  • The Jho' La Surf Camp was exactly how i imagined it. Francisco is a great host and a genuine person who has your best interests at heart, making for a thoroughly enjoyable stay. Francisco's home cooking is awesome, the surf school is excellent and the yoga is a perfect way to loosen up after a surf. Luz is a great chilled out location right by the sea so makes for a perfect set up. Would 10/10 recommend. Thanks for a great time.

  • What a great experience my boyfriend and I had at Jho'La surf camp this week. The host, Francisco and his partner were so welcoming. Francisco cooked for us twice and we enjoyed socialising over some good food and red wine kindly provided by them. We surfed most days, the surf school instructors were so patient and have given me the surf bug. We felt so at home in the villa, it was perfectly located for walking into Luz (3 min walk to beach) . We will certainly be back! Thank you guys so much,10/10!!

  • I BELIEVE I CAN SURF I had one of the best holidays in Jho'la surf camp. The place is very clean and furnished with a real taste. It offers a perfect combination of chill and fun holidays. Once you go there, you will feel like you have good local friends hosting you and trying their best to make you feel comfortable. It is a 5 mins walk to the beach and the food is amazing. I also have to point out how awesome the surfing instructors were. I didn't think I could stand up and slide in 5 days but they proved me wrong. I will come back when I feel a strong "saudade" 🙂 Obrigada !
