SURF CLIMB Portugal
Shared & Private room options
The Saltyway house, a typical Portuguese ‘Moradia’, is perfectly located between the waves and the mountains. Whether you’re here to surf or climb you will be right in the heart of the action.
The house is beautifully situated off the beaten track, right in the heart of nature in Colares near Lisbon. We enjoy the tranquility of the Serra 24/7, a silent nights’ sleep and early surf wake ups with the birds. We light up a fire in the living room at night and enjoy the cosy atmosphere of this big room with the big windows. The kitchen offer all you need to make a good meal.
What’s more, we are just a short walk (12 minutes) and a breathtaking descent down to Praia Grande, via a set of steps famed for its prehistoric dinosaur footprints. The house is also situated between Almocageme and Praia das Maças. Both are small picturesque Portuguese villages with a range of restaurants, bars, small shops and cheap local markets (a great place to buy your week’s supply of fresh fruit and vegetables).

PRAIA GRANDE & PRAIA PEQUENA, SINTRA
Or ‘big beach’ and ‘little beach’ as they translate in English, are swell magnets and some of Portugal’s most consistent beach breaks. Fortunately for us the Surf House is set back in the hills overlooking these impressive beaches. Praia Grande is a 1km long sandy beach that produces super fun lefts and rights all along the beach, a perfect surf spot beginners in the summer. Praia Grande boasts a number of great cafes and restaurants to kick back and relax in with a coffee whilst watching the action unfold in the water.
In contrast, Praia Pequena has a completely different set up and mellower vibe. It is a small cove with restricted access and a crowd that rarely exceeds ten guys. This beach is known for it’s playful wedgy right and left hand peaks. It’s a great place to escape to when Praia Grande is busy.
Level: All Levels
Guincho, a stunning 800m beach located at the foot of the Sintra mountains and surrounded by rolling sand dunes and the turquoise blue of the Atlantic. It’s a pleasure just being there let alone surfing there. Fortunately for you it’s one of the most consistent spots in the area so there’s a good chance you will get to appreciate its beauty and ride the super fun waves. The waves predominantly break to the left at the Southern end of the beach, while in the middle of the bay produces bowly rights and lefts. On the Northern end you will find more relaxed rights.
Level: All Levels
Regarded by most as the birthplace of Portuguese surfing and famed for it’s iconic 16th century military fort that proudly sits at the Sourthern end of the beach. This 1km sandy beach produces excellent peaky, punchy and barreling waves through all tides. It is a good option when the wind is Northerly and the West coast is too big. When this place is good, it is so much fun to surf whatever your level.
Surf conditions in Sintra:
Air Temp (°C)
Sintra's two main beaches are Praia das Macas and Praia Grande. Both are perfect beginner/intermediate beaches and are some of the most consistent surf beaches in the whole Lisbon-Sintra area. North and South of these beaches are many small coves and beautiful hidden beaches that provide any exploring surfer with plenty to get excited about!
Close by is Praia Guincho, a spectacular long beach with different peaks, perfect for learning and can get big and windy in the afternoon, so morning is always the best bet here.
Ericeira is only 30 minutes drive and is definitely worth a day trip at least, it has dozens of surf beaches to offer including the famous point break Ribeira D'Ilhas and also the relaibale beach break Foz do Lizandro.
Further South is Cascais and Lisbon with an endless supply of different surf beaches for all standards.
