Watermark Surf House- Esmoriz
Reviews (1)
5 out of 5

Our surf house in Esmoriz is located within a 150 meters walk from the beach and close to the forest reservoir. It saves some of the 50s architecture lines as very typical portuguese ceramic tiles. The house was built to fit its surroundings – a relaxed and confortable space with practical rooms (3 double/twin shared bedrooms and a shared bathroom) and a fully equipped kitchen. Also the surf house has a big backyard in which you can enjoy a drink, bbq or simply relax at the sun.
Surf lessons, guiding & equipment is all available on site, as well as yoga and massage.

How did you like the accommodation?

     

I love it! Very nice house in traditional Portugues style. Huge garden with a cosy lounge corner. Perfext for relaxing. The house is equipped with everything you need (kitchen and the like). A nice café and a great bakery are round the corner. And it's just a 5 min walk to the ocean.

Many thanks to my hosts Ricardo and Rui! We immediately became friends - I'd love to come again to Esmoriz!

Level: All Levels

There are various peaks along this coastline: point breaks and beach breaks, making it accessible to all surfers. There are only a few local surfers, unique landscapes and quality waves. Surfing changes according to the tides ans wind, so make sure you got that covered.
In 2013 it was considered by the Evening Times (online version, 15th of August 2013) the second World’s Best Surfing Destination, right after Oahu (Haway) and before places like California (USA), Durban (S.Africa), etc.
This region, like Espinho, is so close to Porto, with a fast and easy train access, it's the perfect opportunity to get get a feeling from this lovely city and a relaxed surfing vacation.

The best time to surf Porto is between Spring through to Autumn. It's main surf beach is Matosinhos beach, the best surf spot in Porto for beginner and intermediates. Its a long 1km sandy beach with a few different points on it. The set up is a mix of beach break and reef break and parts of it are sheltered so it handles larger swell. Easy to get to and consistent.

Next to Matosinhos is International Beach. A lovely spot that begins where the city park ends. Its also a great learner spot, and a great place to hang out both during day and at night. Further north is Leca, a very consistent beach break protected by the harbour.

In and around the city there are small little beaches all worth exploring, particularly for the more advanced surfers wanting to discover the best Porto surf breaks.

There are more surf breaks further south including Barra do Porto and Miramar and then 20km south of Porto are the towns of Esphino and Esmoriz. Its arguably the North's most famous surf area and the beaches have a real nice surf culture. The area's 3 main beaches are Silvade, beach, Blue beach and Baia beach. A mix of sandy beach breaks and reef spots that suit beginner and advanced. Hang around and score some long barreling right & left handers all to yourself.
