Experience Surf Retreats in the Beautiful Algarve, Portugal

Why Join a Surf Retreat in Portugal?

We are delighted to be offering our bespoke Surf, Stand Up Paddle and Yoga Retreats in Portugal as well as our set Surf Retreat dates for those travelling solo who want to join a relaxed and fun group Surf Holiday.

Portugal has been on the radar for a long time and with very good reason!

We fell madly in love with the far west European haven many years ago. In fact, it was pretty much love at first sight. To start, the sun shines over 300 days a year. Secondly, the food is incredible and to top it all of the people are wonderful. Honestly, what more could you ask for that a surf retreat in Portugal!?



Enjoy the stunning Algarve

Ride on Retreats have been running yoga and surf retreats in Portugal out of our much-loved home base at Boavista Resort for years. We love sharing this beautiful space with guests that travel from all over the UK and Europe to join us! Based only 5 minutes away from the gentle bustle of Lagos with café lined cobbled streets and unique shops, we enjoy the best of both worlds. It is peaceful but with everything we want and need close by! Luckily, the area is famed for its stunning beaches, crystal clear azure waters and fascinating cliffs, arches, and caves along its coastline. Honestly, it is the perfect place to take to the water for surfing and stand up paddleboarding!




Bespoke Surf Retreats in Portugal

Over the years, as well as offering our set date group Surf Retreats for solo travellers, we have grown and evolved with many return guests wanting to bring their family and friends on our retreats. It makes us so happy to see people wanting to share their Ride On Retreat experience with others! This evolution has seen us do more bespoke style surfing and paddleboard holidays.  As a result, we have decided to offer tailor-made, bespoke retreats as part of the Ride On offering! What that means is, we will create a package and service that fits fully around your wants and needs, thus enabling you to get exactly what you want out of your experience! Want to surf twice a day every day with a fully catered villa providing delicious meals? We can do that! Or, maybe you fancy just trying your hand at a little bit of everything – surfing, standup paddleboarding, yoga, and sightseeing?
