The Atlantic Surf Lodges is a great surf camp. All the staff were very friendly and welcoming, the proprietors could not have done more to ensure we had a good holiday. The location of the camp in the National Park also added to its appeal for us. We are in our mid 40s with an 8 year old child and none of us had ever surfed but at no point did we feel out of place. The surf was good, the lessons were good and we ended each day tired but happy.Matt -
We have just had a fabulous trip with Atlantic Surf riders. The atmosphere was very friendly and relaxed. Rene, Helen and their team ensured we had an awesome time. The coaches were superb with my two kids who improved in their surfing enormously and I even improved too. The food was excellent, especially the breakfasts which insured you were well fuelled for the days surfing. We are already looking forward to hopefully going back next year. Five stars from us!!Dan -
The two closest airports are Faro (108km) and Lisbon (244km)
From Faro: By bus (€1,50) from the airport to Faro in the order to get to the train station. From there you can use:
Option 1: trains run hourly to Lagos (1.5 hours/7€)
Option 2: by bus, by checking the bus connections on the link below (2 hours/5€)
We can then organise to pick you up from Lagos.
For direct Transfers you can book at Yor easy transfer
Its €97 for up to 4 people and €112 for up to 6 people, a private car from the airport to the camp.
Its also a good idea for families to rent a car, especially if you have teenagers, as you might like to go to the beach for the day when not surfing or go and explore Lagos or go to the Monchique for the day.
From Lisbon: Take a bus to Aljezur (3hours/17€)
We can then organise to pick you up in Aljezur.
