Rapture Surfcamp Portugal is a beachside surf school and camp in sunny Ericeira, Portugal.

With views of the beach and surf, Rapture Surfcamp Portugal offers the winning combination of a fantastic surf school, great food, and modern accommodation. Set in a large white-washed Portuguese-style house just meters from Foz do Lizandro beach in Ericeira, Rapture Surfcamp is a perfect place for a surf holiday in Portugal.

Originally a small traditional fishing village, Ericeira has blossomed into a holiday hotspot and surfing mecca due to its picturesque views, beautiful beaches, and density of surf breaks.

Designated as the first World Surf Reserve in Europe by the Save the Waves Coalition, Ericeira and its surrounding area is a super fun surf zone with a variety of waves ranging from beach breaks to powerful reef breaks.

Whether you’re just learning to surf or an established ripper, Rapture Surfcamp will make sure you’re matched with the best waves for your ability and preference.

For beginners just learning to surf, the camp’s qualified, licensed surf instructors are experts at teaching the proper technique and knowledge so you have a solid foundation for surfing. The closest surf break (which you can see from the camp) is Foz do Lizandro, which is a long and mellow wave that is perfect for beginners.

For intermediate to advanced surfers, the Rapture surf guides will take you to the best breaks for the conditions, so you’ll always be on the best waves at the best times.

The surf camp offers a couple types of accommodation: private apartments, which are a great option for big groups, couples, or families, or private rooms and dorm rooms in their main surf house. The main house is modern and clean, with beautiful ocean and countryside views and plenty of communal areas for lounging and hanging out in-between surf sessions.
