Why Portugal is the Perfect Place for learning to Surf? We love running our Retreats from the sunny Algarve in Portugal and here are our reasons why:

  1. The weather! Hooray for sunshine, Learning to Surf in Algarve Portugal you are pretty much guaranteed bright blue skies and warm sunshine which makes the whole experience much more fun!
  2. The variety of beaches! When you come and learn to surf with us in Portugal we visit different beaches each day depending on the swell size and direction, the wind direction and the tide times. Having so many beaches in close proximity to our retreat villa means there is always an option for us to find good waves for the lessons.
  3. The food and coffee! With lovely local fresh organic food on tap, our retreat chef is able to create the most delicious and nutritious meals to fuel you up for a day Learning to Surf! We always make time to stop at a local Portuguese café on the way to our surf spots for fab coffee and tasty Portuguese treats such as the famous Pastel de Nata!
  4. Lack of crowds! We run our retreats out of the typical summer holiday season, as such we get to enjoy beautiful uncrowded beaches which makes it brilliant for Learning to Surf with much less people in the water. It is a magical place to be in Spring and Autumn!
  5. Easy to get to! Our retreat villa in the Algarve is less than an hour from Faro Airport so once you land you can be enjoying relaxation and sunshine very quickly plus there are so many cheap flights from the UK directly into Faro, making Learning to Surf in the sunshine quickly accessible!
  6. The Yoga! After a day of Learning to Surf we enjoy a restoring yin yoga session in the studio, on the beach or in the grounds of the villa. The opportunity to practice yoga outside is a real treat in the warmth of the Algarve evenings.
  7. The Spa! Our Surf and Yoga Retreat in Portugal is based at a lovely villa on a 5* Spa Resort, here all our guests have access to indoor and outdoor pools, a jacuzzi, steam room and sauna. Perfect for relaxation after a day in the sea!
  8. The Portuguese people, towns and fishing villages! We love exploring the local Portuguese restaurants in quaint fishing villages immersing ourselves in the culture, wandering through Lagos old town and eating at local restaurants with friendly local hosts.
  9. The scenery! The coastline around the western Algarve where we are based is stunning, we love exploring different coves and beaches when on our Surf Lessons and on our included paddleboarding tour of the grottos and coves. It’s an amazing place to see from both the sea and on our coastal drives. We always make time to stop off and enjoy the views!
  10. The team! We’ve been working with our partners in Portugal for over 6 years now and we think through running many retreats and over the years we have refined our package to offer our guests the perfect opportunity for Learning to Surf and practising yoga in the Algarve, Portugal.

Hope you will come and see for yourself why Portugal is the perfect place for Learning to Surf!
