Our Surf House is located in Sagres, where you will find numerous spots and wave conditions for all surf levels. We offer accommodation in Surf House 600 meters from the beach, with terrace overlooking the sea and WIFI. There is a possibility of booking private or shared rooms. Wavesensations means the road to paradise, a surfing spot in Algarve where lovers of water sports and adventure will find both adrenaline and peace.
SURF LESSONS OR SURFCAMP?
Well, if you’re serious about learning how to surf, you should be doing both. A few lessons at Wavesensations is the best investment you could make. It will give you a basis that will prove invaluable in the end. And a surf camp is something that any surfer can benefit from. It offers not just surf lessons, but a chance to be a part of a community, to bond with others and that will help keep the passion for surfing alive. That will solidify all your surfing skills and knowledge. So, book a surf camp whenever you feel the need to be around other people and to learn new things about surfing.
Anything suitable for you? Don’t worries, we can make a complete tailored package for you.

AMAZING experience!! My bf and I did the short stay (3x days surf, 4x night stay) which was perfect and not many other schools offer this type of package which was a big plus. We enjoyed our time so much we went surfing with them again the day we checked out! We highly recommend Wavesensation Surf camp & the surf house. The house itself is beautiful and has all the amenities you need. The interior is modern, clean and well designed- you feel right at home immediately. The welcoming staff is very professional, friendly and helpful (shout out to Pedro). We had a private double room which was phenomenal -high hotel standards. TV included, Wifi, great bathroom and nice bed. The only small missing part was a self controlled aircon or a fan. Breakfast was basic, but very nice. We would just recommend serving breakfast a bit earlier since there wasn't enough time to digest between breakfast and surf lessons. The backyard area is also AMAZING. So nice to spend time there relaxing, reading, hanging out and enjoying the sun and Sagres breeze. Great restaurants nearby- all walking distance. Tonel Beach is just 5 minutes walking and great place to learn to surf. This was our First time surfing and we could not have had a better experience. All the equipment including boards, wet suits and leashes were great quality. We could not have asked for better instructors. SUPER professional, knowledgeable, fun, attentive and just great people. We always had 3-4 instructors. They were so patient and helpful while in the water- that after just 1 day of lessons we were already standing and catching some wavesss!! We felt safe, confident and they always immediately gave us feedback after every wave which helped so much. Thank you Caio, Bine, Danka and Nelson for such an unforgettable time!!

Stayed there in June 2019; the house is basically refurbished to very high standard, everything works perfectly well and with the Scandinavian decor I felt fully at home! The breakfast was very varied and fulfilling (yogurt, cereals, toast, pastries, muffings, fruit, sausages, eggs, cheese...). All the instructors were excellent, but specially Nelson, he'd be the last one leaving the water, would wait until we were all out of it and then he'd check on each of us and is amazing at encouraging you when you are getting tired and at spotting what you're doing wrong and how to improve it. I hope I'll get to be his 'pupil' again sometime. They also lend you beach towels. The vibe at the house is great and the rest of the staff are very willing to help with anything and accommodating. Definitely will try to go back!

Had an amazing time there. Carlos is a great instructor, paid some attention to each of us individually, even there was a changing group. Only negative point: it was end of season (early november), thus conditions hasn't been as easy, but we made the best of it, starting earlier, shorter breaks, ... would recommend it for beginner!

The beaches around Sagres, in the Algarve region, are amongst the best surfing spots in Portugal: Praia do Beliche, Tonel, Telheiro, Zavial, Praia da Mareta… every beach has different wave characteristics and is suited for different surf levels.
WHEN TO COME
BEST MONTHS FOR SURFING
If you combine surfing and pleasure, then anytime between May and October is best. If you attend a course for several days, then any month will do (please note that we are closed in January). If you are an experienced surfer and looking for the biggest waves, then try to avoid the summer months.
ALL YEAR LONG
The west of the Algarve creates good waves 365 days a year. It is possible to practice surf every day. This is quite unique, as other surf destinations in Portugal cannot guarantee the same. Algarve has the best waves in Europe according to the Portuguese tourist authorities.
Wavesensations is a very nice place to learn surf. The surf camp is very clean and you can do a lot of think and meet very nice people. It was a perfect moment in this place.
I had four days to learn surfing with wavesensations as a total beginner. When I came to the group, it was professionaly divided in different lernlevals, therefore i learned the basics fastly and could start to practice in the white water soon. safety roles were always professionally added and repeated in the right moment. Exept a safety instruction, important to me was the very professional technical instruction. Beyond my instructor had a high sensibility finding and correcting mistakes, which allowed a quick progress for me.More then professional to me is that the instructor were very passionated helping, supporting and motivating the surfers allalong the lessons by creating a family atmosphere.My plan was to surf only one day, in the end it became 4 days and now i will come back and surf again 😄. Of course with wavesensations 😎🤙.Thank you Bernado 😉.
Super accommodation and incredible surf and yoga instructors, nice friendly and both good teachers and mentors!

Top class group of people in the shop and in the surf school thank you for a great holiday !!! ���
Highly recommend you use this surf company when visiting Sagres, my boyfriend rented a board and we joined them for transfers to and from the beach each day. The guys always spend time in the morning checking for the best conditions and beach and were so welcoming and helpful, the learners all looked like they were having a great time too.Although I wasn't surfing I still loved the experience and Mark fully appreciated the guidance and support, thank you so much to Alex, Carlos & Olly. The girls we met in the shop are also great and very helpful, thank you!! ..... We will be back I hope!!! �⛱
