FAQs

Our surf camp is based in the north of Portugal, on a little beach village called Lavra in the municipality of Matosinhos just north of Porto. Click here for Google maps link.

Our surf camp is inside the camping park of Orbitur Angeiras, a campsite certified and recognized by the quality of its services and its facilities. It is located about 7 mins walk  of the beach. It has shower blocks with continuous hot water, a mini-market, restaurant, bar, free swimming-pool for users, and football, volleyball and tennis courts. Check the camping park website here.

The closest airport is Porto Airport (OPO) which is about 10 mins drive from the camp.

The easiest and quickest way to get to the surfcamp is by car or taxi. Once you arrive at the campsite Orbitur Angeiras, go to the reception and let them know that you’re staying with I Surf Portugal surf camp, they will guide you to the surf camp. In the evening, you will meet with the rest of the crew and the other guests to enjoy a welcome meal together!


Taxi from Porto Airport (easiest and quickest): There are always many taxis at the airport. You can get a taxi from there directly without booking. If you prefer booking one in advance you can always use the Uber app. The price of a taxi is between 10€ and 15€.

Public transport from Porto Airport or Porto center (longest): Although it is not far at all, it is quite complicated and long to get to the surf camp by public transport as you have to get to Porto center by metro from the airport and then take a bus (which has many stops before reaching the final destination).

From the airport, take the metro (purple line) to "Sete Bicas". From there take the bus line 104 to Orbitur Angeiras. You can click here to have more details.

Arriving by car: If you arrive by car, enter the following address into your navigation system: Camping Orbitur Angeiras, Rua de Angeiras - Lavra, 4455-039 Matosinhos.
