An authentic Portuguese surf holiday

"Esmoriz is an authentic fishing town experience with fantastic waves. You will find yourself in the heart of a truly friendly and down-to-earth fishing town, unlike the conventional touristic experience. We know that surfing may be your top priority when visiting Portugal, but there are so many other things you can do while you come here."

The surf

Peak swell
Variable swell

Esmoriz is known for being one of the best surf spots in Northern Portugal. It's an exposed beach break that has inconsistent surf with no particular seasonal pattern. Offshore winds are from the east southeast. Groundswells and wind swells are equally likely and the best swell direction is from the west. The beach breaks offer lefts and rights.

The lodge

We welcome you to our home in the lovely village of Esmoriz, a surfing paradise overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. A few steps from the villa, there are beaches and, on the other way, the countryside, offering plenty of possibilities. If you are looking for a peaceful location to stay: this is the place for you!

During your stay, you will be free to choose among different activities: surfing all day long, enjoying the beaches with long walks, cycling inland, or relaxing in the pool area. Moreover, we propose tours around Esmoriz’s area, for example, to Porto. We love spending time with our guests in the evening with shared dinners or barbecue parties.

Our guesthouse comes with two private suites and two double bedrooms with single beds. Meet the other guests in the shared areas of the house: our cozy living room and our fully equipped kitchen. Bring your laptop with you, if you have some work to do, you can benefit from some perfect corners of the house. Our pool and the outdoor area with comfortable lounges and a barbecue invite us to chill and spend some fun evenings together.

We have a large collection of boards, wetsuits, bikes, skates and mats for you to grab!

At the OLA Guesthouse, we speak English, Portuguese and Italian. Feel free to ask us if you need more information or help with the local language. We can’t wait to meet you.

Ola Guesthouse

Leading trips since 2019

My name is Alessandro and I’m the owner and the host of OLA Guesthouse, I’m Italian and in 2011 I surfed my first wave here in Esmoriz, a small village close to Porto, which stole my heart since then I have come back every summer to work in a surf camp. In 2019 I decided to make the big step and open my guesthouse, it was a lot of hard work, but now I can finally enjoy my house and the guests visiting us.

My girlfriend and I are two young surf enthusiasts and this is the property we put our hearts and souls into. We maintain the villa regularly with our guests’ best interests and comfort in mind. Everything you’ll need is provided in the villa, and we live in a separate house on the same property – we are there when you need us and won’t even bother you when you don’t.
