Our location is a boutique hotel and surf school which stands proud on the cliffs of the Peniche peninsula overlooking one of Europe's most beautiful and consistent surf spots.

In short, we are an old-style surf camp with added comfort, style and sophistication. A place you can enjoy even on those rare days the surf is down. A place where you can bring a non-surfing partner or kids without fear that they get stir-crazy or bored.

All bedrooms have uninterrupted views of the coastline, and our lounge has four floor to ceiling windows that look out onto Lagide, the famous reef break right on our back yard.

The atmosphere in the Surfastle is that of warmth and cosiness throughout all our relaxing chillout areas. Our lounge is the perfect place to watch the surf endlessly from any angle, be it standing on the terrace, or relaxing on the comfortable sofas.

We have a variety of outdoor areas for you to enjoy during your stay at the Surfcastle. Our garden is ideal for football, surf warm ups or yoga and our terraces always catch the sun regardless of the wind direction.

We take huge pride in providing a friendly atmosphere, and there is always someone at the main house should you require our help.

Levels: Beginner; Intermediate & Advanced.

The surf school as been working since 2007 bringing unique surf experiences to all our trainees.

We take into account both physical and technical characteristics of each surfer who comes to our academy, giving tailored and personalised coaching.

All our teachers are very experienced surfers and have been approved by the FPS - Federação Portuguesa de Surf (Portuguese Surf Federation).// STUDENT CENTRIC

We only have a maximum of 6 trainees per teacher, allowing us to offer a much more intimate and focussed surf school service compared with other local schools. We feel strongly that every trainee is different and requires equal attention out in the water.


Our coaches see every wave of each student and will monitor progress closely, giving advice and feedback at the beach and also in the water, as well as filming you while you surf to offer feedback in the comfort of the Surfcastle lounge.


We use the best materials and our teachers are highly qualified in order to provide our guests with the best surfing experience. The equipment selected for you will closely match your surfing ability, and we'll always make sure your progression matches the gear you take out.


We have unrivalled knowledge of the local surf spots, being pioneers in surf coaching in this reigon. Rather than stick to a rigid timetable, you can rely on your coach to take you to the ideal surf spot for your lesson every day, or even twice a day.


Our surf coaches will often take video of you, and after the session we will analyze and correct your surfing in the comfort of the Surfcastle lounge (an image is worth a thousand words).
