Simply put, the camp is awesome. Annika and Marc are genuinely nice and hearty hosts. Marc always seems to know the best spots for surfing. He is also a great chef. I highly recommend that you try the dinner at least once.
The rooms are large enough for a two-week-stay without feeling cramped.
The camp itself is very clean and comfortable.
Few things are more relaxing than relaxing in a hammock while waiting for dinner after a day of surfing.

I've spent four holidays there, the fifth in September and there are definitely more to come. Twice with friends, once alone and now twice with my partner. As long as you're a little open to meeting new people, this doesn't matter at all. I've always met amazing people and it was never easy to say goodbye. It is also not rare to meet someone twice there - and this means something for sure.

The hosts are super friendly and cordial. If you need something, you just got to ask. Whether it's a recommendation for a restaurant, activities like horseback riding or a detailed surf spot guide, they can help you for sure. Especially their experience which surf spots work in which conditions often goes further than what magicseaweed can provide - which I find extremely helpful. There are also two lovely dogs and a cute cat which definitely add to the place in many ways. There is also a quite nice tennis court, which I like to play on occasion - rackets are provided, as well as many other things like (good!) skateboards including ramps, basketball court, pool, etc...

One of the (many) highlights is definitely the food. While breakfast is already great, dinner is amazing. In some dishes there is always meat or fish, but they also take care of vegetarians and make something extra just for them, but I wouldn't know to much about that. All I know is that I never left the table unsatisfied let alone hungry, and I do eat a lot, especially when I'm surfing all day.

The rooms are clean and simple, but they have everything you need and you won't spend much time in them anyway. There are several common rooms with a pool table, books, a TV, an additional kitchen and they get upgraded from time to time.

At last some tips:
- They have good quality rental fibreglass surfboards for intermediate and advanced surfers too (Fatum)!
- If you're not booking a surf course (which includes transfer to the beach), you most likely want a rental car! The house is less than an hour drive from Faro airport. Many guests in the surfhouse have a rental, carsharing might be an option, but I would ask in advance.
- book dinner, it is late (9pm) but the evenings at the beach can be magical, thus it can be quite convenient and nothing tops coming back and get excited about Marc's feast.
- book plenty in advance. You might get lucky, but just to be sure...

Room Tip: Standard is two rooms sharing a bathroom, but you can book a room with a private one.

Second visit and it won't be the last. Great accommodation, lovely people running the place, the best food you can imagine and always nice people to meet. You'll get back with a couple of new friends guaranteed.

No matter if you're travelling alone, with your partner or friends you will enjoy yourself for sure! The perfect getaway in spring or autumn to grab some sun and dip in the sea.

Several great surfspots around and with the wide selection of gear in the camp, you're gonna be prepared for everything. ;-) On the way you can enjoy the picturesque scenery.

Get a flight to Faro (<1h drive) or Lisbon (3h drive), crab a rental and start enjoying the area.

Just got back and I'm already planning my next visit! ;-)
