQ is great, and the breakfasts are... More

I... More

This was the best holiday I've had in years, even though it was only a week. I planned a week to Portugal at the last minute and didn't know what surf school to visit. I was recommended this place from someone who's been coming to Surfivor for years and it was not a mistake. The surf guides, Eduardo and Luis,... More

Great place to stay for surfing and for beach vacation. A location where you feel such a friendly, natural atmosphere like beeing at home. Waves are good. The ocean and the beaches are clean and not crowded. So every surfer will have a perfect vacation..
