A HOME, NOT A HOTEL
A lifestyle, not a sport.
It`s always been about guests, who became friends, about sharing surf sessions, sunsets or food around a big table. Together, we are a family dedicated to living a relaxed life in the sunshine, close to the ocean.
Cliff Surf House is a place to create memories, share a passion for surfing, have fun, and build long-lasting friendships.
Welcome to our sunny pool chillout area, the hotspot to hang out, get some tan and enjoy a cool drink. We have sun all day long here.
This is our bar featuring a fine selection of drinks, beers, and cocktails. Some parties have become extra lively thanks to our homemade Limoncello Spritz.
We are very proud of our own 6,000 sqm farm where we grow most of our veggies and fruits. We’ve even got a greenhouse and some happy goats and chickens living their best life.
Are you looking for the perfect Surfhouse in Portugal for your surfing holiday?
Cliff Surf House has got you covered! After five seasons in another house, our new home opened its doors for the very first time in July 2021. We worked hard to make everything as cosy as possible. We upgraded all our wooden beds to maximise comfort. All our double rooms got new and private bathrooms. No matter if you prefer a single room, a double room or a shared room – you decide where you will stay and what accommodation suits your budget and vibe!
Our capacity: We have space for 27 guests per week, in 1 single room, 6 double rooms and 2 shared rooms with bunk beds – all with a private bathroom.
All of our rooms are kept in a unique and stylish surf atmosphere. Most of our furniture is handmade by our team. All bedding and bath towels are provided. We want you to feel at home while staying with us! We are not one of those mass-tourist places – at our house, everyone will know your name and you will be part of the Cliff family in no time. Cliff is the perfect Surfhouse in Portugal.
We believe that a good rest is important to be full of energy for the next surf lessons.
No matter if you sleep in a dorm or double room, you will sleep and dream well.

We believe it’s not only surfing and fascinating nature that counts, but also other travelers to share the extraordinary moments with. Cliff Surf House is designed to make it easy to make new friends you can share your experiences with. Every week we have people traveling alone, but also friends or couples, which are just waiting to get to know you. The average age is 24-35 years. Our guests have an international background, mostly from Europe. During High Season (June-September) we only accept guests with a minimum age of 18 years. During Low- and Mid Season we also accept families.
We have hosted birthday and bachelor parties, company retreats, yoga retreats, even a wedding! Just ask us, if you plan something special.
sustainability – our own farm
Surfing’s connection to nature is imbedded in the very origins of the sport.
We want to protect our nature by trying to make as little impact on the environment as possible. We try to have less stuff, but with more meaning. We repair broken things, before throwing them away. We respect nature.
Since 2021 we have an own farm with 6.000 m² to prodcue our own veggies and fruits. Fresher than that is impossible.
„REuse – REduce – REcycle – REpeat” is our credo. We kindly ask you to support our vision, which helps us to become a sustainable Surfhouse in Portugal.
Here a few actions we take, to live a little greener: We get most of our energy from out solar panels, we organize beach cleans, we are part of „take 3 for the sea“ initiative, which basically means we always bring 3 pieces of plastic items from the beach.
We buy everything from our region. Our staff comes mostly from our area, which supports the local economy. With booking Cliff Surf House you do everything right: For yourself, for the locals and for our beloved planet.
We know eating is one of the biggest pleasures. Our homemade food is cooked with love and contains a large range of variety.
Getting most of our veggies and fruits straight from our own farm, means best food quality. We buy our fish and meat locally so it’s fresher than you’ll ever imagine. There is also always a vegetarian option, prepared freshly every day.
BREAKFAST is included for everyone. We serve up a nice buffet with eggs, homemade hummus or creme cheeses, fruits from our own farm, bread, juices, coffee and tea and some other goodies – there is something for everyone.
LUNCH: We offer a selection of delicious, healthy snacks at fair prices (4,00€ – 9,00€) for lunch. Choose what you’d like to eat. Our most popular snacks are definitively the Cliff Avocado & Egg Toast, Acai Bowl, Hummus Bowl, or the Feta Salad. For those who are extra hungry, we also have a burger on the menu.
Make all meals vegan for €20/week, featuring special vegan products. Unfortunately, we can’t accommodate all dietary preferences (such as gluten, lactose, nuts). However, all our guests have left happy and satisfied so far.
DINNERS: If you have booked the Surf Package, a delicious welcome dinner is included in your pack. At Cliff, we offer one dinner per evening, which you can choose to book. A typical week may include a big BBQ with local meat and fresh salads and veggies, Curry Night with homemade Naan Bread, Taco Night with a big buffet of veggies and homemade sauces, a Local Dinner out in town and Chili con/sin carne. The prices for the home-cooked dinner at Cliff range between 15€ -18€. Additionally, we have a sushi chef visiting the Camp once a week, crafting the best sushi in town for our guests (30€ per person). Your vacation, your choice. You are absolutely free to go into town and have dinner on your own. Since we do not provide a communal kitchen, cooking by yourself is not possible. Please note: When we go to the local restaurant, we cannot guarantee vegetarian or vegan options, as this is out of our hands.
