Tiny Whale Surf Lodge

Boutique Surf Lodge in the outstanding Algarve!

Stay and relax in a boutique 16-person lodge set in a peaceful rural environment. A home away from home, centrally located close to the best surf beaches in the Algarve. Forget the classic idea of surf camp and think about a luxury chalet!

Tiny Whale Surf Lodge offers a personalized approach to surf coaching and impeccable attention to every detail to deliver you a surf holiday you’ll never forget!

The Lodge

Set in the peaceful Algarve countryside, 10 minutes away from the vibrant town of Lagos, the lodge welcomes its guests with a hint of luxury. Tiny Whale offers Saturday to Saturday Surf Weeks for all levels and tastes.

The lodge has been designed with social spaces in mind: it has a large terraced garden home to an outdoor pool, jacuzzi, dining area with pizza oven, bar, lounge area with fire pit, yoga space, table tennis table, and surfboard/wetsuit area.

Great local food, wild nature, a rich ecosystem, and a welcoming traditional culture are just a plus to the good surfing of the area, making it a great destination for non-surfers alike!

Waves at Tiny Whale Surf Lodge

The outstanding coastline of the Algarve counts on plenty of waves both in its West and South Coast, depending on swell and wind direction. Renown to be one of the warmest areas of Europe due to its geographical position, the surf is all-year-round with the best waves to be found during the fall months.

The countryside of the Algarve is a gently undulating mesh of forests and small fields, leading down to an undeveloped coastline of high cliffs and long empty beaches scattered with rocks. A great variety of sandy bottom breaks and points roll at every corner and can get really epic when the right conditions line up.

Whether you’ve never surfed before or are already able to stand and turn the highly qualified surf coaches will teach you in small groups with an own personalized program!

Why We Love Tiny Whale Surf Lodge

The professional surf coaching with small personalised groups and many surf-related activities to improve your skills!

The quiet rural environment with plenty of fantastic waves within easy reach!

The high-end accommodation and the delicious healthy food! A perfect combo for a great stay!

Accommodation

All rooms at the Lodge come with everything you’ll need to be comfortable during your stay. They include fresh linen and towels along with well-thought-of finishing touches like cosy blankets and extra cushions for that extra homely feel.

Either choose the luxury of an en-suite room, a comfortable private room with a shared bathroom (with another room only), or the new luxury bell tents (with a private bathroom in the garden). All private rooms can be booked as single, double, twin. For single travelers there is also one female-only shared (max 2 guests) room and one mixed shared room (max 3 guests).

The Cuisine

The delicious and locally sourced healthy food is freshly prepared by the in-house chef to give you all the energies needed during and after a day at the beach!

Every day starts with a great healthy and nutritious breakfast to give you the energy to take on a day full of surf & yoga! Daily we seek the best waves on one of the beautiful beaches in the Algarve armed with a gourmet healthy picnic, with plenty of goodies! The in-chef prepares delicious and healthy 2-course meals for dinner, usually served with either a colourful cocktail or a regional glass of wine.

Unlimited coffee, tea, and water are included in the package. When you need to unwind, we also have an outdoor honesty bar with snacks, a selection of soft drinks and local wines and beers. The lodge can cater to all diets through prior arrangement.

Activities

Along with their facilities, the surf lodge hospitality team is on hand providing anything extra you may need throughout your stay. The Algarve with its gorgeous coastline has a lot to offer apart from surfing. The packages include several non-surfing activities such as surf skate, surf-inspired yoga and paddleboarding. Other activities and excursions are available on-site at extra charge.

Wellness

A full range of treatments is on offer to assist your recovery between surf lessons, and allow you to indulge in some much-needed relaxation during your stay. The experienced therapists work with you to create a treatment to best suit you, using a blend of classical Swedish massage with deep tissue and myofascial release techniques, to leave you feeling relaxed and re-energised for the next day in the water.

Special Weeks

Tiny Whale Surf Lodge offers exclusive women-only Roxy Women surf weeks for beginners and intermediate surfers alike. Join other like-minded ladies for a week of surf whilst enjoying the beautiful Algarve.

