surf camp holiday

Make your holiday Magik with Magikvanilla surf camp!

Magikvanilla surf camp is based in Ericeira, a beautiful small seaside town and ideal holiday destination, 40km north of Lisbon. In 2011, it was made a world surfing reserve, first in Europe & second in the world, to help protect the 8km of stunning beaches & waves.

Our Surf Camp is just a 7 minute walk to those beaches and a 4 minute walk from the center of town, where you will find lots of restaurants selling a fantastic variety of food, many cafes and bars, shops, supermarkets and a night club (that stays open until 6am in the summer).

The amazing surf

This beautiful town with its cobbled streets, traditional houses and welcoming locals is blessed with long summers – over 280 days of sunshine every year.

The Camp

Winning the Certificate of Excellence 2015, portrays the level of commitment our team has to make your holidays truly Magik.

The Surf Camp is in a great location, gathering the best of both worlds. On one hand, it’s a walking distance from the beach and the town center, but on the other hand it’s secluded enough to give you a sense of privacy. We host 28 people a week in a mix of doubles, twins, and dorms of 3, 4 & 5 people.

Meet new friends while you learn to surf!

For 3 hours of your day you will be surfing the waves of the world surf reserve, but after that you can enjoy your time in many different ways, we offer bikes to rent, yoga and sports lessons or full relaxing massages on demand as well as surf equipment rental and BBQ’s on a Wednesday night.

Our location is privileged. Not only are you close to Lisbon, but you are close to one of the most stunning villages in Portugal, Sintra – a World Heritage Site granted by UNESCO in 1991. We are also close to the most westerly point in Europe, Cabo da Roca. Trips to both these of these places are run weekly.

The town itself has a lot to give as well, during the day you can either enjoy the beach, the bars, and cafes, or the skate park. At night, the town takes on another life, the months of summer bring live bands to the streets and often you will have people drinking and dancing to the sound of traditional Portuguese music.

The town also hosts a reggae festival and Lisbon has at least three that bring to the stage big headlines, you can check our website for all the info about these events.
