The Lodge

Mauka Lodge sits on more than an acre of natural forest, where the scent of the pine trees and the songs of the local birds allow an effortless connection to nature.

The stylish surf-inspired decoration is influenced by our lifestyle as well as our culture, but also hints of our dreams and aspirations.

Music lends a strong influence at Mauka Lodge where you will find guitars, basses, djembes and more… All available to play, or listen to others play.

Our Rooms

We have 4 tastefully appointed rooms that can accommodate up to 8 guests.

All the rooms are cozy & comfortable – we want you well rested for the next days’ activities!

A baby crib can be arranged at no additional cost – just tell us when making your booking.


After a long day riding waves, we like to chill as much as you do.

Comfortable hammocks and puffs let you read a book, play some music, or just relax with that cold beer or glass of Portuguese wine.

As we love sharing our traditions, we have made available a selection of Portuguese wines from different regions of our country.

Our outdoor area has a BBQ zone, tranquil terrace, seating areas and a fire pit for evening music nights & gatherings.

We also have facilities to wash your equipment & wetsuits, as well as grab a refreshing outside shower.

WI-FI is complementary and works well throughout the entire lodge.

The Waves

Did we mention we have great waves?

Mauka Lodge is located in the famous surfing city of Ericeira, Europe’s first World Surfing Reserve!

Ericeira’s coastline stretches for 4km and has 7 separate surf spots. Well known breaks such as Ribeira d’Ilhas, Coxos and Foz do Lizandro are only 5-7 minutes away by car.

Another famous Portuguese surf city – Peniche – is around 45-50 minutes by car. If it’s happening up there, it’s worth the drive!


Looking for something else to do?

You want to do something different, or just have a break from the water for a while?

Grab one of our mountain bikes and hit the trails around the lodge.  Or try a yoga class with our qualified instructor.

You can also book yourself a well deserved, relaxing massage.

For a bit of fun, hop on our slackline and see how good your balance really is!
