Summary

The village of Porto da Cruz is located on the north coast of Madeira Island, between the mountains and the Atlantic Ocean. The beaches in Porto da Cruz are especially suitable for beginner surfers, as they are the only ones with volcanic black sand with surfable waves.

Madeira Surf Camp is surrounded by banana plantations, vineyards, yet it is only 15 km from the International Airport and 30 km from the center of Funchal. The village of Porto da Cruz still preserves its traditions, with a relaxed lifestyle and a very hospitable local culture. The beach and all necessary services are just a few meters from the Surf Camp.

Being located in a rural area, there are several outdoor activities that you can do, such as canyoning, trail running, mountain biking, paragliding, fishing, go-karting, among others.
The village has several restaurants where you can try the regional gastronomy, such as fresh fish, seafood and other traditional dishes from Madeiran cuisine, as well as wines and spirits. On the island of Madeira there are almost no crowds, in fact there are not many local surfers. The north coast has the most consistency and exposure to the North Atlantic ripples and the widest range of waves and to the various levels of surfing.

The island offers a vast amount of waves just minutes away, from long, soft waves suited to beginners to extreme surfing conditions for "big wave riders".
