A simple and relaxed retreat offering surf and yoga instruction in the Western Algarve

The Surf and Yoga Retreat is located in the Western Algarve of Southern Portugal. This eco retreat is positioned minutes from the Atlantic Ocean, close to Amoreira Beach and Monte Cierigo. The picturesque and quintessentially Portugese village of Aljezur is just 2km away boasting seafood restaurants and coffee and cake shops. The rugged and uncrowded part of Portugal offers stunning scenery, birdlife and nature walks.

The camp lies nestled in a secluded natural valley amongst 16 acres of native cork trees, but still close to 4 superb local surf beaches. Camp accommodation and facilities are simple with a rustic charm, yet tasteful and suitably comfortable. The belief here is that living close to nature replenishes our energy and that natural beauty inspires us. This environment fosters a sense of mindfulness whilst also offering a fun and rejuvenating stay.

The Native Indian tipi accommodation has an 8 metre diameter and can sleep up to 5 people. There is a Moroccan lounge close by for relaxing on couches, listening to music and chatting about the days events.

If you wish to be in a quiet, peaceful spot...your own space... there is a tipi for 1 set across a small wooden bridge in a shaded sandy spot.

A secluded option, ideal for a couple wanting privacy and a little more comfort, is a double safari tent. This has its own small verandah giving breaktaking views to the camp below. Apart from the double/twin bed, there is a small lounge and coffee table inside and there are outside chairs on the deck.

Prices are based on 5 or 7 Day Programme with meals, snacks and drinks (organic when possible), twice a day yoga classes, fully kitted out surf lessons, transport to local beaches, mountain biking, hiking and canoeing, visit to local sauna and spa and access to visits to specialised wellness practitioners and masseuses. Rates for all this start at €695 per person. They are closed during the winter.
