Looking to perfect that bottom turn? Or perhaps you’re a beginner in search of the perfect destination to catch your first real waves? The shores of the Algarve are ready and waiting. With a 200km to explore, the possibilities are endless for surfers of all kinds and abilities.

For the confident surfer, some of the best spots to visit include Arrifana Beach, Amado Beach and Ponta Ruiva. Over on the east side of the region, Praia de Altura in Castro Marim is a great spot for try-outs looking to find their balance on a board, in addition to Praia da Falésia, situated on the southern coastline.

With 300 days of sunshine throughout the year, clean waves in the summer season and spectacular natural beauty to admire from the water, there’s not much you can’t love. So, what are you waiting for? Wax your board and book your trip.
