In comparison to a lot of other surfing holidays, it really does not get much nicer or special than this. No matter what spot of the camp you are in, you are always in close proximity ocean below and are always encased in the forest that surrounds the camp. Imagine waking up to the sound of waves breaking on the cliffs below and wind rustling the leaves above your Tipi. In the evenings, the whole camp turns crimson in the golden sunset.

Where will you be waking up? Options:

  • Glamping: Spacious and clean tipi tents that are equipped with a great quality double bed (or two separate beds, an additional third bed can be requested). Uniquely in comparison to the general surf camp trend, the beds come pre-made with beautiful bedding and a bottle of wine waiting for you upon arrival. Towels are supplied.
  • Shared Accommodation: suitable for up to 3 people, these tents are designed to be shared among a group or a selection of solo travelers. The classification as to who goes in which tent is based upon age, gender and language.
  • Glamping Plus: looking to add that little something extra to your trip? Glamping plus is Dreamsea’s most luxurious camping style at any surf camp. It is an equally spacious teepee in the most remote and secluded part of the camp with its own terrace outside of the Tipi. From here you can sit and look over the cliff side views at the ocean below (ocean views cannot always be guaranteed) .


The real advantage to the this surfing holiday  is that the camp is located right above the beautiful beach that your lessons will be given on. This removes the annoyance of a long walk to the beach carrying all your gear. Additionally, the surf conditions in the area are perfect for beginners

  • Surfing Packages:
    • 10 hours of surfing lessons per week + use of surf equipment
    • Only use surf equipment.
    • If you go for the 10 hour surf lesson, you also have enough time to surf freely yourself. The lessons are recommended for surfers of all levels.
  • Surf materials:  the use of surf material (surfboard & wet suits) are included in the price of the stay.


Not only is this surfing holiday perfect for a relaxing week doing nothing, it is also the perfect base to explore the biggest city in Portugal as well as lots of other cool activities:

Lisbon: This excursion is organised once a week and is truly a unique opportunity to explore a city of world importance. You go by bus with the rest of the group to this city of culinary excellence. The city visit is optional but you really shouldn’t miss out.

Yoga: This  is a wonderful way to give your muscles the recovery and therapy that it really needs. Yoga is the perfect partner for surfing as it unwinds all the muscles you have spent hours tensing trying to stand up on the board. You can book a Yoga Package for 3 or 5 hours of lessons.

Chill the Dreamsea way: Numerous other options are available during the week so you will  not be bored for a second. Dreamsea Code is ‘Anything is possible, Nothing is Required’ so feel free to park yourself with a good book somewhere sunny and read the world away.

Food & Drinks

Dreamsea is world renowned for its excellent food quality. You will receive 3 full meals a day. In the morning there is a massive and varied buffet. You can use these ingredients to prepare yourself a wrapped pack lunch to take to the beach. This is great as you wont have to move to get food after surfing a hard session. Dreamsea takes meals times as an opportunity to showcase the local produce of Portugal, giving you a taste for what this wonderful country is all about. Dreamsea Plus meals are in a whole other world of there own, they include 3 courses and you can watch the cooking happen right in front of you !

  • Dietary Requirements: It is not a problem if you have any dietary requirements. Just inform the camp manager when you arrive. For those who have more obscure allergies, please let us know before you leave for your trip so we can make sure the camp is prepared.

Outside the surf camp

Alentejo is a relatively remote part of the Portuguese coast meaning there isn’t the typical infrastructure for  a crazy nightlife scene. However, there is more than enough opportunities to party with friends or fellow guest at the camp until a pre-established hour. There is also a great beach bar bellow the camp that acts as an epicenter for the camps social life. Partying is always optional around the camp but around 23;00, the camp must be quiet.
