Maceda Surf Camp Location

Eco Surf Retreat in a Coastal Pine Forest

Surf Sessions


Maceda has become a popular surf destination for North Portuguese surfers, but is still relatively uncrowded by tourists. What's more, Maceda has great access to better known surf destinations Cortegaça, Esmoriz and Espinho. With so much surf on the doorstep it's amazing that this location has remained a secret for so long. Our beautiful, off the beaten track surf paradise is waiting for you!

The nearest cities, Porto and Aveiro, are just 30 minutes by car or train and are easily accessible. We highly recommend including a visit to either city during your stay. OPO is the nearest airport although it's also possible to fly to Lisbon and take the train to Maceda. The closest train station to Camp (Carvalheira-Maceda) is a 10 minute walk.

Maceda Surf Camp is located in a small village, in the middle of a protected coastal Pine Forest Reserve. It is the only accommodation with such good access to surf and nature. The forest road has a bike path that's great for cycling or skating and offers access to remote beaches.



The Surf House has a Shared Dorm for 6 people with a Private Bathroom, a social kitchen and a living room. The kitchen and common room are available for all guests to use. In the Garden there are 3 Private Rooms all with Private Bathrooms. Our total capacity is 13 people.

Every day a fresh cold breakfast is available for all guests in the kitchen. This includes fresh bread, ham & cheese, milk, cereals, fresh fruit and yogurt. If you have any special dietary requirements please let us know, we are happy to provide what you need.

In addition to the kitchen and common room, there are a few lovely outdoor places to dine and hang out. We have a small outdoor rustic breakfast table under a giant fig tree. For larger groups we have "The Tent", a covered deck space with dining table and chill zone.

The garden has a barbeque outdoor shower, hammocks and lots of space for ball games or even to enjoy the quiet while reading a book!
