Surfing holiday in Portugal or the Canary Islands

    Hi all,

    I'm hoping to go on a weeks surfing holiday (solo) to somewhere in Europe, any advice would be greatly appreciated?

    Such as,

    Portugal, Spain or the Canary Islands?
    Recommend any particular surf spot / surf lodge for a beginner level?
    Best time of the year to go for waves & a good social element?
    Hoping to join a group as will be a solo traveler, surf by day & drink/music/bbq by night?
    Within a reasonable budget?

    Thanking you.


  • Do a search for surf school deals and check flight prices and book...

    Most places are good crack, canaries will have better weather but more expensive flights

  • Thanks for your advice Rodento.

  • You could check out morocco as well

  • Ryanair is advertising a sale now

  • a group of us are just back from Portugal. nice waves and it cost €98 return with Ryanair. super cheap place to be in (Peniche is the area) and plenty of surf camps in the area.

  • Thanks for your feedback Fionn101, I looked into Peniche, looks really good & so accessible. Could be a contender!

    Nice one spaceHopper, the cheaper the flight the better :P
