Full description
Experience the impressive waves of the Atlantic Ocean on a half-day or full-day surf adventure from Lisbon, and discover some of the most beautiful white sand beaches and surf spots for beginners or advanced surfers just 10 to 30 minutes’ drive from the city center.

Get to surf some of the coolest hidden spots with a local surfer. Transfer from Lisbon Zoo, enjoying views of the rich coastline and its varied elements along the way. See deserted beaches and uncrowded waves. Go to the Costa da Caparica, where the Tejo River (River Tagus) flows into the ocean. A place of unique natural heritage, the fossil cliffs of Caparica are a “Protected Landscape.”

Carved by the fury of the waves and elements of erosion, the coastline receives swells of all kinds. It’s a consistent surf area, offering a variety of waves for all levels of surfing experience. Surf with different sized boards, depending on your skill set. Try different shapes, and discover the most suitable board for you.

Totally recommend trying out the surf lessons!!! We had an amazing time surfing for the very first time. We were kinda nervous, but as soon as we got in the water it was all gone :) The instructors Filipe and Nunu (really sorry, I hope that’s how it’s written) were really great! They taught us the basic skills, took great care of us in the water, were excited when we managed to stand up for the very first time and were a lot of fun to be around :) You made our experience so much better, a big thanks to you two !! :)

Even in December an amazing experience! With a group of three we learned the basics for surfing and got into the water pretty quickly! Waves were amazing and our teacher Filipe was very helpful at guiding us when to paddle and to stand up. He also had a GoPro to capture some moments for all of us which is very nice! I learned a lot not only about surfing but Lisbon and Portugal too! 100% recommend this activity with Filipe! I had the best time!

We had so much fun! Filipe is very friendly and patient, he taught us some good moves and had fewer great tipps for us beginners. He was completely on time, which we really appreciated. All in one, an amazing day activity and a must-do if you‘re interested in surfing in the area of Lisbon! Would recommend and come for sure!
