Thank you for your interest in coming to stay & experience a week surfing with us!

Our office hours are 9am - 5pm GMT and we aim to respond to all inquires within 4 hours



In the mean time here's some useful information about a trip with us:

Our packages run from Saturday to Saturday

We know surf holidays are the best they can be when there’s a solid start and finish date to the groups trip for the week. You can arrive a day earlier (Friday) and leave a day later (Sunday) if there’s flight options for these days that are more convenient for you.


We’re serious about surf coaching!

Don’t worry you’re not signing yourself up for a week of 6am starts and intensive paddling drills! We just want to provide the best possible weeks coaching you’ll ever receive, and that includes highly qualified and dedicated surf coaches, a tailored surf coaching plan for the week just for you, plenty of video coaching and a variety of modern techniques to make you a better and more knowledgeable surfer.


Our Surf Lodge 

We’re not your normal surf camp. We’ve upgraded our accommodation & food offering from previous years and are gradually updating our website to reflect all the changes. Forget cramped dorms & squashed private rooms and think sleek, stylish & airy boutique hotel. More info & pictures on our new lodge plus any of our current deals can be found by following us on Facebook & Instagram.


What’s included and pricing   

Virtually everything you’ll need is included, apart from some spending money for two evenings out in our local town of Lagos and airport transfers. A full list of inclusions and prices are featured at the bottom of the package you are interested in on our website.


And finally….

We know booking holidays can be tricky and it’s sometimes nice to speak to a real person. 7 days a week from 9am-5pm we have a knowledgeable team available if you need to chat with us at any point.

The Tiny Whale Team 



Our boutique lodge is situated in the peaceful Algarvian countryside, 10 minutes drive from the city of Lagos, known for its walled old town, cliffs, beaches, and bustling atmosphere.


The local area, in the middle of nature, has great opportunities for a variety of activities and our lodge provides the perfect setting for anyone who loves their privacy, and to stay in a quiet and green surrounding. The pool, jacuzzi, chill-out room, fire pit, and terraced garden give plenty of space to relax and energize between activities. Within a short easy cab-drive or Uber, you're in the middle of vibrant Lagos.

The lodge also benefits from fast access to both the South and West coastlines, making the exploration of multiple surf spots nice and easy.

We're also lucky enough to be surrounded by quaint, antiquated Portuguese villages where authentic food and culture is served daily, we'll drive through many of these on the way to the beach but would definitely recommend a visit on the non-surfing day if you have energy!


Lagos is a cozy, historic, and lively seaside surf town with beautiful cliff-lined beaches. The city is a scenic town full of charm and character, and it has a buzzing nightlife. Find a great variety of restaurants in this historic town, one of the days during the week program we will host a diner into town. The dramatic rock formations at Ponte de Piedade and the nearby steep wooden steps leading down to Praia da Camilo is one of the most photographed attractions of Portugal. 

Proximity to Surf Spots

A short drive takes us to some of the best surf spots in Europe with pristine sandy beaches. The Algarve has incredible sometimes hidden spots with something for everyone, that's why our location is ideal as we are within a 10 to 30-minute drive away from the best surf spots.

The beach transfers are included in your stay with us. There's no way to avoid a drive in the Algarve, as there is a diversity of beautiful beaches and different factors that will make it necessary to check on a daily basis on which beach will have the best conditions. 

Flight information

The nearest airport is in Faro and just an hour's drive away. Lagos is about a 3.5-hour drive South from Lisbon airport. We can always help you arrange your transfers to our boutique lodge.
