Reviews (5)
5 out of 5

Since the 70's, travelers from all over the world have been passing Praia da Tocha. There are a couple of enjoyable bars and restaurants, 3 small supermarkets, ATM and a traditional market (Jun to Sep) with local products and souvenirs.

Our surfhouse is located 200 meters from the beach, in a central position and offers:
Self service equipped kitchen
Dormrooms to linen included
Double rooms to linen included
Big living room with fireplace
Free internet WI to FI
Garden to relax outside with a chill out zone and hammocks
BBQ in the garden for some fun grill sessions
Entertainment: TV, games, guitar

Location

The area we are situated in is located in the region of Beira Litoral, which is part of the famous Silver Coast (between Porto and Lisbon).

It has this name because of the silver shinning reflex of the sun on the ocean.

As implicit in the name, this beautiful area of mellow temperatures, white sandy beaches and amazing landscapes is considered one of the most beautiful places on the planet.

How did you like the accommodation?

     

If you are looking for chilled place somewhere close to the cost surrounded by pine trees but still in the middle of nowhere, you are right at ticket2surf. We stayed there 5 days in october and had really great time with brian and claudia, the owner of the hostel. They are very friendly and helped us with everything. We really enjoyed the nice atmosphere which claudia and brian created.

The rooms are very clean and there is a lot of space to hang around indoor (living room) and outdoor. Outdoor you have some seats and benches, a big table and some hammocks. indoor you find a Tv, magazines/ books, sofas and big table, and the most other stuff like games and so on. The kitchen is well equipped and every thing you need is there, if not: Claudia and Brian will help you :) All rooms are decorated individual with a lot of love and details in it.

All in all we love to stay at ticket2surf and would like to come back as soon as possible. If you are looking for a nice place to chill, surf and have a great time, we can totally recommended this place!

It was a great experience to stay at Ticket2surf in Praia da Tocha with Claudia en Brian! The vibe at the hostel is soooooo good, you feel at home immediately. Everything is just so relaxt, kitchen is very well equiped, location is perfect near the beach and market with fresh food every day :-) There are a couple of nice priced restaurants with typical food and a great bar down the road with beer for 1€!

I will be back here for sure, fell in love with the place completely.


How were the surf lessons?

     

Most importantly the waves are great for surfing. Brian teaches surfing in a nice way and Claudia does beautiful yoga sessions.

How did you like the accommodation?

     

Ticket2Surf hostel is a great accommodation to chill. The hosts are super friendly (a Dutch Surfer who speaks fluently Portuguese, English and I suppose also German and his Portuguese wife who does Yoga-lessons). The boardwalk and beach are less then a 1 minute walk outside the door to the left. Porto is a 1 hr drive, Figuera da Foz 20 minutes and the historical city of Coimbra 30 minutes. The hostel has a chill-out backyard facing South with a part with trees to hang your hammock and a big frontyard. Of course there is a BBQ to use! Surf is great, almost always a wave to surf. When it gets to big in Tocha, you can drive to Figuera (Buarcos or Cabedela) and charge the world class surf. Though a hostel, also recommendable to families who do not want to camp and who don't expect all-in. Your kids are gonna love it! Brian will teach them to surf!!! I'll be back for sure!! Patrick

How did you like the accommodation?

     

I stayed with Ticket2surf for 5 days and had 3 days of surf guiding as I could already surf (kind of). Brian and Claudia are amazingly welcoming and made me feel like part of the family. The accommodation is homely and welcoming and the "chill out garden" is perfect when not surfing. Lots of local bars and restaurants with great cheap food, and you have full use of the kitchen if you prefer to cook for yourself. All in all I will be going back as soon as possible :) ciao


How were the surf lessons?

     

Each day Brian took me to the best surf conditions and I caught some of my top ten waves with him. His local knowledge and experience is priceless if you want to make your trip worthwhile and at a very reasonable price.

Praia da Tocha

Praia da Tocha

Level: All Levels

The closest surf spot to our surfhouse is Praia de Tocha and is a two minute walk from our location. This beach break, for all surf levels, starts to work with less than 3 ft (1 meter) swell, and is the place to be! If it´s flat here, it´s flat everywhere!

Buarcos

Buarcos

Level: Intermediate

A long, high quality right point that is more of a carving wave than a tube riding experience. It needs to be at over a meter (4ft) to wake up and it holds a decent swell. Rides can be several hundred meters long. It’s not badly damaged by north winds and is surprisingly quiet. It´s called the European J to Bay!

Cabedelo

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 W or NW swell. The main peak can be challenging sometimes but there are plenty of other peaks for beginners.

Praia de Mira

Praia de Mira

Level: All Levels

Sandbar waves that hold little swell. High tide is better and offers steeper shore break style waves whereas at low tide the waves mush out on sandbars a hundred meters offshore.
