CLIFF Surf House in Santa Cruz

Cliff Surf House in Santa Cruz

A Home, not a Hotel. Come as a guest and leave as a friend.

Cliff Surf House is the perfect place for those who love nature, surfing and authentic Portuguese culture. Our Surfcamp was born of the desire to share the passion for surfing, the ocean and the amazing country of Portugal with every open-minded person.

The House

The new surf house for those who love nature, surfing and authentic Portuguese culture. Surf, chill and soak up the sun! Cliff Surf House is a high quility surf camp offering private and shared rooms as well as delicious food to live the surf lifestyle in Portugal.


Our capacity: We have space for 27 guests per week, in 7 double rooms and 2 shared rooms with bunk beds – all with a private and new renovated bathroom.
All of our rooms are kept in a unique and stylish surf atmosphere. Most of our furniture is handmade by our team. All bedding and bath towels are provided. We want you to feel at home while staying with us! We are not one of those mass-tourist places – at our house, everyone will know your name and you will be part of the Cliff family in no time. Cliff is the perfect Surfhouse in Portugal.


We love surfing, and our goal is to share this love with you, our guest! Whether it's your first rendezvous with the magic surf lifestyle, or you're already a "hooked" one, our team cannot wait to greet you on board!
You will enjoy a daily surf session of about 2 hours with a small snack (or nap) break. The class' schedules vary from day to day as they depend on ocean tides and weather conditions, but our team will always keep you updated.
In CLIFF, every surf lesson is composed in a way that enables joyful, step-by-step and easy-to-follow learning process. Even though each surf session is unique when it comes to feeling and content, there are core principles that form a solid basis for our surf teaching philosophy.

At sunrise and sunset, at fast pace and in meditation-like mode, first on sand, then on water, you will practice all kind of exercises and techniques to master the art of surf, gradually and joyfully. You will learn how to:

  • prepare your body for surf session with a proper warm-up
  • enter the water in right place and right time
  • choose waves
  • paddle efficiently and manage breath
  • stand up on board
  • hold balance and turn and many more things (we just don´t like listing!) Each surf session is, therefore, a balanced mix of theory, practice and rest.

We know eating is one of the biggest pleasures. Our homemade food is cooked with love and contains a large range of variety.
Getting most of our veggies and fruits straight from our own farm, means best food quality. We buy our fish and meat locally so it’s fresher than you’ll ever imagine. There is also always a vegetarian option, prepared freshly every day.

We serve up a nice breakfast with eggs, fruits, bread, juices, coffee and tea and some other goodies – there is something for everyone. Due to Corona restrictions we will serve the meals directly from the kitchen (no buffets possible).
