Portugal

Portugal is always worth a trip. From the capital Lisbon with its rich culture and the stunning landscapes to the most beautiful beaches on the coast. Our WaveSisters Surfcamp is located in Costa da Caparica with the longest stretch of beach near Lisbon and at its south end you find a natural protected area.

Costa Caparica is about 10km south from Lisbon just on other side of the river Tejo and it takes only 30min by bus from Lisbon. You will find the best weather in this region with a nice climate in spring, summer and autumn, ideal to enjoy the sun and the good life. Come along and enjoy the waves, the happiness of yoga and a "Galão" café with a Pastel de Natas (traditional cream cake) with us and other like-minded people.

Costa da Caparica

Costa  da Caparica or now just called „Costa“ by the Portuguese, is becoming more and more popular -not only by surfers- and is considered THE beach in Lisbon area. South of Costa, still the same beach, after 10km, the natural park „Arriba Fósssil da Costa da Caparica“ starts  and has another 20km of beach and an unspoiled forest inland.

Best weather, perfect waves with relaxed atmosphere, plenty of space in stunning nature, and on top near to Lisbon are the reasons for us to move our camp to Costa. The special flair of Costa also comes from the long promenade with plenty of cafes, bars and restaurants to have beautiful sunsets and chill outs.

Lisbon

There’s too much to tell about Lisbon to even start here. But just to give you a very quick overview: The city was built on seven hills. Capital of Portugal, rich in culture and sights. The oldest district, the "Alfama", with its little streets and places is home to the famous "Fado" bars. The "barrio alto" is the center for young people and full of little shops, restaurants and plenty of bars and night life. The "barrio baixa" the real centre of the city invites to stroll, shop and enjoy Portuguese traditions.

Metro

Airport – Costa Caparica

Short Cut: From the airport you take the red and then the yellow Metro to „Campo Pequeno“. From there the Bus 161 is running to Costa Caparica:

Full explanation: Take the red Metro line from the airport in the direction "S.Sebastião" until stop: "Saldanha". Continue on the yellow line with direction "Limiar" for the next stop "Campo Pequeno". Follow the signs Campo Peqeno to the surface. The Metro works from 6:30am to 1:00am and a one way journey costs about 1.40€. You need to buy a travel card "viva viagem card" for 0.50€ and charge it with the ticket.

At Campo Pequeno you take the Bus 161 of the bus company TST to Costa Caparica. The Busstop is in the Av Berna only 50m away. Unfortunately there's no bus sign anymore for the 161. The bus runs every 20-30min and costs 3,25€ (4,10€ at night) to be paid in the bus. Because it's a different company you can't pay with your "viva vaigem card". The bus runs from 6h/7h to 22h. So make sure your flight does not arrive or leave to late or to early!

Another possibility would be take the metro to Cais do Sodré (change in Alameda to green line) and take the boat to Cacilhas. The boat costs 1,20€ and has to be payed by "viva viagem card". This line runs from 5.30h -1.40h and is a good option for early morning or late night. From Cacilhas habour you take the bus TST 135rapido (7-22h) or the 124 (5.30-1.20h) to Costa da Caparica.
