Salty – Madeira Water Activities is a surf school that works in Madeira Island. We work all over the Island so we can find the best surf spots for your surfing level.
Beginners surf lessons can be done in a few surf spots all over Madeira Island. There are 4 beginners surf spots that we use for our surf lessons.
In all the beginners surf spots you will find black sand. The sand is black because it is from volcanic origin Island.
The beginners surf spots in Madeira Island are located in: Porto da Cruz, Machico or Seixal.
Porto da Cruz:
– Alagoa beach – Small beach with a mix between small rocks and dark sand but some times we have a full sandy beach.
– Maiata beach – This is the one of the biggest beach with sand in our Island. Some time it get’s also a mix between rocks and sand.
– There is a sand mixed with some rocsk in Machico perfect to have beginners surf lesson but these wave works with a south swell and just works time to time.
– Just by the harbour in Seixal we have a sand beach perfect to go for a first surf lesson on the north coast of Madeira
All these waves are the only places that are suitable for a beginners surf lessons in Madeira Island. Depending on the weather and swell (waves) forecast we move from one to other spot so we can get you to the better one on your surf lesson with us.
Our beginners surf lessons are more then only surfing. The important part for us is that you can enjoy your surf session and know a little bit more abou our culture.

… what a day of surfing. Before I speak of this day, I must perhaps say how my previous day ended. Good waves in a memorable afternoon. Two hours of good surf in good company, a poncha to finish the day with the sun going down and a forecast of good waves for the next day.
I woke up at 06:30 in the morning to go surfing again to the same spot that i had surfed the day before. Full of will and anxiety to get there and know the true verdict of the conditions of the waves. With the sun still to rise and conditions not perfect but more than acceptable for a good session of surf, light wind and waves of 1.5m. 4 people inside the water and good barrels! It was a good 2.30 hours of surf. The tide was changing and i changed also the surf spot. The north coast of the island was going to be more or less with the same conditions but instead of right waves to surf i surfed some nice lefts. Sun, good waves and lots of fun on the mix for the 3 hours surfing.
Madeira Island has the conditions to provide good experiences for all levels of surf, from the beginners to the pros. It is very important to surf together and that is where Salty comes in, we have classes for beginners to surf guide for pros.
