Sagres

Situated on the far western tip of Portugal, this area is exposed greatly to the wild elements thrown at it by the Atlantic. Sagres is an excellent location for those who enjoy seeing the power of nature in all its beauty. With excellent surf and wind, this is a great location for surfing and kite surfing, whilst the sheltered beaches also provide an excellent ​place for relaxing.

Activities

World renowned for its surfing, with many competitions year round and being frequented by some of the world's best surfers, Sagres is a hub for surfing. Whether you are a beginner or an expert, there are trips here for everyone. The aggressive landscape and wild nature of Sagres makes it a refreshing and popular place for yoga too, at the wind swept cliffs or in the secluded beaches.

Local Town

Sagres is the most southwestern city in Europe, overlooking the aggressive scenery of the Algarve. A typical Portuguese town which attains its nautical culture and heritage, whilst still providing modern amenities. It is a young and lively town, attracting surfers from all over the world. 

UCPA Centre

Instead of having a purpose built UCPA centre, in ​Sagres UCPA use Casa Azul Sagres - a lovely set of apartments with a BnB feel. Located just a few ​minutes ​walk away from Praia da Mareta Beach and a few minutes walk away from some nearby bars, the accommodation is well located for being close to the activity spots as well as an evening entertainment. Rooms are 2-3 beds shared between guests (twin and double rooms are available, enquire directly with the centre.)

Testimonials

  • Alongside the excellent equipment, lessons, food and accommodation, the thing that brings me back year on year is the atmosphere, as made by the people who go to UCPA.
    Elliot B
  • There is always a range of ages, nationalities, mixtures of solo travellers, couples, groups etc.  We have booked as a group of 6, a group of 36 (no joke) and even just me and my boyfriend – it works for all.

  • Action Outdoors set up a personal group page and as a group leader, I did’t have to worry about taking everyone’s payments. Each group member is responsible to pay their own way through the group page directly to Action Outdoors. Win!

  • Imagine moules mariniereier, steak (cooked how you like it) and paella just to name a few options during our week and you get a picture of how well fed you will be at UCPA.

  • One click and you’ve booked everything. No searching around for lessons, ski-hire etc. And the best thing is you can keep adding people to your group.

  • Describing the UCPA is difficult. Not because there is a lack of adjectives to adequately convey the amount of fun you’ll have while you are there, the friendliness of the instructors, the quality of the food...

  • I wish I had discovered UCPA earlier.

  • The food offers great variety, choice (several options each night), quantity (as much as you want) and quality is decent.  Cheese and yoghurts coming out of your ears, packed lunch option, afternoon tea and cake and you can drink your own wine at dinner.
