Portugal is always worth a trip. From the capital Lisbon with its rich culture and the stunning landscapes to the most beautiful beaches on the coast. Our WaveSisters Surfcamp is located in Costa da Caparica with the longest stretch of beach near Lisbon and at its south end you find a natural protected area.
Costa Caparica is about 10km south from Lisbon just on other side of the river Tejo and it takes only 30min by bus from Lisbon.

Costa da Caparica
Costa da Caparica or now just called „Costa“ by the portugiese, is becoming more and more popular -not only by surfers- and is considered THE beach in Lisbon area. South of Costa, still the same beach, after 10km, the natural park „Arriba Fósssil da Costa da Caparica“ starts and has another 20km of beach and an unspoiled forest inland.
Best weather, perfect waves with relaxed athmosphere, plenty of space in stunning nature are all reasons for us to move our camp to Costa. The special flair of Costa also comes from the long promenade with plenty of cafes, bars and restaurants to have beautiful sunsets and chill outs.
There’s too much to tell about Lisbon to really start here. But we give you very quick overview: The city was built on seven hills. Capital of Portugal, rich in culture and sights. The oldest district, the "Alfama", with its little streets and places is home to the famous "Fado" bars. The "barrio alto" is the center for young people and full of little shops, restaurants and plenty of bars and night life. The "barrio baixa" the real centre of the city invites to stroll, shop and enjoy Portuguese traditions.
Our surfcamp is right next the beach from Costa da Caparica. „Costa“ like it’s called by the potugiese is just south of Lisbon on the other side of the river Tejo. Our house is for 8 WaveSisters with double bedrooms. It is equipped with 4 bedrooms, kitchen, bathroom, living room, mansard with chimney, terrace and garden with grill. Everybody will find space to chill out and share the experiences of the day. We can also enjoy the garden with the BQQ area or the terrace.
