WHAT TO DO IN ESMORIZ BESIDES SURFING

Before or after enjoying our Esmoriz surf camp related packages, know that you can take the most out of the area using the bike, skate, jogging, walking or even on a SUP. You should definitely explore:

  • The Barrinha of Esmoriz lagoon on a Stand Up Paddle tour, walking or with the bike;
  • The eco-park of Buçaquinho, where you can walk around for sightseeing, or simply relax on the grass or at their lovely coffee place;
  • The local forest and its paths that go between pine trees and often lead to some waves;
  • The coastline and the beautiful white sandy beaches;
  • The local market, which can be a fun experience (opens on Monday mornings);
  • Consider the city agenda, which offers some nice events especially during Summer, mostly music and food related. Check our 2018 Events article or ask your favourite surfing teachers about it when you’re around.
  • Porto! The Esmoriz train station is about 3 km far from our house. If you’re enjoying a weekly package just grab a bike and make it fast and easy. The train will drive you to Porto’s centre in 25 min approximately!
  • After a long day, our backyard is a great option for catching some sun and restoring your energy levels. Maybe a yoga session would be a great idea for stretching! Then just grab a beer, turn the fire on the bbq and enjoy! If you rather try some typical dishes, remember we know where the best local food is served!

 

HOW ARE THE ESMORIZ SURF CONDITIONS?

In two words: relaxed and overwhelming! You can simply enjoy our Esmoriz surf camp experience by putting your wetsuit on and hit the closest spot, or join the team and discover an empty beach in the protected forest looking for some nice waves. There are a lot of surf spots around: beach breaks and point breaks that hit on a sandy surface. Even though conditions change fast in each spot, usually when one is not so good there’s a couple of new ones starting to pump! Summer swells / small waves season are a more recommendable time for beginners. But make no mistakes: if you booked a surf package or even just a couple of lessons, we’ll take you where the best conditions are, which might be from Esmoriz up to Espinho, which is only 8 km north. We proud ourselves on a close approach and a personalized relationship with our visitors, kind of a family vibe, which extends to the surfing lessons and our surfer/teacher ratio. Knowing the place like no-one, we’ve settled Surf Packs that serve our surf camp visitors’ best interests!

HOW TO GET TO…

PORTO
Currently, there are several low-cost airlines flying to Oporto – Francisco Sá Carneiro airport Portugal (OPO). The easiest way to get from the airport to the city is by metro. To do so, you should buy the Andante (metro and train card) and charge it with a ticket, which you can do in the local metro station. Then, after validating it, you only have to catch a metro heading to Porto and enjoy a 30 minutes ride approximately.

Check Porto Metro’s maps and timetables 

If you intend to go straight to our surf house Esmoriz, you should leave the metro in Campanhã station (Oporto) and go to the train station, which is right there when you get out.

PORTO – ESMORIZ
From the Campanhã train station, you should catch a train to Esmoriz (Aveiro line). Make sure you buy the train card (green one), add a ticket and validate it before you get on the train. After a 25 minutes journey, you’ll be in Esmoriz. If you want us to pick you up there don’t forget to let us know in advance.

Check Porto train’s maps and timetables 

But if you don’t want to bother with schedules and timetables simply ask us for an airport transfer. Nice and easy!  Prices (pick up time): 35€/trip from 9 am-11 pm; 45€/trip from 11 pm- 9 am
