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 quite close to nature.
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 Cascais. Whether when you're eating in our dining room, lounging in the living room, and sun bathing outside. You can rent the whole space or one of the 7 rooms and meet other people.
