“The ocean, beach and nature make part of my life, I cannot live in a city.” Sara started bodyboarding when she was 15 years old, after a friend who was a champion of bodyboard offered to show her how to catch the waves. “Since I could walk I’ve been in the ocean. My father was a fisherman and we lived in Sagres, surrounded by the Atlantic, so my...
Normally we finish surf lessons and close the camp in November but we’re extending our bookings this year for 5 reasons… 1. Because Weather: Last year the weather was amazing after we closed the surf camp and this year looks like more of the same! The strong winter sun in south Portugal makes the days perfect, especially on the sheltered beaches. Thanks to the micro-climate of the Algarve, it’s one of the warmest places to spend winter in Europe and, of course, to surf…
This summer we had the pleasure to share some waves again (for the 12th time) with our very beautiful friends, Gosia from Poland, and Jesus from Spain, who first met on a surf holiday right here in the camp!

2017 season is full of all the normal fun and sun at Sagres Natura with our great gang this summer! Along with our ‘usual faces’ (Luis, Rogelio, Rafa and Massimo), in the line-up for our surf school crew this year we give a big welcome and a quick introduction to.. Bernardo, Erik, Budu and Ben. A little bit about them and their top tips for learning to surf..
The location of Sagres, on the southwest peninsula of Portugal, means consistent surf and only a short drive to the south or west coast. There are many beaches to choose from: the ones closest to the surf camp are only 5 minutes away, and lots more just 10, 20, 30 minutes away.
Learning to surf is much more than catching waves, it’s an experience that contains many lessons, and different for everybody. We share with you the surf journey of one of our lovely guests – it’s a long story, capturing what she finds special about surfing and Sagres; her discoveries, joys and thoughts. You maybe feel in some ways the same, or see surfing with completely different eyes. Let us know if you like to share your story for another news, and enjoy the read! Andra, from Bucharest but living now in Luxembourg, first stayed with us in September 2016..
What does this mean for you? Even better, even more beautiful photos of you enjoying the best moments of your surf holiday! We made a partnership with Massimo - Algarve Surf Photo - 2 years ago so when you surf with us you can have a reminder of your experience in the wonderful waves of the west Algarve. And now he can take his camera into the water and shoot you surfing ‘up close and personal’, to really capture the smile on your face..
