Destination

Surf camp with a perfect location for both surf and kitesurf

Foz do Arelho Surf Camp is located in Foz do Arelho, a quiet fisherman's town between the beach and the lagoon of Obidos. Few other surf camps in the region, between Peniche and Nazare, can be as close to a beach and a lagoon at the same time, as Foz do Arelho Surf Camp which makes it very flexible for both surfers and kite surfers.
 
The village of Foz do Arelho offers a laid back atmosphere flowing all year round, making this an ideal place for family vacations in Portugal. The surf camp works like a Guest House run by a friendly couple that will make sure everything is there for you. The surf camp is located in the village and a few minutes from the beach of Foz do Arelho and our favourite surf spots.

Foz do Arelho is about 30 kms far from Peniche, famous for hosting a stage of the ASP World Tour of Surfing every year, usually in October at Supertubes surf spot. 

The surf camp is also around 30 kms far from Nazare, another famous surf destination, due to its huge swells and for recording the biggest waves ever surfed in the world. Professional big wave riders such as Garret McNamaraCarlos Brule and Maya Gabeira have been challenging themselves in the waves of Nazare and claiming to surf waves of up to 30 meters!

Foz do Arelho is part of the Silver Coast of Portugal comprising the coastline from Peniche to Aveiro and is considered one of the best surf destinations in the world. In the case of Foz do Arelho Surf Camp, what makes it so special is the fact that you can combine surf and kite surf in the same surf holidays. Plus, Foz do Arelho also offers a lot of extra activities to do and it's very close to Obidos, an historical town full of entertainment options, thus a great choice for your surf trip to Portugal.
 
The surf camp is also very close to the natural lagoon of Obidos, popular for kite surfersSurfinn Surf Camps strongly recommends its guests to combine surf and kite surfing together during your surf holidays in Foz do Arelho, so that you can take the most out of the swell and wind conditions.
 
There is a wide range of waves to surf nearby, but also plenty of things to do and extra outdoor activities available like yoga, cycling, horse riding, snorkeling, diving and skydiving. If you're planning a sightseeing tour, just a few minutes driving you can tour the historical village of Obidos, a perfectly preserved medieval town surrounded by walls. Get lost in its narrow cobblestone streets and small squares plenty of beautiful whitewashed houses and old monuments on each corner.

In the past, Obidos was a leading merchant harbour until the 16th century, when river access to the sea was naturally shifted. This way, the town lost importance and its development ended, remaining pretty much the same ever since. Nowadays, the peaceful waters of the Obidos Lagoon have become one of the best surf spots in Portugal.
 
Places like Peniche and São Martinho do Porto are also well worth seeing. Talk to us and we'll arrange it for you. This great choice of sceneries and activities on this area assures you exciting surf holidays in Portugal.

Accommodation

Modern Surf House with nice Garden areas

Foz do Arelho Surf Camp with its surf and kitesurf school is located on a small fishing village a few minutes from the beach. The surf camp has amazing surroundings making it a great opportunity to escape the busy city life for some surf vacations in Portugal within a relaxing and cool atmosphere plenty of good vibes.
 
Back in the days, Foz do Arelho Surf Camp was a wine cellar that was converted and refurbished into a surf house and surf camp. The surf house offers 4 double and Twin rooms with private bathroom, a relaxing lounge, a dining room and a fully equipped kitchen. The refurbishment of the surf house brought together a blend between tradition and modern design features; a perfect combination that recreates the origins of the cellar and its new concept of surf house. The rooms of the surf house are located on the first floor offering twin beds and private bathrooms with colourful decoration. On the ground floor, surfers can chill out at the bar and terrace where breakfast is served daily.

At the surf camp you will be able to listen to music, watch TV and surf movies, enjoying time with other surfers and friends. The surf villa is fully equipped with cable TV, DVD player, stereo, kitchen, wood oven and a 400 sqm garden.
 
At the surf camp you'll find a cozy atmosphere granted by Martim and Catarina. The couple will make sure that you'll enjoy the most of your surf holidays in Portugal.
 
If you are worried to know what wetsuit to bring to Foz do Arelho, most likely the best answer would be a 3:2 in the summer and a 4:3 in the winter. However, you do not need to bring any wetsuit with you as the surf camp packages already include the necessary equipment for the surf lessons. If you are taking the Bed & Breakfast package, and you are willing to do free surfing in the nearby beaches of Foz do Arelho, Peniche or Nazare, then we recommend you to bring or rent the equipment at the surf camp. Alternatively you can always buy a new or second hand wetsuit and surf board in one of the closest surf shops.
 
The surf school has certified and professional monitors teaching surf lessons of at least 1.5 hours, who will give you all the instructions to start surfing or to improve your skills. You can learn how to surf with our introductory course, or take your surfing to the next level and book one of our multi-day courses. At Foz do Arelho Surf Camp we also cater for children surf holidays giving lessons from 4 years old to adults of all ages.

Ideal conditions for surf and kite

Foz do Arelho Surf Camp is just a few minutes away from the most popular and best surf spots in Portugal.  The beach breaks of Peniche, such as Supertubes, Praia do Norte, Belgas, Lagido or Baleal are located within half an hour distance from the surf camp. Peniche is probably the most flexible surf destination in Europe, offering beaches and surf spots facing west, north and south, meaning that there is always at least one surf spot offering perfect offshore conditions, which will be a great guarantee for your surf holidays in Portugal.
 
The local beach of Foz do Arelho, within walking distance from the surf house, is also a very good option as it's closer and usually less crowded than overall surf spots of Peniche.
This surf spot is one of the best spots for beginners that want to take the most of their initial surf lessons, learning the basics of surfing such as the take-off. Nevertheless, this is the beach where we grew up and it is definitely a great surf spot when is pumping, ideal for experienced surfers too.
 
Within 30 kms from the surf house, you find Nazare, offering also great waves, especially if you are a big wave rider and up to the challenge. Nazare has an undersea canyon 1 km off coast with a maximum depth of 5.000 meters and 230 kms long. The swell that reaches Nazare's canyon, creates big waves due to its morphology, and has been recorded to reach up to 30 meters from the lip to the base. The waves of Nazare became super famous worldwide after being surfed by surfers like Garrett McNamara, Carlos Brule, Kelly Slater and Maya Gabeira. Nevertheless, Nazare only offers these big waves during the winter time so if you prefer reasonable sized waves, then Nazare will also be a great option for you all year round. 
 
Close to the surf camp there is also the Obidos lagoon, which is the perfect place if you want to include kite surf on your surf holidays in Portugal. All these excellent natural conditions make Foz do Arelho one of the best places to practice surf and kite surf in Portugal.
 
Our surf instructors will make sure that you'll learn how to surf during your surf vacations in Portugal. No one returns home without surfing at least one wave! There are daily surf lessons for all levels from beginners to advanced levels. According to your surf experience, the instructor will take you to the best surf spot nearby. Lessons are scheduled each day depending on the tides, wind and swell to guarantee the best surf conditions and safety rules for the ideal surf trip to Portugal.

If you plan also to have a few kite surf lessons in Foz do Arelho, then Obidos' lagoon will provide perfect conditions as its approximately 1 meter deep almost everywhere. If you're an expert, we advise you to surf down the lagoon and hit the waves!
