Welcome to our sunny pool chillout area, the hotspot to hang out, get some tan and enjoy a cool drink. We have sun all day long here.We also have a great bar with a fine selection of drinks, beers and cocktails. You chill at the pool, we serve you cold drinks. Since 2021 we have an own farm with 6.000 m² to produce our own veggies and fruits. Fresher than that is impossible.

The highlight of the week: CLIFF SURF BBQ. We turn on the barbecue and put on the tasteful meat and a lot of nice veggies. Can you smell the fire already?

Surfskate is a skateboard for surfing on the street! The special front truck allows movements similar to surfing. The movements are absolutely intuitive and easy to learn – we show you how!


Cliff Surf House offers best surf lessons for beginners and intermediates. Our guest are allocated into groups based on their ability level. As a result you are surfing with others of similar ability, to boost your progress and ensure your safety in the water. We teach maximum five students per surf coach.We teach in English – but don’t worry if you don’t speak this language because we always find a way to communicate with you.

With 300+ days of amazing waves and un-crowded waters, nearly everyday is ideal for surfing in Santa Cruz. For beginners and intermediate surfers, there are several breaks with soft rolling waves over a sand bottom.Surfing is one of the most complex and difficult sports out there. No two waves are the same. We will teach you about winds, tides, swells, currents, surfboard shapes, forecasts, rules in the water and everything you need to be ready to go to the water without your coach.
Surf lessons included in the Surf Package are held from Monday to Friday. Surf lessons on the weekend count as extra lessons and are charged. The schedule for the lessons is not fixed, but based on tides and overall surf conditions. Surf lesssons are approximately 2 hours long and surf equipment, as well as insurance, are included. One day per week we film the surf lesson, break down the footage, and do a feedback session with you and your coach. Viewing yourself on video will help to a better understanding of your moves. It’s the key to improve your surfing. And it’s also very funny as well.

During the summer there is always something going on in Santa Cruz: Events, shows, night markets, festivals, sunset long boarding sessions and of course parties. Oh, and you shouldn’t miss the Festa da Póvoa, the yearly village fair with dinner, games, live music and „bailarico“, a Portuguese dance.

20 minutes south is Ericeira, a charming fishing town, which is famous as it was chosen in 2011 to be one of the eight World Surfing Reserves, the only one in Europe.

Santa Cruz is located on the quality gold coast. That means more than 10km long beaches with the official label “gold quality”! Best water quality and the cleanest beaches at Portugals coasts are guaranteed. The blue flags are proving this!

The closest beach is just 15 minutes walking. To the centre of Santa cruz takes about 30 minutes walking, and there you’ll find grocery stores, supermarkets, cafés, restaurants and a few bars. We have bikes and e-scooters to rent if you don’t feel like walking.
