It is well known that common interests weld together. In the SaltyWay Surfcamp in Portugal nature lovers like surfers and climbers meet and experience a nice holiday together. An essential part of your active holiday is being together in a group. We believe that life together forms a strong bond – not only during, but also after the time at SaltyWay. That is why we encourage our guests to shop and cook together. We provide you with a kitchen and a living area. In fact, we definitely had the best evenings in recent years when we cooked and ate together and then shared stories about the adventures of the day over a few glasses of wine.
During your holiday week you can explore the area on your own. There are many beautiful sights, dreamy villages and beautiful nature. You can take walks or hikes on the cliffs or in the mountains.
The beautiful landscape offers a wonderful backdrop. We can also provide you with one of our bicycles. There is a bus service to Sintra right outside our front door. There you will find several castles/world heritage sites, an art museum and numerous shops and cafés.
The SaltyWay Surfcamp is located in Praia das Maças, a small and fine village. Here you will find everything you need. You can walk in the hinterland through pine forests or enjoy the sunset on the beach.
After Azenhas is a real Portuguese beach village. The picturesque village is only a walk away from our SaltWay surf camp. You walk along a breathtakingly beautiful path right along the coast. In Azenhas do Mar you will find natural swimming pools and the best ice in the area.
The golden sandy beach, the crystal clear water, the high cliffs and the night silence at the Praia Grande will blow you away. Here you can do not only great surfing but also beautiful hikes on the cliffs. On the beach there are many cosy bars and restaurants.
Almoçageme is a picturesque farmer and fishing village. Here you can get the best chocolate cake in the region and buy regional organic products at affordable prices at the weekly market. Only a short walk from the centre you will find Praia d’Adraga.
England’s Sunday Times counts this beach as one of the 20 best beaches in Europe. In this idyllic rugged bay you’ll find an excellent fish restaurant. Tip from us: Try the fish soup.
Sintra is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The fairytale city is known for its romantic 19th century architecture. Sintra has long been a refuge for the nobility and elite of Portugal. Today, the mountainous and wooded terrain is home to magnificent palaces, extravagant villas and beautiful ornamental gardens. This charming city is only a short drive from our climbing and surfing camp in Portugal and is the ideal place for culture lovers. Our insider tip: Take a camera because the view is breathtaking. Also a few coins for a ‘queijada’, a delicious cake – a Sintra speciality.
Here the sun shines about 239 days a year. This makes Lisbon the sunniest capital of Europe. You can enjoy the Mediterranean climate, the unique light, sweet pastries, the typical white cobblestones, fado music, the café culture and the famous yellow trams. Lisbon stretches over seven hills and is known for its strategically built vantage points (Miradouros). They offer breathtaking views of the city’s pastel-coloured buildings, the iconic “Suspension Bridge of 25 April” and the River Tagus.
