This reviewer told us :

Das Camp selbst befindet sich am Ende eines sehr großen, portugiesischen Campingplatzes, der selbst sehr abgelegen liegt, aber Einrichtungen für den alltäglichen Bedarf anbietet (Restaurants, Bäcker, Supermarkt, Swimmingpool, Billiardbar, Basketballplatz usw). Das Surfcamp befindet sich inmitten von Pinienbäumen an direkter Steilküste mit Blick über einen km-langen Sandstrand (toller Sonnenuntergang !) Man schläft in Zelten bzw. Tippis, welche mit Matratzen ausgestattet sind. Je nach gebuchter Leistung verfügen die Tipis sogar über eine stylische Einrichtung von Mobiliar. Ansonsten gibt es noch diverse Tische mit Stühlen, ein paar Sofas und Sessel sowie Hängematten, eine Slackline, eine Tischtennsplatte und eine eine Miniramp im Camp. Ausgenommen vom Glamping-PLUS benutzt man die Santitäranlagen des Campingplatzes. Dafür muss man so 3 min / 300-400 m Fußweg einplanen. Wenn man viel trinkt und eine schwache Blase hat, ist das auf Dauer ein bisschen nervig, aber Schritte Sammeln ist ja gesund ;). Die Atmosphäre im Camp ist total entspannend und unaufgegezwungen, obwohl täglich wechselnde Aktivitäten angeboten werden. Als Beispiel sei neben Surfen und Yoga genannt: Müllsammeln am Strand, eigenes Skateboard gestalten, Brainstorming-Gruppen zu verschiedenen Themen/Projekten, JAM-Session, Ausreiten am Strand, Trip nach Lissabon usw. Also es werden wirklich super viele Aktivitäten angeboten, die total unaufgezwungen und inspirierend sind, die man so vielleicht woanders nichts geboten bekommt. Der einzige Nachteil ist, dass man manchmal (nicht immer), wenn man in Ruhe lesen oder quatschen möchte, zum Strand oder woanders hingehen musste, weil man immer beschallt wird. Sei es von der Hintergrundmusik oder der Beschallung der angebotenen Aktivität. Das Essen im Camp ist sehr gut. Ausgewogen, ohne viele Zusatzstoffe, größtenteils Vegan, wenig tierische Produkte und Fleisch. Das Angebot aufzuzählen würde den Rahmen sprengen. Das Frühstücksbuffet war nahezu täglich gleich, Mittags gab es immer einen erfrischendes Nudel/Couscous-Salat mit Brötchen und Olivenöl und Abends war Buffet, täglich wechselnd. Mal nach thailändische Art, mal nach libanesischer, portugisischer, italiniescher Art usw, Besonders zu empfehlen ist, dass Stilles Wasser rund um die Uhr zur Verfügung steht. Mein TIP: von ca. 18 Uhr Abends mit 10 Uhr Morgens ist es ziemlich frisch: Also besser 2 Hoodies und 2 Jogginghosen einpacken. Eventuell eine Mütze für nach dem Duschen


Der Spot ist nur wenige Hundert Meter entfernt (Berg ab). Es werden keine weiteren Spots angefahren. Das heißt je nach Swell, gibt es keine Ausweichmöglichkeiten und gegebenfalls hat man Pech und es sind keine Wellen zum Surfen vorhanden. Die Wellen sind nicht besonders hoch und brechen sehr schnell. Eher für Surfeinsteiger zu empfehlen (Weißwasser und Takoff Üben) oder für jene, die wirklich sehr schnell den Pop-off drauf haben. Freitags gab es eine Theoriestunde zum Thema Surfbedigungen und Surfausrüstung. Natürlich wird das Personal die Jahre wechseln, aber die drei Vortragshaltenden, die ich erlebt habe, haben die Theoriestunde unglaublich informativ und unterhaltsam gestaltet.

Other (e.g. Surroundings, Nightlife, etc.):

Ab 23:30 ist im Surfcamp strikte Ruhe angesagt. Aber man kann den Berg runter gehen und ist sofort an einer Beachbar.
