From being collected at Peniche bus station by Ulisses i was made to feel more than welcome and nothing appeared to be too much trouble. I stayed for 1 week and had a great time. The surf coaches, Pedro...

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...

There is nothing negative to say about this place. The hostel is clean and the rooms are nice, it's close to the beach and some of the best surfspots in Portugal and the people working at the hostel and surfschool are both professional and nice. I want to give a special thanks to Ulisses who runs the camp flawlessly and...

I won't tell you how much tidy is the accommodation, how close is to the beach, which restaurant you could find nearby, how good are the Bruno's burger. Probably you have already read it somewhere else. Instead I would love talking about the people are running this place and make the magic happen. Special mention for Felix (THE MAN) who...

Even after two weeks at Baleal Surf Camp I am wanting to go back for more! Hostel 1 is perfectly located, with the beach, Bruno's bar, the supermarket and restaurants all within a few minutes walk. A special shout out to Ulisses Felix running the show like a pro and Pedro, the head surf coach, he's a natural teacher from...

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!!!
