    Portugal, a surfers’ paradise

With more than 850km of coast, Portugal is the perfect place for surfing. With favourable winds and year-round sunshine, few coasts around the world offer so many places so close together to catch waves.

The ocean crashes against the Portuguese coast and rock canyons have formed at the bottom of the sea at many beaches, which all act to create bigger and stronger waves. From the most famous giant waves, like those at Nazaré, chased by only the most fearless surfers like Garrett McNamara, to waves more appropriate for all levels, Portugal offers perfect conditions for surfing and other sports like body boarding, windsurfing, kite surfing, or paddle surfing.

Porto is not an exception; not far from the city centre you can find beaches where you can quench your thirst for waves. At Bluesock Hostels we understand this thirst, which is why we offer our guests the opportunity to learn or perfect their board skills with surf classes at Matosinhos in collaboration with Onda Pura surf school. Whether you book our Surf Camp or jump on board the Surf Bus that leaves from our hostel, don’t let the opportunity pass you by; take advantage of your stay in Porto and experience the famous Portuguese waves.
