Third week added. 12th May -2nd June.


After such a successful outing for our first visit to mainland Europe, we have decided to do it all again.

We return to the Algarve, south Portugal to bring you a 2-week 3-week, semi-inclusive Pop-Up to once again dip our toes into the Atlantic Ocean in this magical part of Portugal.

It has taken almost a year to recover but Rachel and Adam will once again be your hosts on this trip, they are currently in their fourth season with Soul & Surf, teaching yoga and surfing respectively.

Having worked with us in India, you will now find them hosting, teaching and being wonderful people in our retreat in Sri Lanka. When they originally came to us with the idea of popping-up in Portugal we, of course, said yes. When they said they wanted to return, well, there’s nothing we would like better than to spend a week with these two surfing, yoga-ing, chatting, eating, oh and more eating. They like to eat.

This time around we will be staying at Villa da Coruja, close to the village of Burgau, on the South coast of the Algarve close to the town of Sagres. There is easy access to a load of surf spots all within 30 minutes’ drive depending on conditions plus it’s only a short walk to the stunning, local beach. There may even be a wave there… you never know.


A Typical Day

We base our days around the tides, each day we’ll have a window of opportunity to go for one big surf or maybe two smaller surfs. Here is an idea of what we’ll get up to.

8am Breakfast, load up with energy before heading out for the morning surf.
9am Head out in search of the most suitable waves.
1pm Back to the villa for lunch
3.30pm Pranayama or meditation with Rachel
4pm Yoga with Rachel
7.30pm Dinner (either with us, or at one of the lovely local spots for sunset)

Or maybe it’ll look like this… only the tides can know!!

6.30am Meet for pre-surf tea, coffee and bananas – morning surf
10am Breakfast…. and, relax  (or 11.30am surf theory with Adam)
1pm Lunch
3pm Yoga with Rachel
4.15pm Afternoon tea, coffee and snacks
4.30pm Afternoon surf (if you have the energy, or just chill at the beach!)
