Wine tasting

Quinta de Sant’Ana, just northwest of Lisbon, is a small family run vineyard. National varieties thrive amid some carefully chosen international grape varieties. Touriga Nacional, Aragonez, Merlot, Pinot Noir ripen well in their moderate climate and result in deliciously elegant and complex reds.

The white varieties are Fernão Pires, Verdelho, Alvarinho, Riesling, and Sauvignon Blanc. The style is “cool climate” and the aim is to produce fresh, mineral gastronomic wines with great texture and a lengthy finish. The wines are complemented by regional culinary treats, turning a visit to the winery into an interesting and entertaining treat.

Yoga

In the afternoon, Activity Surf Camp & Hostel offers a yoga class in the outdoor space of the surf camp. When you have surfed a lot, it’s good to stretch your tired muscles. Let your body relax completely, practice balancing and breathing. This will all benefit to your next surf.

The classes are suitable for different levels, starting slowly with the basics and building up in every class. The classes are given by Lisanne, an RYT-certified Hatha yoga teacher who has been dedicating her life to surf and yoga.
