Our Surf camp is based in Ericeira, Portugal. This beautiful seaside town became in 2011, the first World Surf Reserve in Europe, second in the world. A place praised for 8 km of shoreline brimming with world-class surf spots, and one of the most preserved surf-havens on the planet. Every year, people from around the world meet here, choosing Magikvanilla as their Surf Holiday destination. The Magik Team genuinely get a buzz out of making people happy and that is why this Surf Camp was created. A dream that becomes reality in 2013, after the owners Steve & Susie quit their steady jobs and followed their passion: hosting people and spreading the love for surfing. Their goal at heart is to create long-lasting powerful memories so that when you’re about 85, you’ll still remember your stay at Magik. That would mean the job was done.
Since the opening in 2013, Magikvanilla consistently achieved outstanding traveller reviews, with 92% top ratings. And from the second season on, it has been continuously awarded the Trip Advisor's Certificate of Excellence for providing an exceptional experience. In 2019 it was awarded the Trip Advisors Travellers’ Choice Award thanks to the outstanding reviews of the guests that continually choose Magikvanilla as their Summer Spot.
LOCATION AND SURF CONDITIONS
MagikVanilla sits in one of the few secluded properties in Ericeira. Right next to it, the community garden and a picnic park give it a feel of being surrounded by nature and sea. Within minutes, you can walk to different beaches or pop down the town centre. And you just need to go down the road to find a pharmacy, supermarket, restaurant and access to public transports (BUS)
The camp becomes a home away from home quite frequently, due to the laid back atmosphere and the welcome environment the owners and the team give. In the camp you can find a few common areas that you can use: the chill out areas both indoors and outdoors, the hammocks spread around the property, the billiard and football table and of course the pool so you can splash around. It is a spot that you can meet people easily and who knows? maybe even make friends for life;)

SURF COURSE DETAILS
We are lucky enough to be in Ericeira. The only World Surf Reserve in Europe and one of the most consistent spots on the North Atlantic coast. We have such a variety of waves, beaches, reef and point break, that you'll find perfect spots, regardless of your experience. Our instructors are stoked to share a bit of the silver coast experience with you. Apart from their personal experience all over the world, they have thousands of sea-hours, in class, with all learning levels but most importantly, they are credited by the Portuguese Surf Federation, the International Surf Association (L2) and all certified and experienced Lifeguards and first aiders to give you the best possible experience. Most people that come to our surf school have never surfed before, so if that is your case DON´T WORRY :) all of our instructors have vast experience in teaching beginner surfers how to safely learn the basic skills & to get you standing up on a surfboard & riding a wave!
After your surf lesson, you will be brought back to the Surf Camp, where you can simply chill use the sun-beds, TV, games, etc, you can go into town and explore the narrow streets and cool shops, restaurants and cafes, you can jump on a Bus and go to Lisbon or Sintra (two must-sees) or simply walk to one of the many beaches nearby.
If you are seeking for extra activities, there are a few options you can book on site: Yoga & Aerial Yoga Lessons, SUP (Stand-up-paddle) Sessions, Horse Riding, Massage, Wine Tasting Tours, join one of our organized trips on Thursdays to either Sintra, Lisbon or Óbidos (depending on numbers, time of the year & weather conditions) and/or rent equipment and hit the waves to make the most of your surfing time.
SURROUNDINGS / REGION
Activities and facilities
It is a small town, but full of life. Especially in the sunny seasons, when days and nights are warm and long-lasting. The centre is bubbling with people, street fairs, lovely shops and a great variety of bistros, cafes and terraces. The evening starts slow, with plenty of restaurants serving dinner until late, pubs, bars, folk parties and even a Club open until 6 am in the Summer. The sunsets are a must in this corner of the world and one of the many spots is the Quicksilver Boardriders Skatepark, just a 20 minutes walk from the camp, with a shop and bar where you can have a cocktail and say goodbye to the day as the sun sets.
We can provide airport transfers from and to Lisbon Airport. If you are part of a pack that includes airport transfers all we need from you is your flight details (flight number and arrival time) both arrival and departure and one of our staff will be there to pick you up on a time arranged, but in case your pack doesn't include transfers you can book a transfer with us please check our page Getting Here.
