Pontoeste sits between a natural reserve and a bio-protected area. There are many excellent lodging options, for all tastes and budgets.
The Farmhouse is where we host our students. A short drive from the beach, or 20 minutes by bike. Nights here are quiet, and you'll wake up to the day with the smell of fresh bread and flowers.
If you're into camping, this one is a must. In the Nature Reserve, shaded by very tall pine trees, you may have an adventurous sleep hearing the pines falling around your tent. It also has nice bungalows but we highly recommend camping!
It is only 5km away from Torreira beach. If you're too lazy to bike those kilometres (the perfect surf warm up), we can pick you up (free transfers).
Camping from €10 a night.
