Costa da Caparica - the best surf spot in lisbon

Just a 15 minute drive away from Lisbon city centre, across the Tagus river, you will find the authentic and charming fishing village of Costa da Caparica. This beach break is one of the most consistent surf spots in all of Portugal, offering the perfect waves for surfers of all levels.

Costa da Caparica and the surrounding area boasts many stunning white sand beaches and untouched nature, surrounded by the breathtaking cliffs. The woodland that you will find here is dominated by stone pines and mastic-trees and is part of the Arriba Fossil botanical reserve. There are lots of pleasant walks to be found here which are outlined with trail signs.

Caparica is the perfect playground for all surfers. Due to its unique location we are blessed by great swells all year around. Most of the local beaches are divided by piers which help you grab the best waves and provide shelter on the windier days. You will find people surfing, skating, biking, jogging and doing workouts at the free outdoor gym located right next to our surf school. Take one of our bikes or a skateboard along the promenade and explore the amazing view!

In Caparica town centre you’ll find plenty of local surf shops and markets to buy all your surf holiday essentials. After surfing you can chill in one of the beach bars or try a local Portuguese dish in one of the nearby restaurants.
