Garrett McNamara Experience
Here’s your chance to learn to surf from a true legend who pioneered big wave surfing in Portugal and holds the record for the largest wave ever surfed. Garrett will offer private surf lessons, clinics on sea survival and ocean safety, and fireside chats on all things surfing. Plus, he’ll get you up close with the ocean’s giants during his exclusive Nazaré Experience. It’ll change your life.
Water Sports & Sailing
CostaTerra watersports activities range from snorkeling and diving to paddleboarding and sailing. We also offer semi-weekly catamaran cruises on the Sado River for unique opportunities to see the region’s famed dolphins as you journey along the stunning Arrábida coastline.

Our world-class equestrian center will bring to life the beauty of Portugal’s rich sporting traditions with private stables and club-owned horses for lessons and trail rides through the pines and along the coast. We’ve also partnered with the famed Vale Do Manantio hunting estate to offer partridge and wild boar hunts to our members.
