You Wont Be Bored

For guests at our Portugal surf hostel, the Algarve is teaming with outdoor adventure opportunities. To best experience, the natural beauty of the Algarve, get outside, in the water, and on the trail.

Below are just some of the activities we offer here at Bura. Just get in touch with us at with any questions and to book.  

We always recommend booking in advance to avoid disappointment, particularly during busy summer weeks.

Grotto Trips

The rugged Algarve coastline consists of a series of beautiful cliffs, sea caves, and enchanting coves. While exploring the coastline on foot has its perks, there’s nothing like seeing these natural wonders form the water. For our guests at our Portugal surf hostel, there are a few different activities that provide just that experience.

From €35

By Kayak

The most popular way to explore the vast Algarve coastline is by kayak. Enjoy a leisurely paddle along the towering coastline and venture into sea caves, coves, and beaches along the way.

From €22.50

Guided Boat Tour

Ideal for small groups, a guided boat tour leaves the marina, traces the iconic coastline, and then anchors near the famous Ponta de Piedade for a breathtaking view. Book with friends or fellow guests staying at our Portugal surf hostel.



Only recommended for those with experience, on a clear day this can be the most intimate way to see the best of the caves and grottos.

From €40


A more challenging version of the kayak tour and by far our favourite way to see the grottos.  Stand up paddling can be a challenging yet rewarding mode of exploration for the guests at our Portugal surf hostel.

From €55

Surf Lessons

Our Portugal surf hostel, Bura Surfhouse, was founded by surfers to spread the love of surfing to each and every guest. If you’ve never surfed before, had a bit of experience but need to work on that pop-up, or can’t stop nosediving and need a refresher course, surf lessons are for you!! We offer lessons for all levels, which include transport, equipment hire, instructor, and even a picnic on the beach.

From €25

Surf Guiding

If you’re an experienced surfer staying with us at our Portugal surf hostel, and you’re looking to make the most out of your time in the Algarve, surf guiding is the best option for you.
