Situated in the middle of greenery, you can come down here and relax. Only 3 minutes away from the beach.
Our climb and surf camp in Portugal is a professional camp for adults. Our surf & climbing courses take place from Monday to Friday.

After all, we want you to spend an unforgettable holiday with us in Portugal. Our goal is to give you a unique stay and to inspire you for new adventure sports.
