Learn to surf with us on our Women only Luxury Surf and Yoga week in the Algarve, a week of surfing, yoga and unwinding in a luxury spa resort. You’ll spend the week exploring the Algarve’s most beautiful beaches, soaking up the sun and meeting great new friends.



This surf holiday is perfect for complete beginners who’ve never stepped foot on a board, or beginners who are still getting the hang of standing up.

All week, you’ll receive top surf lessons from Jen our excellent surf instructor who’ll get you up and riding in no time. With a low student to instructor ratio, we provide the very best coaching to get the most out of your time in the water!

Each day you’ll head to the beach with the best conditions for your level, it’s a great chance to explore the award winning beaches of the Algarve, with two coastlines on our door step, we’ll find great waves for your level.

You’ll receive two surf lessons per day, with a break in-between to refuel with a tasty picnic lunch and a chance to soak up the sun. .


Each evening our fantastic Yoga Instructor Maria will guide you through a dynamic yoga practice, great for all level yogis! Through the week, we’ll enjoy vinyasa and yin yoga sessions, perfect for stretching our tied muscles from surfing, building strength, improving flexibility and balance and calming the mind.


Midweek, we’ll take a day off from surfing and head out to explore caves and grottos by stand up paddleboard. We’ll be up before sunrise, we’ll have a quick lesson on the sand, before getting out on the water. Following the coastline, we’ll weave in and out of caves and paddle past the rock formations the Algarve is famous for.


The Algarve is one of Europe’s top surf destinations, boasting two coastlines stretching over 200 km. There’s plenty of beaches for us to choose from, you’ll get the best waves all week long for your level.

Throughout the week, we’ll be exploring beaches on both coastlines including the unspoilt and wild beaches on the west coast.

We’ll be staying in between Praia da Luz and Lagos on the south coast of the Algarve, in our own private luxury villa set in a beautiful golf course. You’ll have full access to the spa facilities, including gym, indoor and outdoor pool, steam room, sauna and hot tub.

Praia da Luz has a long sandy stretch of beach, with crystal clear water and some beautiful cliff running trails.

Lagos is a pretty cobblestoned town, with a lively night life and great bars. In the evening, if the groups fancy it, we’ll head out to explore!

Faro airport just 1 hour away, there’s plenty of low cost flights running daily. We’ll arrange airport transfers for you, simply jump on a plane and our hosts are on hand to make your holiday stress free and relaxed from the moment you land!
