The best surf spot in the North of Portugal

Estela, nestled halfway between Porto and the Spanish border, is a well-known surf beach by the locals. Quality waves with (fairly) empty line-ups make this an amazing spot to go surfing in Portugal. During the summer, tourists from all over can be found here (but no-where as many as in other spots in Portugal) and outside of the summer it stays relatively quiet.

What most of the guests liked is the personal attention you get, the surfing but also the moments you have to relax. You will be well able to find your inner rest while escaping from the busy life back home. However, for the people whom are looking for more of an adventure, there are several possibilities. If you check the profile of Estela Surf Hostel, you will find all about the different activities they organize. You can also check the prices and availability right away.

How one of our guests experienced surfing in the North of Portugal

”Marco will give you a lot of personal attention, he is really closely committed to the well-being of the guests. He made me learn about the best local wines and port, which was very pleasant. Raquel is an amazing chef and she prepared the best dishes for the guests. The house itself is well organized, clean and safe (also covid-related!). For me a whole new world opened in terms of local dishes, as well as a new geograpical region.” The fact this guest liked it so much is proven by the letter he left:

On behalf of this guest as well as on behalf on ourselves and SurfaWhile a great thanks to Estela Surf Hostel, the best place to go for surfing in the North of Portugal.
