Traditional Portuguese Village close to the waves of the Vicentina Coast!

Located in the heart of the Natural Park of Southwest Algarve, Aldeia da Pedralva is a rural village, a great starting point to discover this wave-rich area. The village has been repurposed to provide really comfortable cottages and country houses for travelers wanting to explore this beautiful region.

On top of being surrounded by many quality waves for all levels and tastes, Pedralva offers an array of activities. Take one of the 32 bikes and explore more than 300km of trails of mountain biking, enjoy great hiking, and even take diving courses. Here you can feel the unique energy of a traditional Portuguese village, with countryside, sea, and nature in its purest state.

The Resort

Pedralva is a Portuguese village located between the countryside and the sea, surrounded by nature. Located in the municipality of Vila do Bispo, Algarve, one of the warmest areas of Europe.

In the village of Pedralva once lived 100 people, but in the past 25 years, this fell to only 9 inhabitants. In 2006, the village was repurposed to become an eco-focused village escape with all of the cottages and accommodations having been lovingly restored to provide quality holiday accommodation in one of Europe’s most beautiful regions!

Wifi is available in the Hotel and in the Villas.

Waves at Aldeia Da Pedralva

The southwestern corner of the Iberian Peninsula offers a great variety of surf breaks and the warmest climate in Europe. The small, lively town of Sagres is well located to take advantage of the wide swell window of Cape St-Vincent, where the west and south coasts meet, creating a perfect corner for both beginners and experts to revel in the fun waves.

Average wintertime swells on the west coast are around 8-10ft, with 12-15ft maximum, whilst summer rarely goes flat and can get up to double overhead. In larger swells, the south coast offers perfect shelter with offshore winds. The Southern Coast is usually flat in summer but delivers great conditions in winter and the shoulder months.

Aldeia da Pedralva partner surf school offers surf lessons and surf guiding for surfers of all levels!

We booked a trip to Niyama Maldives (13 - 20 May 2022) with Awave.

Before deciding to go to Niyama I had close contact with Giulia about what would be the best resort for that season. Giulia responded almost immediately and gave us good and detailled advice about the surf and of course also about the resort.

We had a great trip! The resort was just prefect as well as the service! Unfortunately the waves were a bit choppy and the wind cross/ onshore, but that's mother nature....... (and May is a very difficult month for the Maldives). We still surfed every day in fun size waves and had a great time.

Would definitely recommend Niyama as well as booking with Awave!

Great communication, fantastic care and attention from James who is very knowledgeable and approachable, and the product recommended to us as an alternative, Ayada, was a real paradise. We had very high expectations and we were really impressed with everything (apart from the the quality of the surfboards for hire). :)