I run surf coaching trips to perfect, uncrowded waves and I relied on the AWAVE team to deliver for my clients a month long boat trip to the Maldives. We had great waves on an absolutley 5* boat called North Seven which I REALLY recommend you enquire about.

I was dubious at first as a few boats were changed, in for repair but James assured me correctly this was a usual thing and they would endevour to find us the very best replacement (which they did). North Seven was so new we were the third guests but the crew were super experienced and could not have given us a better service. Captain Usmaan, the Chef great food, Hasan and Azim our surf boat operators could not have worked any harder and always had a smile even after the 50th request to speed us to the line up or spend four hours cruising looking or waves.

AWAVE team were always on hand to answer any fears and smooth out any worries. The payment system using Revolut was super easy.

We did have a few hiccups with the local airlines which was resolved and partly our fault (as for a month trip we took alot of surfboards and in some cases were over weight).

Take the fear out of booking and especially group bookings by using the AWAVE team. Justin West Coaching recommended.

These guys are the BEST! Massively knowledgeable, fun and absolute shredders. I approached them asking for a UK winter getaway somewhere in the Indian Ocean and they suggested the perfect place, awesome setup with the beach a short stroll from my accommodation with 3 sick waves breaking over reefs to chose from. Real life doesn’t get much better than this. I also popped my barrel cherry in a big way on this trip so it was a truely memorable one. James also somehow wangled a boat charter to some super remote islands where we scored epic surf and landed some massive fish. James’ broken Indonesian language skills will get you places. Thanks again guys you rock.

James is a super knowledgeable surfer with a great ability to match any trip requirements to the right locations. He has arranged several trips for me and my friends in France, Morocco and more recently Indonesia. Awave have a great knowledge of all the surf spots and will go the extra mile to make sure your trip is all set up. With limited time to do this myself their service was invaluable.

Giuliana has been amazing to work with!! She was always available and answered all my questions. Thank you for all your help! We can't wait for our trip!

Fantastic service from start to finish from James and his team. After having several ‘self organised’ trips to Asia end with only a handful of good surf days I decided this time to use Awave in hope of maximising my valuable holiday time. James custom built a trip for me and my friends tailored for our abilities and requirements. There were no days wasted waiting for transfers as he organised it all from the airport to the beach. We scored pretty much every day whilst also having a surf trip that had that ‘off the beaten track’ feel we wanted. To round it off there was also a secret boat trip in the end where we surfed an awesome spot just us...Unforgettable. Will be using again.

Fantastic service and support from Giulia during our trip. During a self organised trip to Maldives, we ended up in a sketchy situation: the hotel was far from the described plus the owner 'forgot' to mention that the whole island was in lockdown for a covid emergency. I quickly realized that I would need support and the best in class. That's when I decided to use Awave! Giulia answered reactively and custom built several solutions for me and my girlfriend, based on what feasible, our budget and surfing preferences!! No other words needed. Thanks Giulia, we'll be in touch again!

A wave travel were great! They helped me organize my trip to Sumatra. I would definitely book with them again!

My friends and I recently went on a trip to the Maldives. We booked a week on the Hudhuranfushi resort which was amazing! The staff was very welcoming, flawless facilities and tasty food. One day our surf guide Ryan caught a fish and made some sashimi on the spot! I think that was pretty thoughtful! Awave agency really made sure all our needs where met as we where a big group of friends. A very personal approach and clear communication. Epic surf, great service, memories of a lifetime! I highly recommend traveling with Awave!

I had just arrived in Bali when the whole of Indonesia went into lockdown again. Despite travel restrictions such as mandatory vaccination and PCR tests, flight cancellations and even the fast ferries to the Mentawis being cancelled, Giulia tried everything to get me there. It was a hell of a trip to get there but totally worth it.

I scored pristine and empty Mentawis. The resort was affordable yet very luxurious given the remoteness. And with their great surf guide and their boat, I scored amazing empty waves!
