Surfing the South Western corner of the Algarve is similar to surfing a peninsula. The Algarve´s South-Western corner roughly boasts 20 beaches, all in a 30 minute drive. Reefs, points, bowling beach breaks, blue skies, no crowds, warm blue waters make the Algarve a true surfers heaven in all conditions.
Our apartments and the live in surf camp are located on our private property on the Algarve West coast, right in the middle of Costa Vicentina nature reserve, 1 1/2 mile behind the Ocean cliffs. The place is surrounded by cork trees, eucalypts and bamboo. Private, remote, and without any streetlight, bar, shop or restaurant in walking distance.
