home by the sea
Mellowmove Surfcamp is located at the “gateway” to the World Surfing Reserve of Ericeira and is only 100 meters away from the bay “São Lourenço”.
By the Sea is where I want to be
It is hardly possible to live closer to the sea! The slightly elevated position, just 100 meters above the cliff, offers a truly impressive ocean panorama. Here you can enjoy the comfortable ambience of our premium surf camp and at the same time enjoy the view of the Atlantic Ocean and the bay of São Lourenço.
The surf camp covers an area of 1700m² and offers all amenities for an optimal surf vacation. While during the day the pool area is the social center of the camp, in the evening people meet in the cozy courtyard and at the bar. Those who prefer it chilled out are welcome to simply watch the camp happenings from the hammock.
A number of amenities also await you in the spacious indoor area of the main house. At our Mellow Bar we serve exclusively for our guests tasty cocktails, Portuguese wines and coffee. In the camp store you can try on our latest collection or just get some waterproof sunscreen.
Or maybe you just feel like a cozy evening of TV in the lounge to conserve your energy for the next surf day. Before it gets dark, however, it is almost mandatory to do some sunset watching on the cliff in front of the camp. The sunsets here are simply magnificent…
World Surfing Reserve
In our opinion, the region of Ericeira is the pearl of the European surf map! The place to be!
Portugal is in our opinion the most beautiful and relaxed surfing country in Europe! The friendly mentality of the Portuguese, the breathtaking coastal scenery and the exceptional quality of the waves make Portugal the “place to be”. The Ericeira region was named Europe’s first and only “World Surfing Reserve” in 2011 and proudly holds this title.
Today’s small town of Ericeira grew from a nondescript fishing village on the west coast of Portugal and does not bear a sea urchin in its coat of arms for nothing. What is really remarkable is how much the original and authentic of the little town has been preserved. You will experience an inspiring mix of young, modern surf scene and the traditional life and customs of the fishing families.
Lisbon & More
If you want to make further circles around the camp, you will find in all directions. Portugal’s charming capital, Lisbon, is just 40 minutes away. We think the city is brilliant because it has something for everyone. Whether you want to party, are interested in culture or just want to stroll around. Lisbon will grow on you!
In just 50 minutes you can reach Obidos, the famous medieval city, which is only accessible on foot. A walk around this historic jewel on the city walls is certainly the highlight of any visit.
About half an hour south of the camp you will find Sintra. Affectionately referred to by historians as “the Disneyland of the Middle Ages,” this colorful UNESCO World Heritage Site is a must-see.
