Surfing in Vilamoura
Vilamoura, located on the south coast of the Algarve in Portugal is one of the best places in Europe for surfing. We have good waves, from fun little waves to good tubes. Vilamoura is the perfect spot for surfers and bodyboarders. If you want to explore the surf spots of this magnificent coastline then IF Vilamoura is your ideal base. Peak wave season is during the winter, but Vilamoura receives waves all year round.
The IF Vilamoura was also designed with surfers in mind and their need to have ample and safe space to store their boards and wetsuits. We have an area with a hose and running water, to wash and hang the suits. No wearing soaked wetsuits full of sand! We also have super fast wifi so you can check the surf report and plan your trip. If in doubt, our staff have been surfing these waters for 30 years, so we know where it's going to be good!
The IF Vilamoura collaborates with the Vilamoura Surf Project surf school to offer its guests and visitors discounted surf lessons and equipment hire. The surf school can pick you up at the door of the IF Vilamoura and take you to the best surf spot of the day. Vilamoura Surf Project is experienced in giving introductory classes for beginners, as well as training and guidance for surfers and bodyboarders.
