WHAT TO DO IN ESPINHO BESIDES SURFING

When you’re done surfing Espinho’s waves and want to recover your strength, you can then take a walk, go jogging or put on the skates and discover:

  • The beautiful coastline and explore it along the sidewalk;
  • The local market, which is a unique experience for all your senses (opens Mondays);
  • Shopping places, such as groceries, supermarkets and local shops;
  • Live performance rooms, bars and restaurants. Just remember we know where the best local food is served and we’ll be happy to share that!
  • The city agenda, which is busy and covers different type of events, especially during Summer. Check our 2018 Events article, or ask your favourite surfing teachers about it when you’re around.
  • For adrenaline lovers, the skate-park is 300 meters far from us, as well as the Casino!
  • Espinho Surf beaches are great to explore, but maybe you would like to explore some more in Portugal! The underground train station is 200 meters far from our surf house. You can go to any city in Portugal from there. One minute you’re surfing and 20 minutes after you’re in Porto’s centre. Easy peasy!
  • At the end of the day, remember you can simply come home, prepare a home-cook meal in our kitchen, grab a drink and enjoy the sunset and the ocean view from the balcony.

 

HOW ARE THE ESPINHO SURF CONDITIONS?

The Swells are definitely convenient and consistent!

If you ever dreamed about waking up in front off the beach without hassle just seconds away from surfing, well… our Espinho surf camp experience can make your dreams come true! Two steps away from our surf house, the queen of surfing spots in the north of Portugal is located: the Bay spot! Espinho’s waves offer top conditions from beginners to advanced surfers. Beach breaks and point breaks that hit on the sand. Even though some crowd is there sometimes, it’s nothing if you compare it to spots like Peniche, Ericeira or Algarve. We pride ourselves on a close approach and a personalized relationship with our visitors, kind of like a family relationship. That shows in the way we set up our surfing lessons and our surfer/teacher ratio. Surf courses, single surf lessons and surfing rentals are some of the surf-related services we have on offer, besides SUP tours, yoga, bike rentals and transfers. Because we know the place like no-one, we’ve created Surf Vacation Packs that serve our visitors’ best interests!

HOW TO GET TO OUR SURF HOUSE IN ESPINHO…

PORTO
Currently, there are several low-cost companies 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 Espinho, you should leave the metro in Campanhã station (Oporto) and go to the train spot, which is right over there.

PORTO – ESPINHO
From the Campanhã train station, you should catch a train to Espinho (Aveiro line). You can use the same card you got from the airport’s metro. After a 20 minutes journey, you’ll be at the train stop/station of Espinho, which is just about 200 meters away from us.

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

We’re waiting for you here to offer you a full Espinho surf camp experience!
