Our surfcamp Vila Catarina is only a 5-10 minute drive outside of Lagos in a quiet and nice neighborhood. The villa is surrounded by lush gardens featuring a swimming pool and a sauna – for the colder months of the year. The villa contains different bedrooms in the house and bungalows in the garden.

All rooms comply with the highest standard and have their own bathrooms. The luxurious villa features a large living room with a TV, DVD player, stereo, and pool table to ensure a relaxing environment after a hard day at the beach! As many guests had to find out, leaving can be very difficult and return visits are very common.

TSE – The Surf Experience is a family affair and staying at Vila Catarina is a perfect chance to participate in the surf culture on all levels. As soon as you arrive, Iris, Urs, and the whole team will be working hard on and off of the beach to ensure that your surf experience with us will be one to remember!

Connie’s world-famous skills in the kitchen have to be sampled to be believed, her truly first-class cooking will blow you away. Vegetarian, vegan, any allergies? No problem at all! On 2 nights a week, we will drive you into town and you will be able to choose one of the numerous great restaurants. Most people usually stay in town for one or two drinks as well to get to know the famous Lagos nightlife…
