Surfing and surf lessonsin the Algarve
Surfing is a popular sport in the Algarve especially on the waves at Praia do Amado, Praia Cordoama and the praia's (beaches) of Sagres.
Get acquainted with this sensational sport during your stay at Monte Rosa. We organise day trips for beginners and advanced surfers to the west coast of the Algarve which is famous for its ideal surf conditions. For those of you who have a real passion for waves we can set up a week or fortnights worth of action packed surfing all along the coast (depending on where the surf is best) at a very competitive rate.
We will arrange for you to be picked up either directly from Monte Rosa or from Lagos. If you would prefer to take your own car you can also meet the group and follow them to the selected beach. The day will include lessons on the beach with experienced instructors and two sessions to practice with lunch in between.
From October to June a day trip is 50 euros and from July to September it costs 55 euros. Discounts are offered if you would like to surf for several days; 3 days cost 135/150 euro, 5 days cost 200/250 euro and longer periods will be calculated accordingly. This package includes your transport, surfboard, wetsuit, lunch and 2 lessons which are given in English.
Surfing can be fun for all ages, all that is required is that you are able to swim and have a reasonable physical condition. To catch a wave for the first time is a truly amazing experience and highly recommendable.
Before your departure you can have a lovely breakfast at Monte Rosa to keep you going in the early part of the day.
To support your surfing experience we recommend you participate in some yoga lessons at Monte Rosa. This promotes body awareness, concentration and equilibrium. It is also a great exercise to rebalance after a day of surfing as your muscles and body will be working hard.
