The Moby Dick Lodge Surf House is located in a small town on the southwestern slopes of Sintra Mountain: Malveira da Serra, Cascais. Malveira da Serra, Cascais, is an old village that still keeps most of its own ways of living. Traditional feast during August is well known. There is a supermarket, a pharmacy, an atm, and several restaurants in the surrouding area of the Lodge(walking distance). The best way to get to the Lodge is to have your own car or transportation. Alternatively we can provide transport to the places you want to go. If you want you can use the bus or get a taxi from Cascais Train Station. The train to Lisbon takes about 25 min

On the foothill of the Sintra mountain, Malveira da Serra, Cascais, is stuck between the beach and the mountain. It's a perfect spot to combine watersports with trekking and mountain biking. Just at a short distance from the cliffs of the western tip of continental Europe, Cabo da Roca, and the Guincho beach, a haven for surfing, windsurfing and kitesurfing, Malveira da Serra, Cascais, is the perfect starting point for some days of sports, chilling and great fun combined.

Sintra and Cascais, two of the most iconic towns in the Lisbon area, are both within a 10km radius and, between the Lodge and them, an amazing natural park with luxuriant vegetation, monumental architecture and bright sandy beaches.

The Place

A typical Portuguese summer house converted into a surf house, in a quiet village surrounded by the beautiful Sintra mountains and really close to several beaches with prefect waves for surfing.
The house can accommodate up to 20 guests in 7 splendid private rooms, with closets and private bathrooms.

The Moby Dick Lodge Surf House Cascais has two lovely patios for sun bathing, reading or for your children to play. Feel free to use both of them whenever you'd like. We can also provide surf lessons and surf trips to Ericeira (1h), Peniche (1.30h) or Nazare (2h), as well as bike rentals.

Get information about Lisbon nightlife, best places to eat, etc... We can even organise it for you or just let you know where to go every night.

All we want is for you to feel at home at the Moby Dick Lodge Surf House, in the middle of Sintra-Cascais Natural Park. Whether when you're eating in our dining room, lounging in the living room, or sun bathing outside. You can rent the whole space or one of the 7 rooms and meet other people.

How did you like the accommodation?


The accommodation was excellent, I had my own room and it was absolutley fabulous. The staff at Moby Dick are so friendly and caring and are always available for assistance, advice and chats. The food was amazing and I really loved the yoga lessons, thank you so much. I did the tour too, well worth it if you have time. The house is amazing and there are lots of places inside and outside to chill and relax. Marianne, and all the family members, are so kind, genuine and really do make you feel at home. Phenomenal levels of hospitality !! Thank you so much guys, I had THE best surf holiday experience ever. Can't wait for Pedro's book :-) In the words of a fellow surfer when I was there, "I'll be back" Stay safe and see you next year guys.

Travelled with friends

How did you like the accommodation?


My friend and I stayed in a private room and it was very nice! Just what we needed, black out shutters to also help secure the room on the ground floor. We did have a struggle to close the bathroom door haha! But as it was just my friend and I we weren’t too fussed.

How did you like the surf lessons?


Caetano, Diogo, Miguel and another younger lad were fantastic coaches. They truly kept an eye out for all surfers. They were progressing everyone to their individual levels which was perfect! I really progressed from beginner to intermediate with the help of the coaches!
