Portugal On Water Surf Lodge
Reviews (7)
5 out of 5

Unforgettable surf holidays in a modern and unique resort.

Portugal On Water Surf Lodge is located at Quinta D'Anta Hotel, in Figueira da Foz, is only a few minutes away from Cabedelo Beach, that usually is a less crowded spot and famous for its exceptional surfing conditions.

Built from an old farm, the property combines the tranquility of the rural environment with the comfort of a modern hotel. Besides the excellent conditions to surf all year round, you can also chill and have fun at the hotel… book a massage or just stay in our peaceful swimming pool area... it’s an amazing place. Otherwise we have plenty activities at hotel that you can explore... like stand up paddle, padel tennis or the mountain bike with GPS tracking.

If the weather is good don’t forget to ask for our delicious and fun barbecues, you can’t miss it!!

Each room at this property is air conditioned and is equipped with a flat to screen television with cable channels. All rooms have a private bathroom. Free Wi to Fi is provided throughout the property (rooms, bars, restaurant, living rooms and outdoor areas) and if you drive a car we also have free private parking available.

Location

Our Surf Lodge is located in Maiorca, Figueira da Foz, close to the best surf coast of Europe. Is a great surf destination that works all year round and for all levels. If you are beginner or intermediate the best time is during spring to autumn.

For all levels the best and most famous spot is Cabedelo. It has excellent right wedges off the side of a long jetty and results in fast and hollow waves, is a very consistent and fun spot to surf. A little bit to south there is also Cova Gala, a beach break spot for all levels that often offer lefts and rights.

Buarcos is home to three different spots advised for more experienced surfers, Tamagueira, a hollow right to hand point break, Teimoso, one of the longest waves in Europa, and Mina, a fun reef break section that breaks on bigger days.

If you’ve never surfed here, you've been missing out… come and you will easily fall in love for this little paradise.

Jump to the city... If you miss people, want a night out or just want to know better Portuguese city culture we have 3 amazing cities around us where you can easily travel: Figueira da Foz (15 min away), Coimbra (35 min away) and Aveiro (45 min away).

How did you like the accommodation?

     

Hotel is fabulous. Great staff, great pool and brilliant Padel court. Rooms are nice with air con, great showers and nice beds.
Good is good. Lunch is not that well used so takes a little longer but dinners are good and it’s a nice atmosphere. Look out for solo travellers and invite them on your table, it’s worth it.
The beach is about 15 mins away. If you can, get a hire car, it adds a little bit of freedom which is good. Nazare is an hour away and worth a visit. I would say this is like a boutique hotel. Pedro the owner takes real pride in the place and actively ensures everyone is enjoying themselves without ever being over the top. All the staff are excellent.


How were the surf lessons?

     

Lessons are good. Obviously depends on the conditions a lot. Sometimes the group can be a little large to cater for the differing skill levels. That said they do their best to keep an eye on everyone and seek out those who are trying hard. Very good!

TOP!! L'endroit est superbe, le personnel est extrêmement chaleureux, on est accueillis comme de la famille ou des amis. Les cours de surf et yoga sont extras, les professeurs attentifs et qui nous portent, le tout avec humour! Le point majeur de ce séjour est vraiment l'accueil humain et le bien être ressenti. Bref, une expérience inoubliable ! Je ne serai pas sans y retourner !

The hotel itself is a little paradise on hearth: green open spaces, amazing swimming pool, great facilities (both bed & shower were so difficult to leave because too good!). I was waking up every morning, having my coffee while sitting outside in the porch surrended just by the sounds of birds..isn't just the perfect way to start your day? I can't thank everyone enough to have made my holiday so special, Samuel, Nuno & Nuno, Rui, Juan, Patricia, Sara, Ana, Lisa (she can cook the most amazing homemade Portugues food you'll ever have!), everybody made me feel like home since day one!
Both my yoga & surf experience were just amazing! Being a total beginner on both activities my primary concern was not to have enough time to get the hang of it at least a little. But both Leonor (yoga) and Marcos (surf) were just incredibly patience and supporting, and never gave up on me. Leonor taught me how to listen to my body more, take more care of it on differrent levels, and how through practice and perseverance I can reach result that I never taught possible in such a small time! And surfing with Marcos was just as rewarding!

This was my best experience so far with surf camps. This is a perfect place to learn how to surf and to develop your skills. The instructor is very attentive and always provides you with a feedback. You have one instructor per 4 people. Every evening you have a possibility to see you surfing on a screen (photos) that is very useful for the analysis of mistakes. The personnel is very attentive and nice. Food and wine is just amazing. I really recommend this place.

Figueira da Foz it's a kind of a secret paradise of surf in Portugal, because there are not so many crowds but offers very consistent waves all year round.
The surf spots still hold a natural beauty and offer different possibilities, point break, after point break, filled with long and fun right-handers, as well as many fun beach breaks. The most famous is Praia do Cabedelo.

Main Surf Beach: Praia do Cabedelo, Figueira da Foz

Praia do cabedelo

Praia do cabedelo

Level: All Levels

Just to the south of Figueira town and an ex to WCT contest site. This excellent right wedges off the side of a long jetty and results in fast and hollow waves. NW winds are funneled offshore and it works best on a NW swell and incoming tide.

Buarcos

Buarcos

Level: Advanced

Quality right to hand pointbreak that holds a decent swell. It produces really long workable walls, with several surf spots along the coast.
There is also a surfable beach break here.
