Santa Cruz is an old quiet village, 1 hour north of Lisbon, between the surf towns of Ericeira and Peniche. This beach break is known for its beautiful scenary. The coast offers some of the most powerful waves around the country and the swell is consistent all year round, making it an easy choice for surf lessons in Portugal.
Its beach and point breaks receive strong Atlantic Ocean swells working better on mid tides. The best conditions occur when East winds blow offshore with west swells.
Santa Cruz Surf School helds its surf lessons at Praia do Mirante, 2 min away from Santa Cruz Beach Surf Hostel. Mirante Beach is centrally located in Santa Cruz offering great landscape, surrounded by high rocky cliffs.
Our beginner surf lessons are for anyone who wants to learn how to surf in a safe and encouraging atmosphere.
