Surf is regarded as an important segment in water sports tourism as it diversifies the supply, attracts the market and energises the regional economies, thus enriching the value of this proposal in a country anchored in a distinctive natural resource – the Portuguese sea.”
Tourism of Portugal
Portugal is a sort of big beach. The combination of an irregular coastline of 943 km (586 miles) in mainland Portugal and 667 Km (414 miles) in the Azores and Madeira islands with the flow of the Atlantic swells, results in about 220 beaches for you to explore. In fact, you don’t need to travel far to find a quiet beach to enjoy the best surf and the harmony between man and nature.
From north to south, including the islands, the existing variety of spots, as well as natural and climate conditions, mean that surfing can be practiced all year round by everyone without exception: from the most experienced and fearless to beginners or simple lovers of nature and the ocean.
Added to these territorial characteristics are the excellent conditions offered by the existing touristic services – accommodation, gastronomy, culture (here’s a couple of reasons to convince you of the greatness of Portugal).
Portugal has undoubtedly the best conditions for surfing in Europe.
