The village is surrounded by volcanic black sandy beaches, ideal for those who want to take surfing lessons and learn to surf in Madeira Island.

In Madeira Island there are almost no crowds, in fact not many local surfers. The north coast has the highest consistency and exposure to the North Atlantic swells and the widest range of waves and various levels of surfing.

The island offers a vast array of waves just minutes away, from long and soft waves suitable for beginners to extreme surfing conditions for "big wave surfers".

For beginner surfers, the most popular spots in Porto da Cruz are all black sand:

  • Alagoa - A small bay, just two minutes walk from the surf field and the surf school. Ideal for learning and surfing lessons as it is protected from the big waves.

  • Maiata - It is about ten minutes away from the surfcamp. It is the largest and most beautiful sandy beach in Madeira, it can withstand waves of up to 2 metres.

By practicing yoga, you will naturally transfer this to the waves by improving the bases of surfing, from beginners to advanced surfers, such as FOCUS - STRENGHT - BALANCE - FLEXIBILITY.

Yoga is suitable for everyone and can be helpful in a healthy lifestyle.
