We´ve been there quite a few times now, and we will come back. It is always enjoyable, comfy, exciting and also relaxing stay at the Da silva Surfcamp. The hospitality in the

camp is just great, the surfcamp itself is very unique and extraordinary. The surf courses are very personal, great coaches! As a long time guest, i would consider the Da Silva family as friends already.
