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 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.
We also have a great bar with a fine selection of drinks, beers and cocktails. You chill at the pool, we serve you cold drinks.
There’s no better way to enjoy a beautiful summer than jamming to live music outside. If you have a talent, here is your stage.
Are you looking for the perfect Surfhouse in Portugal for your surfing holiday?
Cliff Surf House has got you covered! Our new house is opening the doors on the 17th of July 2021 for the very first time. We worked hard to make everything as cosy as possible. We upgraded all our wooden beds to maximise comfort. All our 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!
As we are still rebuilding the inside of our new house, to make everything perfect until we open, we currently cannot show pictures from the inside of the house. Those who know us from the last 5 seasons, also know our taste and vibe. For all new guests, we can guarantee you a modern, chilled and individual style. If you are interested in the building process, feel free to follow us on Instagram (@cliff_surfhouse). We will share updates regularly. The images here are examples of our old house.
Our capacity: We have space for 27 guests per week, in 7 double rooms and 2 shared rooms with bunk beds – all with a private and new renovated 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. Cliff: the perfect Surfhouse in Portugal!

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.
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.
We serve up a nice breakfast with eggs, fruits, bread, juices, coffee and tea and some other goodies – there is something for everyone. Due to Corona restrictions we will serve the meals directly from the kitchen (no buffets possible).
The highlight of the week: CLIFF SURF BBQ. We turn on the barbecue and put on the tasteful meat and a lot of nice veggies. Can you smell the fire already?
Food allergies are no problem here. We can cater for your dietary requirements, upon booking. Please mention your allergy or special requirements.
Within Japanese cuisine, sushi has captured the hearts of gourmets from all over the world. Our world-class sushi chef Fernando and his team are coming once a week to our Surf House to offer amazing rolls, sashimi and appetizers using only the freshest ingredients. If you are looking for a really special taste experience, you are very welcome to book this extra.
