Portugal

Portugal is perhaps the best country in Europe to visit if you’re a surfer thanks to its enviable climate, great variety of waves and the almost endless amount of surf camps and surf schools for you to choose from. Portugal is blessed by the Atlantic swell along its 900 km of coastline. Amazing nature, full of point breaks, reefs, and beach breaks makes Portugal a perfect destination for your surf trip.

Peniche, Ericeira, Lisbon, Madeira, Nazaré, Arrifana… Jump on your surfboard and enjoy surfing in Portugal! It also enjoys a rich and illustrious surfing history dating back to the 1920s, during which time “bodyboarders” were filmed riding breaking waves to shore off the coast near Porto. This footage of people surfing in Portugal is now thought to be the oldest surf film in European history.

Fast-forward to the modern era and Portugal is one of the surfiest countries in the world, with a number of high profile surfers such as Nic von Rupp and Carol Henrique, west and south facing coastlines and a reasonable cost of living relative to the rest of the continent.

All of which adds up to make Portugal a veritable playground for surfers from Europe and around the world. Scroll down and discover our validated surfing destinations below…
