Portugal on a budget

My friend and I are going to be in Portugal for early april and we're looking to center our trip around some surf. There are obviously lots of spots to choose from, but none are jumping out. We're obviously looking for good and reliable waves, but also a decent nightlife.  Also, I'm looking into giving kite-surfing a try while there, and would absolutely love it if I could find a crag to get some climbing in as well.

Given all that, are there any particular regions that jump out at any of you? We're flying into Lisbon then probably heading south. Also, we're on a student budget, so what are the hostels like? Are there good campgrounds?

This is a very vague post, I know. And I'm sure most of the comments will contradict others, but nonetheless, any suggestions would help.

Cheers.

Hi Fraser,
I dont know about Lisbon etc,
I was in Anadlucia, not much crags where the surf is.
Some near Tarifa I think,

I am going to the North Coast Galicia in May time,
I think there is some climbing/bouldering there and farily consistant surf as it gets to spring. I dont know though not been yet....

hi!
I recommend to you the zone of sintra (Praia Grande, praia das maçãs) here you have the nature reserve sintra - cascais, the historical center of sintra, very good night life, and a few beautiful beaches. . If you need more help feel free to e-mail me. Will be happy to help.

Portugal is the place to be if you're on a budget. Food and beer is cheap and it's no problem if you sleep in a van somehwere as opposed to France. Don't know anything about climbing but a good spots for wind AND waves is Guincho.

Looking for surf spots in Portugal ?
