Prepare the body, start the day with YOGA!

Yoga and surfing go together like sand and saltwater. Both disciplines tap into a natural flow.

There’s something very special that the people who stay with us share, and it’s not only the love of the warm sun.
It’s not all about the draw of the golden beaches, the beautiful ocean and the waves it brings our way. While the fantastic weather and stunning coastline will always be the main attractions to this wonderful corner of Portugal, there’s another thing that we think brings people to visit, and makes them return, time and time again.

We have something in common. We connect with you, our guests, and you all connect with each other, and we think it’s because of this...
