The surf lodge isn't located in Luz, but somewhere on the way to the next town, a 20 minutes walk. You can get... More

I went to Jah Shaka on a uni surf trip and had the best week. Staff were all really friendly and the food was delicious. We had surf lessons every day (apart from one rest day), which were fun. The instructors were great and laid out lunch for us on the beach each day. We had a day of video... More

So, I went to South-Portugal by myself because I wanted sun, surfing and fun and good people. Oh, and good food (duh).

I cannot rate Jah Shaka highly enough. I stayed at their new villa for a week with my university surfing club and 3 nights in their smaller lodge.

We have stayed in Jah Shaka lodge for 6 days. To be objective, we are gonna list everything that we liked and what we didn't like.

However, our stay... More
