I've been to this place on multiple occasions, great experience both times! Good value/price ratio, SUPER-FRIENDLY AND HELPFUL STAFF! Apart from the fact that there are dorms and shared bathrooms as one of the available accommodation options, it doesn't really resemble a hostel. More like a camp for adults: a holiday house on the beach, where you share your experience of surfing, exploring, dining, tanning with a versatile group of people. The crowd is always pretty mixed nationality-wise, and almost everybody who have ever been there returns!
In addition to the surf lessons and surf guiding (huge stack of surfboards and wetsuits available) they've got bikes and longboards for the guests to use, and they offer yoga lessons and massages if there's an interest.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Surf Camp is situated in a two story house directly opposite Foz do Lizandro beach. With the beach only stones throw away there is no excuse to not to spend the entire day on the sand, lying around, swimming in the sea, playing beach volleyball, football or other things and of course surfing. Whether you are a beginner or you surfed since you were 6, Ericeira is one of the most consistent summer surf destinations in Europe. With beautiful beach breaks for beginners as well as Portugal´s hollowest point breaks and reefs - there is something for everyone and all within a 10 minutes drive. ... more less
