ABOUT THE SURF CAMP


LOCATION AND SURF CONDITIONS



Praia das Maças Surf Hotel is located a few kilometers from Lisbon, in a small village (Praia das Maçãs) encircled by the cheerfull nature of Sintra-Cascais Natural Park.



In the village centre, just 30 metres from the beach, where you will find nearby restaurants, bars, clubs and a supermarket. At the hotel’s entrance you will find a bus and train stop, and a few metres away a tennis court, football field, and praia das Maças swimming pools. All you need for an unbeatable holiday!

Praia das Maças is actually one of the better beachbreaks in the Lisbon area and certainly one of the most consistent. When it’s good, wedgy, powerful lefts break off the cliffs at the northern end. Mid-low tide on a NW swell is better. There are many great beaches for surfing around Lisbon. If you are looking for different waves then you can easily walk from the Surf camp to Praia Grande and Praia Pequeña, and if you travel a little further north or south you will find Ericeira or Guincho, and the beautifull Estoril Coast beaches. You will allways come across a pumping surfspot.

You can go sightseeing in Sintra’s many beautifull tracks, or take the mini train just outside the Surfcamp that will take you to the city centre!
You can get a bus, train or taxi and go to Lisbon to party. There are many good night clubs, museums, and plenty of things to visit in downtown Lisbon.

 


CAMP CHARACTER



The Surfcamp is located directly at the surfspots and we are a nice peaceful and quiete camp for relaxing for the whole family. We are surounded by a beautiful landscape, organize tours and provide a restaurant inside of the camp.
