Location

Praia da Rocha in Portugal in the Algarve is one of the largest sports beaches in Europe. The huge sandy beach is located directly on the Atlantic Ocean and in the immediate vicinity of the beautiful, typical rocky coast. Accordingly, beautiful hours can be enjoyed away from the beach volleyball in the great ambience of the cliffs. The beach offers an incredible amount of space for sports activities, so that many surfing providers as well as providers for other water sports can be found here. If not here, where else should we organize one of our beach volleyball camps? On site we have various information about all other sports possibilities and in the evening you can find one or the other bar if you want.

Here you can find more information and impressions about the beach in the Algarve: Praia da Rocha

SCHEDULE

THE WEEK AT A GLANCE

 

  • Saturday: Arrival day with check-in & get-to-know-you tournament
  • Sunday: Optional joint hike to the most beautiful beach of the Algarve, Praia dos Três Irmãos, in the morning or Free Play, "Beat / Team-Up the Coaches" in the afternoon, official welcome in the evening.
  • Monday to Thursday: Training (mornings)
  • Monday to Friday: tournaments (afternoons, except Friday all day)
  • Saturday: After breakfast departure

 

Saturday is the arrival and departure day of a camp week (for 2023 our trips will be extended by one night, from 6 to 7 nights). At the beginning of your camp, you can check in with our event team on Saturday from 3pm, before we then hold a get-to-know-you tournament from around 4:30pm. Don't worry if you arrive later: the mode is chosen in such a way that you can join or quit at any time. On Sunday morning we offer a hike to the most beautiful beach of the Algarve, the Praia dos Três Irmãos, which you can book optionally.

 

In the afternoon there will be a "Beat / Team-Up the Coaches" event, so you can already play against/with our coaches & trainers before the camp or watch with a cool drink, before it comes to the official welcome around 6:30 pm.

 

SPORT
The training sessions always take place in the morning from Monday to Thursday (in each case in two blocks - so e.g. parents can train staggered). In the afternoon, from Monday to Thursday, various tournaments are held. Friday is completely reserved for our big final tournament. You can participate in all our tournaments - no matter if you have a camp pass or a training pass - for free if you register in time. And who knows, maybe there will be another match of the coaches in the evening after the tournaments, which you can watch with a cool drink in your hand. Of course there will be enough courts for free play during the trainings and tournaments (for this you need the camp pass).


Add-On:
On Monday and Friday we offer, outside the regular training and tournament times, additional special beach volleyball workshops for a fair fee.

Events

Not only on but also off the court we have a lot to offer at our beach volleyball camp at Praia da Rocha. Those who have not yet exhausted themselves enough after a long day on the beach can look forward to relaxing bars and other locations in the evenings. In order to keep the special beach me feeling even after the training, we always try to go to a common location in the evening to get to know each other better and to exchange ideas. The hosts always look forward to the Beach me crew and offer cool drinks in a relaxed atmosphere at fair prices. At the end of each week, we turn the night into day again and really let it rip at the legendary closing party.

If you would like to explore the surroundings of Portimão, you can look ofrward to small beaches and beautiful small towns with great flair.

Climate

The best time to travel along the Algarve is from April to November. In April/May it slowly gets warmer, temperatures hover around a pleasant 20°C and there is almost no precipitation. The sea also heats up slowly and has a refreshing 19°C at this time. Best conditions for relaxed beach volleyball training.

In October, the average temperatures at Praia da Rocha are around 20°C . Also the sea is still heated up from the summer and invites, with pleasant 22°C, to cool down after the training. . Since it is no longer oppressively hot, but still very pleasant, so a very good time for an active vacation.
