Our Area's Beaches...

Monte Clerigo Algarve Portugal

During your stay with us you are sure to visit one, if not all of the three beaches listed below. These beaches are all within 10 minutes drive of the lodge and are the main beaches we use to hold our surf lessons. The waves can differ on each beach depending on swell and wind direction. We have listed below what conditions work best for each beach!

Arrifana Beach:

A west facing beach that works best with a north northwesterly swell with a north to north easterly wind. Due to the direction that Arrifana is situated it has protection from big northerly swells and can hold swell up to 3 meters.

Monte Clerigo:

Monte Clerigo is a great summer break due to it's north westerly facing position. It receives all swell from the Atlantic Ocean and works best on a south to easterly wind. You will always find a wave at Monte Clerigo when Arrifana is flat.


Amoreira is Monte Clerigo's sister beach due to the proximity of their locations. Amoreira works on the same conditions as Monte Clerigo but due to the river that creates a beautiful lagoon the banks at this beach vary from that of Monte Clerigo creating different waves on different tides thus making it a great alternative to Monte Clerigo.
