Surfing Portugal

Join us for surf lessons and day trips at some of Europe's best surf beaches
Book Your Adventure

Surfing in Portugal has to be one of the coolest activity experiences around. The country is made for surf, with consistent swells and great beaches in both of our locations of Lisbon & Cascais, or West Algarve. We offer surf-lessons for all levels, from beginner through to more advanced surfers who want to fine tune their skills with video analysis.

Surfing in West Algarve is the perfect choice if you want chilled out surf vibes in a remote location, with jaw-dropping landscapes – all set within the Costa Vicentina natural park. Lisbon has awesome surf close to the city towards Estoril & Cascais. Within 20-30 minutes by train or car you can be soaking up the Portuguese sun on sandy beaches and riding beautiful waves.

What an adventure. 50 staff in two groups over a week, I organised the trip with Heleen and everything was spot on. SUP, coasteering, sea kayaking, mountain biking and surfing. Coasteering was amazing, the best we have had and we do this every year. Cascais was a great location. Dan and Heleen were so cool and Nuno was a daily ray of sunshine for us all. I am very grateful for their care during our stay and returning us home with nothing more than bruising and muscle ache! We hope to see you again one day. Emma xxxread more

Just returned from a fantastic 5 days in Portugal with big blue adventures. Dan and Heleen were excellent hosts who greeted us at the airport, I instantly felt relaxed as everything was taken care of. The bed and breakfast Onda Vicentina was the perfect base for our group, surrounded by beautiful beaches and coastline. All of the activities were well organised and I absolutely loved the supping and surf lessons, hands down, the most exhilarating thing I’ve ever done. Our trip was rounded off with a sunset hike and wine tasting, hosted by Michele and Flavia, a truly memorable experience.I can’t wait to book my next trip with Big blue adventures. Thanks guys, you rock!read more

10 of us went on an adventure holiday this November to Portugal with Big Blue...it was better than the best holiday i can even think of! Heleen and Dan are perfect hosts. They organised everything making for a seamless unforgettable experience. Paddleboarding and surfing were our main activities, both being new experiences for all of us. The instructors were great and catered for every level. Cant wait to book up another holiday with these lovely people, im totally hooked. If you want to try new activities, enjoy the outdoors and enjoy having fun with a group of people then Big Blue Adventures are the ones for the job 🙂read more

Why We Love This...

"Portugal is a great spot to progress as a surfer or learn for the first time. There are so many beautiful spots for surf that you are spoiled for choice. The vibes are relaxed and it feels like an endless summer, plus everyone seems to surf here. My perfect surf day ends with a cold beer and BBQ fish watching beautiful sunsets.”
