0 out of 5

Cliff Surf Camp is the perfect place for those who love nature, surfing and authentic Portuguese culture. Our Surfcamp was born of the desire to share the passion for surfing, the ocean and the amazing country of Portugal with every open to minded person.

We have space for 27 guests per week, in 7 double rooms and 2 shared rooms with bunk beds – all with a private and new renovated bathroom.
All of our rooms are kept in a unique and stylish surf atmosphere. Most of our furniture is handmade by our team. All bedding and bath towels are provided. We want you to feel at home while staying with us! We are not one of those mass to tourist places – at our house, everyone will know your name and you will be part of the Cliff family in no time. Cliff is the perfect Surfhouse in Portugal.

Location

Cliff Surf House is located in Santa Cruz (Torres Vedras), 45min north of Lisboa and far away from any kind of mass tourism. This lovely town has kept its local charm and protected the local culture.

During the summer there is always something going on in Santa Cruz: Events, shows, night markets, festivals, sunset long boarding sessions and of course parties. Oh, and you shouldn’t miss the Festa da Póvoa, the yearly village fair with dinner, games, live music and „bailarico“ (dances).

Dear Cliff Team,
Thanks a lot for your hospitality and care. You’re really like a family and we felt like warm-welcomed guests in your home. We must highlight the delicious food and chill vibes in the air. Surf lessons were mind blowing and we’ve never experienced anything like that before!

This amazing uncrowded coastline between Santa Cruz to Praia da Areia Branca offers many beach breaks and reefs. With beach breaks in each town suitable for learning and many off the beaten track waves along the coastline it is a great place to explore without the concern for large crowds.

Santa Cruz beach break gets good swell and waves are great on small to medium west swells. It can get crowded in the summer months but you only have to walk five minutes to find a peak that is quieter.

Praia da Areia Branca gets consistent surf and can work at any time of the year. Works best in offshore winds and best around low tide when the tide is falling. Even when there are waves, it's not likely to be crowded. Take care of urchins and rocks.

Don't forget to explore the towns of Peniche and Ericeira
