Lovely peek into local life

A great option for a rainy day, or any day that you are looking to understand the area a little better. The museum exhibition is themed around life where sea meets land, and the unique way of life that has evolved, living off both the sea and the land.

Algarve Surf School - Day Lessons

Since 1996 we've grown into what we hope is the best Surf School in the Algarve, with the top hostels in both Sagres & Lagos, and Surf Shop with a wide range of products. The Surf School still remains at the heart of the company. Learning to surf is the most exciting part about surfing, we've all been beginners at some point & we want to make this experience the best one in the world for you!

Better than we thought it would be

With terrible weather and lack of surf conditions we were not expecting much but we had a great day. Pete (the instructor) was really approachable and taught us really well. The group was good with a combination of people on day lessons and longer courses. Good value for money and really enjoyed it.
