The south of Portugal, the Algarve region, is a major tourist destination and August is the busiest time of the year. You will find it very difficult to secure accommodation at such short notice.

The best surfing spots are on the west coast but there are almost no hotels and it is a very remote region.

The area near Sagres may be suitable as there is some surfing there even in August, but there will be little or no space in the hotels.

For surfing and diving combination go to Sagres (Algarve) or close to Lisboa to Sesimbra (more diving than surfing).

Vila Nova de Milfontes on the west coast south of Lisbon is a possibility, though it will be busy in August with Portuguese holiday makers
