PAPAYA SURF CAMPS
WHAT WE DO
The story of Papaya Surf Camps in Portugal begins in the very end of Europe, somewhere by the ocean. We deeply believe our home is an incredible world to be introduced to and one of the most magical places to experience local life, enjoy the simplicity and the beauty of nature. The purpose of our surf camp & surf school is to share this joy and invite you to experience it with us.
At Papaya Surf Camps we take care of the comprehensive organization of your surf holiday, starting from airport pick-up, through accommodation and surf lessons, to transfer back to the airport. We make every effort so that you do not have to worry about anything on the spot but only enjoy your surf holidays in Portugal. We are at your disposal 24/7, providing you with any advice and tips on local attractions.
We operate in two key locations in Portugal: Cascais and Ericeira. Each of them has a slightly different vibe to offer. Once a fishing village, Cascais is now a trendy Portuguese resort located just 20 minutes from Lisbon. The place combines urban attractions with breathtaking nature and excellent surfing conditions (some of the best world surfers come from here!). In addition, Cascais is a great starting point to explore the Portuguese capital or nearby Sintra.
Ericeira, called the European capital of surfing, is a place entirely dedicated to this sport. About 40 minutes from Lisbon, the resort hosts beginner-surfers from all over Europe and surfing is the leitmotiv of many beach bars, restaurants, local shops, etc. It's the perfect choice for those who want to plan their vacation all around surfing rather than other activities.
We are surf camps operators in Portugal and surfers ourselves. We know exactly what is important when choosing your surf destination and first surf lessons experience. In Papaya Surf Camps in Portugal we run our independent Papaya Surf School and work with the best local surf hostels, providing you with the best conditions to surf & stay in Cascais and Ericeira.
