The Algarve to many is seen as a place to relax on a beach and chill out but it also has some of the best surf in Europe and even gets summer swells which are great for learning how to surf. Situated on the southern western tip of Europe it offers many type of waves for all different times of the year and has some great beach breaks from Arrifana to Faro.
On the southern western tip is the small town of Sagres which offers many options for both the the advanced surfer and the beginner and everyone in-beween. There are lots of Sagres surf camps and surf schools that offer lessons and equipment rental for all and in the quieter more sheltered beaches there is SUP on offer. Lots of these schools and camps also base themselves out of Sagres and travel to many of the beaches we will mention.
It is easily accessible through Faro airport and has a diverse number of towns to stay in from quiet villages to bustling town of Lagos for the night owls. The Algarve is a great place to go on a surf holiday all year round as it offers sun, surf and a great vibe, be that in the towns, villages or deep in the amazing country side.
