The Madeira Surf Camp is located in the center of the small village of Porto da Cruz, the surfing capital of Madeira Island. The town is surrounded by black sand beaches, ideal to learn how to surf. Our main goal is to ensure that all customers get that unique feeling, from surfing the great waves our island has to offer. The Surf Camp has private and shared rooms, a panoramic terrace with barbecue area, fully equipped kitchen, laundry, cable TV and free internet access. Since the Surf Camp is located in a rural area, there are nearby levada walks, trails for cross country or downhill biking and many other adventure activities.In the village there are several restaurants and bars where you can taste the traditional Madeiran cuisine and beverages. The beaches and all basic services are in walking distance from the Surf Camp, such as post office, healthcare center, bank, taxi, supermarket...The Madeira Surf Camp is 15 km from the International Airport.

Madeira may not spring to mind as an obvious surf destination. However, for a fun day out and a change from other activities on Madeira, this is recommended. The guys are great instructors.
