Surfing in the Algarve
On the corner of the Iberian peninsular, the Western Algarve is not only blessed with some of Europe's most beautiful beaches and mildest climates, it also juts straight out into the atlantic ocean picking up swell from an array of angles from different weather systems. This makes for a very good chance of having waves to surf every day on your surf holiday. In fact we're so confident you'll have waves on your surf holiday that if it's flat we'll refund your surfing for that day!
Also the area benefits from having a south and west coastline, and being able to travel between these in a short space of time gives surfers a great chance of finding the the right swell with the right wind direction making highly consistent surf conditions that compete hands down with anywhere else in europe. Almost guaranteed waves even in summer, uncrowded lineups and conditions to suit the absolute beginner or a seasoned surfer, the Western Algarve has it all.
