Learn to surf

Portugal’s west coast is one of the best spots in Europe to find perfect surfing conditions for all abilities, and has so many golden beaches that overcrowding never becomes a problem. Take a surfing class and you’ll be using the best gear on the market while being trained up by instructors with more than 15 years of experience, so no matter your skill level, you’ll be mastering the waves in no time.

Paddle board

If want to hit the waves in a different way, Stand Up Paddle Boarding, or SUP might be for you. It’s just you, your big board and an oar, and as well as being an incredible core strength workout, it’s a fun and unique way to explore the Atlantic from an upright perspective.

Visit the Venice of Portugal

Aveiro | Day 4

Situated on the cusp of Portugal’s huge system of lagoons, Aveiro is a colourful and seriously underrated ‘mini-venice.’ And like Venice, it’s mazy canals are best explored by boat. No, not gondolas - these are called moliceiros, and though they were originally used for harvesting seaweed, they now exist so you can glide through the city in style.
