Welcome to Odeceixe Surf School

Surf School Algarve PortugalThe southwest coast of Portugal is a surfer’s paradise. The unbroken waves rolling in from the Atlantic are perfect for training ones/your surfing skills. The school is located on Odeceixe beach where classes are held.

Surf lessons last 2h30m/3h. Everything is always organized, if possible in advance with the surf instructors.
Our instructors are local surfers certified by the Portuguese Surfing Federation, all of whom have lifeguard licenses and a huge knowledge of the region’s beaches and its conditions.

The classes are made with a maximum of 8 students per instructor. Instructions are given in English or Portuguese.

Conditions are perfect for beginners because the sandbanks and the small waves in the white water provides comfortable and safe surfing conditions. After a few lessons you should be able to stand up on your board and in time you’ll be confident enough to go outside (surf in the ‘green’water, further into the sea) with your instructor.


Odeceixe beach

Odeceixe beach has many waves on the ocean side, perfect for surfers and body boarders. This peaceful beach smells of rock roses. The top of the stone stairs is a perfect spot to watch the sunset and the landscape. The river Seixe in the middle of the sand sets the border between the Alentejo and the Algarve.

Amoreira beach

This beach lies at the mouth of the River of Aljezur, which forms a lagoon system of great natural beauty. Along the river you can walk through the sand dunes or hide from the wind. At low tide, small pools are formed in the sand, which are a lot of fun for children.

Arrifana beach

This beach lies in a beautiful shell-shaped cove, sheltered from the cold north wind. There is a small group of fishing boats and the beach is long and narrow, being bordered by high black cliffs. Arrifana is a popular beach among surfers and body boarders.

Monte Clerigo beach

At Monte Clerigo beach you can swim in the various natural pools that form amongst the rocks and are revealed as the tide goes out. Inland are some impressive sand dunes, lying on either side of the beautiful valley. There is a fabulous panoramic view to be enjoyed as you walk down to the beach.
