The concept behind Eco Surf Lodge Caparica is simple: To provide a relaxed holiday atmosphere and great surf. The day to day running of the camp is undertaken by Wonder Seasons who are based out of Portugal. They know artists and designers in the area and decided to do a little collaboration, which would mean they get stunning custom furniture made for their camp. The artists decided to utilise recycled wood from the surrounding area for the main pieces such as beds and tables but also incorporated other artistic elements such as table lamps made out of driftwood, and surf art photography and paintings.

Another main focus of the camp and their staff is to provide delicious and fresh food, sourced directly from the area around Caparica. The vegetables they use are also grown organically without chemicals and genetic modification.

Eco Surf lodge not only has a lot to offer inside, but also out. They have a giant pool and amazing garden with outdoor patio area and all is located just 2 minutes away from the local beach of Paraíso. There are yoga classes available and if you don’t want to walk you can rent beach cruises bike directly from the camp.

The amazing beaches of Costa da Caprica

Costa da Caparica
Around the camp you have 13km of sandy beaches with what seems like an uncountable number of surf breaks. Costa da Caparica is on the other side of the Tejo River and is connected to Lisbon via the iconic Ponte 25 de Abril suspension bridge. The area is essentially the home break for Lisbon. Getting to Lisbon is a breeze; you just catch a short bus to the ferry, which then takes you directly across to the city centre, the trip in total takes around 30 minutes.

The lodge itself is in a quiet neighbourhood so chilling in the pool, garden, or even your room, can be just as relaxing as doing the same on the beach. Along the coast you can find amazing, traditional restaurants and bars with everything being easily accessible by foot or bike. There are also supermarkets and shops in the area.

After surf stroll to Leblon Beach Bar

Leblon Beach Bar
Leblon on São João beach is the perfect spot to refresh after your time spent out in the waves. You can order a snack and drinks while enjoying chilled lounge music, a relaxed atmosphere and an amazing view. Every Sunday in the peak season there is an event called Sunset Sessions where a DJ comes to play, and great cocktails are served.

Flea Market
Here you can find everything from souvenirs to vintage pearls. Every Sunday starting at 9 you’ll find locals selling almost everything along the beach. If you’re lucky you might even find some pirate treasure.

Bike Tour to Bélem
If you decide to rent a beach cruiser from the lodge, you can ride them all the way to Trafaria. There you can jump on a ferry and you will be right in the heart of the Bélem district of Lisbon. There is a local delicacy called Pasteis de Bélem which is well worth trying and if you want to do some sightseeing, you can check out the Church, Santa Maria de Belém or Bélem Tower which protected the Lisbon harbours northern side from invading ships.

A little theory and safety briefing before you head into the surf

Eco Surf Lodge gives you the chance to experience the real feeling of surfing.

On offer are both the beginners, and advanced, surf course. They run from Monday to Friday, and you head to the water after breakfast. If the conditions are better later the coaches will shift the time to make use of the best waves for you and your skill level.

The beginners’ basic course is aimed at getting you up and standing on your first waves, as well as getting you feeling comfortable in the water. You will also learn some things about the ocean, tides, surf conditions and the equipment.

The advanced course is for those who can get up and into waves already. During this course you’ll get to explore more advanced surf spots, such as reef and point breaks, while working on your turns and positioning. The coaches will be out with you to give you pointers on your surfing and insider info about the best take of zones and the wave in general.

The local surf coaches have over 20 years of surfing experience and know the ins and outs of the Caparica coast. This local knowledge will mean you get to go to the best breaks for your level and develop your surfing skills quickly. Safety and fun are always paramount to any surf lesson, and the crew want to push your surfing, so the aim is not to make the classes too easy and boring, but also not too push to much to a point where you feel overwhelmed.

Surfboard and wetsuit are included in whatever course you decide to do, and if you are not ready to commit to a 10-hour course, you can take a single day, 2-hour class, for 30€ that also includes gear.

The beach in front of Eco Surf Lodge called Paraíso provides consistent surf with a variety of peaks that offer waves to suit anyone from the first timer to the experienced soul surfer. CDS is also nearby which is a consistent beach break with numerous breakwaters that provide long rides both left and right as well as A-frame peaks along the beach.

Along the 13 km stretch of beach from Lisbon to the edges of Caparica you have an abundance of places to surf including point and beach breaks for all levels. And if you have a car you can drive further north and explore spots around Peniche and Ericeira for even more variation.

The water temperature in the Atlantic Ocean hovers just over 20°C in summer so a 3/2mm wetsuit or even spring suit is best. In winter water temperature drops to around 17°C so 4/3mm full suit is required.

Four times a week the Eco Surf Lodge prepare a spectacular meal using local seasonal ingredients. They buy everything they need fresh from the organic market and prepare the meal while you are out in the surf. The menu changes weekly but it always includes 2 evenings where the BBQ will get fired up and some great marinated meat, fish, and vegetables get cooked by the grill master. There are always salads and sides, and a glass of local Portuguese wine and water to accompany the meal as well. We recommend this option as it takes the stress out of searching for a place to eat after a long day of surfing and only costs 59€ for 4 meals.

In the township of Caparica you will find plenty of great cafes and restaurants that serve local and international meals. There are some great spots that serve some of the freshest seafood you are likely to find.

Yoga with a view

Yoga is the perfect activity to improve your surfing skills. Yoga works your core, improves flexibility, it develops your sense of balance, gives you control over your breathing and relaxes the mind, all of which are vital to becoming a great surfer. Yoga will also loosen those muscles that have been vigorously worked during the days paddling and get you prepared for tomorrow. The classes either take place on the beach or in the garden in the morning or evening when the sun, and temperature, is lower.

The class with a qualified yoga teacher costs 15€ and requires 2 participants.
