Portugal in May

I'm heading to Portugal with my husband in May on our honeymoon. We have 1 week- what is the best spot to surf in Portugal- i'm looking for the BEST longboard wave, preferably a point break. My husband- he can surf anything, so he'll be fine (hehe)
We are both experienced surfers, saying that i'm still a fan of big, fat long left hand waves....

Also any recomendation's for accommodation?

Hi Annalisa,
I stayed in the Helios Bungalows through surfholidays last year. In Ericeira and on Foz do Lizandro surf beach, would definitely recommend it, very quiet and chilled out and being on the beach was amazing



RE: Portugal in May

Ribeira d'Ilhas!!

Cheers and congrats!

RE: Portugal in May


you have tons of good places to chose in Portugal and some of them was already listed here. I think that if you would like to have the Longest wave in Europe you should go to Figueira da Foz, also you have other great waves in Ericeira for longboarding.
If you want to enjoy good longboard surf on reef break spot and excellent urban life and culture, you should come to Lisbon. We have a great surf camp in center town with good prices and excellent packages that includes the accommodation, the surf guide and everyday transportation from the surf camp to the selected surf spots.
Please if you would be interested just drop us an email, and we will be very glad to introduce you to our surf camp and services.

Best regards
