Cliff Surf Camp
Settled just a 2 minute walk from the breathtaking coastline of the Atlantic Ocean, CLIFF surfcamp is the place to be if you are searching for an offbeat destination, away from tourist crowds.
Our spacious 3-level house with sunny balconies was designed to become your secret holiday escape. It has its own on-site wellness studio, lounge and bar with a shaded deck and chilled out tunes.
It’s our mission to make sure that this place has everything you need for a smooth and pleasant stay.
CLIFF surfcamp is a dream project of two lifelong friends that opened its doors in May 2016.
The idea of starting a surf camp traveled in Stefan and Tiago’s minds since their childhood but it’s not until 2015 that they decide to bring it alive.
The mission of CLIFF surfcamp is to make this world a happier place through surf lifestyle and friendship. Surf, yoga, nature, delicious food and good vibes – that’s CLIFF’s answer to routine and common life.
Here, everyone will find all the necessary ingredients to compose their own fabulous holiday recipe!

If you still have strength to showcase your dance moves, feel free to join us at the dance floor of the local bar. Or just for a “digestivo” (aka schnapps).
See it as a workshop where everyone participates. You’ll go to the local fresh market in Santa Cruz, meet the old ladies in their stands (which will challenge your communication skills – you’ll understand why once you get there 😜) and buy fresh vegetables, fruits, fish and meat. Think global, buy local is the spirit, or we wouldn’t live in a small town surrounded by farms and green houses.
