Just had an amazing week surfing with these guys and gals. Excellent communication during the booking process and leading up to arrival. Although it is very much off-season in February we were exceptionally well looked after. Any problems were taken care of immediately and the attitude of everyone working was first class. The accommodation was exactly as described, nothing fancy...

I had been to Baleal Surf Camp 2 years ago, as a solo traveler. This year I decided to return with a friend. We weren't disappointed. All of the surf instructors are really friendly, funny and supportive. They are keen to see everyone improve and are always on hand with good advice, even outside of surf sessions. Thanks to Joao...

Surf school was great and we had a blast. Got loads of great surfing tips that will really help to progress even as an occasional surfer. Instructors were great and put on a great BBQ and surf competition at the end of the week! The accommodation was great - very clean and a great shower. Get's a bit chilly if...

I can only excuse myself for the bad service, wich was the case on this particular day. The cleaning lady did a terrible job that day, and the rest of the staff was not diligent enough to solve in a reasonable way the unusual situation and bad service. We tried to offer an alternative solution, but it was to late,...

Absolutely love this place have been back again and again. The instructors are the best I have ever found from years of surfing badly all over the world 😂 they will actually help you improve and teach you what you need to move forward and practice without tuition. Great atmosphere around Brunos, and the beach is amazing to learn on....

Stayed here 3 times now. And solo each time. What's not to like. The staff are awesome, the other travellers are too. And as someone who has surfed (badly) for years.... the tuition is too notch. I'll be back next summer!!!

The only negative of the Baleal Family Surf camp is that the week goes way too fast. We had a most wonderful family holiday and wish we were still there. Baleal Surfcamp is located right on the beach and accommodations are walking distance away. Peniche turns out to be a surfing mecca in Portugal and the advantage of the area...
