Sunset across sea at Monte Velho, Portugal

Surfing on the Costa Vicentina

Portugal is ideal for a weekend getaway and you can combine surfing with horse riding, biking and hiking, and enjoy a restorative massage in the evening.
The so-called “Costa Vicentina”, the western coast of the Algarve stretches over more than 60 km from Cape St.Vincent, the south-western most corner of the European continent, to Odeceixe on the Algarve-Alentejo border.

We recommend staying at Monte Velho, a charming, colourful converted farmhouse about a mile from the ocean, nestling on a hill in a National Park.  This is wild, unspoilt Portugal, and the beaches are incredible.

The rugged rocks of the steep coastline are interrupted by small sandy bays. The climate is slightly harsher than other parts of the Algarve but still gorgeous from Spring to Autumn.  The surging swell from the Atlantic is spectacular, and lures surfers from far and wide.

We can tailor make the perfect long or short haul break for you that focuses on surfing or combines surfing with a selection of other activities and adventures.  Tell us what you would like to do, and we will organise everything for you.

Find out more about everything else you can enjoy when staying at Monte Velho, our gorgeous boho-chic coastal farmhouse on the wild west coast of Portugal.
