Espinho is a small city by the sea 20 km south from Porto, in the north of Portugal.
Our surf house Espinho is located within a 20 meters walk from the beach, where the waves are usually pumping. And also home of what probably is considered to be the best surf spot in northern Portugal: the Bay spot. With 5 rooms overlooking the ocean and balconies that allow you to feel its breeze, the house has nice and comfortable common rooms and a fully equipped kitchen.
You’ve probably dreamed about it before. You need a break from your daily routine. You can’t stop dreaming about waking up in front of a beach, leaving your surf vacation house with your wetsuit on and the surfboard under your arm? Then our surf house in Espinho is just what you’re looking for. Surfing Espinho means consistent point breaks and beach breaks, suitable for all surfing skills, all for you to enjoy. Some crowds might be around during high season, especially compared with Esmoriz and its surroundings. But make no mistakes- that’s nothing compared to surf spots like Peniche, Ericeira or Algarve. So it’s always a matter of perspective!
Weekly Surf& Accommodation pack, single surf lessons and surfing rentals are some of the surf related services we have on offer, besides yoga and functional training. Check all the possibilities on our Services label.
When you’re done with surfing Espinho neighbouring coastlines and need to recover your strength? Then take a walk, jog or even skate (yes, we have them for you to use). On the sidewalk along the coast, it’s always a good option. If you want a bit more adrenaline there’s also a skatepark about 300 meters from our surf house. Just make sure the next day you’re in one piece to hit some more big waves.
Also, you can explore Espinho easily, as most of what you ever need is at a walking distance: surf-shops (just next door), shopping places, live performances rooms, the local market and even a casino. The train spot, which is only 200 meters away from us, allows you to go everywhere.
Later in the day, a Yoga or a Functional Training session by the beach can be held, where we focus mainly on stretching. This might be exactly what you need to recharge the batteries for the next chapter of you surfing Espinho. The Weekly Surf & accommodation Pack includes both of those services and scheduling them it’s the only thing needed. Bed & breakfast guests can also enjoy it. For that, you just have to ask us (please check our Services).
Because you can’t ride waves on an empty stomach, try some of the best local food that Espinho has to offer. Planning a relaxed homemade meal is an easy task. The best restaurants, small grocery shops or supermarkets are close by. Remember to ask your best-surfing partners in Espinho (us) for advice.
Being this close to Porto (average 20 minutes train-ride), you definitely should take the opportunity to get your groove on a bit and take a dip in what this unique city has to offer. For sure you won’t regret it!

Currently, there are several low-cost companies flying to Oporto – Francisco Sá Carneiro airport Portugal (OPO).
The easier 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 you only have to catch a metro heading to Porto and enjoy a 30 minutes ride approximately.
If you intend to go straight to our surf house Espinho, you should leave the metro in Campanhã station (Oporto) and go the train spot, which is right over there.
PORTO (Campanhã station) to ESPINHO
From the Campanhã train station, you should catch a train to Espinho (Aveiro line). You can use the same card 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. Couldn’t be easier…
