Kanalu Surfhouse
Reviews (3)
4 out of 5

The surf house is located in a beautiful villa right in the Natural Park of the São Vicentino coast, just 5 to 10 minutes walk from Arrifana beach. The max. number of guests is 16. We cultivate a relaxed approach, that everyone feels good and comfortable in our surfhouse.

There are several double and multi to bedded rooms, bathrooms, a living room and a large communal kitchen with all kitchen appliances. There is also a second covered outdoor kitchen in the garden which is also fully equipped. The house is divided into two floors, which can be rented completely for groups or families.

Location

The Kanalu Surfhouse in the Algarve is located in a villa in the beautiful natural park of the São Vicentino coast, just a few minutes walk from the sea. In our well to tended garden with view into the nature park you can relax after surfing and enjoy a drink at sunset with sea view. Perfect conditions and location for the surf vacation.

In addition to surfing and beaches, there are various typical Portuguese villages with good restaurants and bars. Those who want to experience something in the evening can stay in various bars with live music or in the nearby town of Aljezur. Lagos with its beautiful old town is just 25 minutes away. In the area there are various cultural festivals and attractions.

The surfhouse management is happy to give you tips on the area and events of the region or can help you translate Portuguese. It also offers a variety of other activities such as surf, yoga, massages, deep sea fishing, boat tours and horseback riding.

Your surfing holiday will be unforgettable...Surfing everyday!

How did you like the accommodation?

     

Really nice and clean place with a great garden with several chill-areas. It's just about 5 min. to walk to the beach. There are some Bars and Restaurants in walking distance. Great place for your surf holidays


How were the surf lessons?

     

We booked some beginner lessons straight with the owner at the house. We were in a small group with a very good instructor.

How did you like the accommodation?

     

Super bad communication with the guest 2/3 days for an answer to an email/ whatsapp message . No Wi-Fi , no room cleaning , no new linen in 10 days stay. The guest is not friendly at all especially in the morning. The house is not 500 meters from the beach . At least is almost 1500 meters far.
A cock will wake you up every morning at 6 am.
Overpriced . Not recommended.

Alberto was a very anti social person. We had many barbecue nights and surf sessions with all the guests in the house, but he never joined for nothing. I think Alberto is not a person for a surf house or surf camp. We have Wifi, we clean rooms and our house is 500 m from the beach. Please leave you anger to somewhere else if you are unhappy! We had a great week! Thanks

This area of Portugal is a year round surf destination and has the warmest sea water in the country. In the summer months you can surf in just shorts or a shortie and it doesn't get dark until 10pm so you can surf all day long! The coastline is part of the protected natural park with 50 kilometres of protected beaches with no large towns or high rise tourist accommodations. Instead you will discover beautiful pristine beaches and small traditional towns a far cry from the main overrun Algarve tourist spots.

Amado beach is the areas best beginner/intermediate surf beach and a great starting point. Amado is surrounded by many other great surf breaks with options for all standards. Praia da Cordoama is one of the most picturesque beaches in Portugal, a long stretch of sand protected by cliffs, a great intermediate spot. Praia do Castelejo beside it is even more consistent.

There's a dozen beaches further north all worth exploring including Arrifana & Amoreira, two very consistent beginner/intermediate beach breaks.

Furthest south is the laid back surf town of Sagres. The beaches East of Sagres such as Zavial & Martinhal are usually calm and require a big swell to work, they are a great alternative if the surf on the beaches on the West coast are too big. There are many hidden spots around Sagres some of which will require an SUV to get too but are well worth it especially for the more experienced.
