Well it depends on which area of Portugal you want to head to. Sleeping on the beach is not allowed but you can always try. Otherwise some spots have nearby campsites.
Let me know where you are thinking of going and I will try and help. Vi ses

Peniche, Ericeira and Figueira da Foz all have campsites  close to the surf. Those are the ones I know about but there must be loads more. They're cheap too (in fact everything is much cheaper than Norway!) so I really wouldn't bother trying to sleep on the beach. If you don't drive, or you're not planning to, you might be better off staying in a surf camp. Hope that helps! Email me if you want any more information.

Close to Porto there are also a lot of campsites and a few surfcamps. Public transportation takes to the beach and Oporto´s CBD. I´ve seen a few norwegen people around.
