Gota d’Agua Caparica, Portugal

Gota d'Agua is a particular home favorite of Errant for one key reason...they really know what a surfing holiday should be. The surf house is run by four legendary surfers that we like to call the Four Boys of Gota d'Agua. Backed by a number of volunteers, the four boys are experts at giving you exactly what a surfing holiday should be. They are extremely attentive and are ready to help at a moments notice. Rarely in a surf house is customer service held in such high regard, the only thing they love more than putting a smile on your face is taking you surfing!
Caparica is a terrific choice for your surfing holiday because of its versatility in terms of getting to world class surf spots and for excursions. The combination of great beaches and expertly taught surf lessons makes this a perfect place to begin your surfing adventure. You can easily upgrade your package to include Yoga sessions to help you unwind and loosen up after a tough day surfing. Yoga & Surfing is the best combination since Sunsets & Sangria..... You can get a lot of those at Gota d'Agua too!!!

    • Private: It is possible to stay in a private room or a double/triple. There are 2 private rooms in this house however the Gota d’Agua suites are a thirty second walk away with 5 more rooms.


Caparica is littered with great surfing beaches to choose from, which makes it particularity unique. Gota d’ Agua is very well acquainted with all of the available beaches as they have 4 surf schools across Caprica that can give lessons to guests depending on when and were the best swells are, at any particular moment.

Food & Drinks

A lovingly curated breakfast of fresh fruit and local produce is prepared for you every morning and is included within the price of your stay. In addition, during your stay you will receive 5 x dinners, prepared on site.

  • Cooking Facilities: there is a kitchen available that all guests can use. This is a true luxury at a surf house, giving you flexibility with your lunch arrangements.

Outside the surf camp

Caparica itself is more of a rest and relaxation centric kind of place. The surf house has it’s own out door bar that acts as the epicenter for all socializing and partying at the house. Event’s such as the BBQ or wine tastings add a lot to the social aspect of a surf trip. However, if you still have a craving for a more typical nightlife then you have a few options:

  • Caparica: Fresh Bar and Wild Wednesday’s are crowd favorites among guests at Gota d’agua. Fresh bar is a great little bar down in the town, a hotspot pretty much all week. Wild Wednesdays is, to nobody surprise, on Wednesdays. Drinking, dancing and hangovers are all part of the wild Wednesday agenda. I true Portuguese experience!
  • Lisbon: One of the best things about staying in Caparica is that you get to relax in tranquility and party in Lisbon. For a small 15 euro fee each for 4 people you can get an uber straight to the party capital of Portugal !1
