"Come witness what has always been our country’s faith: the Sea!"

The Experience

In Portugal, the North is known for its rigor, and the sea is no exception! Onda Pura Surf School takes you to experience the waves of Matosinhos beach, where you can find the famous right tubular. The ocean deserves respect, but Onda Pura (surf school) ensures excellent conditions for learning surf including, obviously, the necessary equipment to the sport (which is free to use after class).

This beach is covered by a busy movimented marginal from morning until the dawn of the next day, with nightlife guaranteed by bars and nightclubs that channel the young people of Porto to this area. The marginal is also commonly used to promote active and healthy life with outdoor demonstrations of activities and sports, especially during the summer.

The accommodation is guaranteed by Solar Egas Moniz Charming House & Local Experiences. Here you will not be received as a customer, but as an old friend, whom the Solar has huge stories and experiences to share about all our traditions.
Solar Egas Moniz is located in Paço de Sousa, 35 km from Matosinhos beach. This will not be a difficulty in your trip as the tour also includes the rental of a private car, as we promote the self-discovery.

In the last 2 nights you will stay in Porto city so you can explore the city, in a unique place with river view: 1872 River House. A lovely and charming 8 rooms guest house inviting us to discover the best views over Douro. The building dates back to 1872 and opened its doors in 2014, after a profound remodelling process in which the house’s original details where kept intact.

We invite you to surf the waves of the ocean in the morning and find the beauty of the North in the afternoon. There are plenty of places to visit: from the most urban, as Porto and Guimarães; to the preserved villages where lives tradition and authenticity; through the splendid view scenic Douro Wine Region, elevated to World Heritage of Unesco, as the oldest wine region in the world.
