The Liquid Mountains Surf and Activity Lodge and Guesthouse not only offers surf packages but also accommodations. With two houses to choose from, you could either go for the quiet accommodation with garden, chill zone, and volleyball field for couples and families, or, if you are into partying and a more lively style, a mini ramp, bar, pool, music, and more, the guesthouse might be your spot.

Liquid Mountains is ideal for individualists, self-catering people, and for those who like it cozy and calm. It is up to you if you go for a shared room or for more privacy in a double room with your own bathroom. The lodge includes amenities like a cozy living room, TV, Wi-Fi, books, games, music, and videos. It has its own chill-out garden, washing machine, volleyball field, and a mini-golf area.

The guesthouse has a full program including the mini ramp, pool, bar, kitchen, breakfast buffet, food events, fitness, massage, and much more. There is Wi-Fi in the whole house, as well as Internet TV, surf movies, and music in the living room. There is also a chill-out garden and the Liquid Mountains Shop.

Adhering to the principle that you should enjoy your holiday your own way, you have the option to use both houses. They are only five walking minutes away and of course, you can use all facilities of the Liquid Mountains ground, independently of your booking choice.

Yoga is perfect for your personal balance of body, mind, and soul. It is your ideal addition to your surf holiday because it not only centers you inside out but also prepares your body for the day's activities. Liquid Mountains' experienced yoga instructor will show you how to stretch your muscles, how to breathe the right way, and how to relax your body and soul with active and meditative exercises. Ultimately, you will get in touch with the ocean and nature.

The camp is located in a quiet town, situated in the nature, close to the beaches Arrifana, Monte Clerigo, and Amoreira. The coastal trails are perfect for hiking, jogging, or horse riding. There are waves all year round; spring and autumn are great for intermediate surfers and waves during this time can also get big. During summer, the small swells are perfect for beginners. The winter season sees mostly bigger waves and is perfect for surf professionals and daredevils.

Arrifana is a sheltered beach and is good for learning with the occasional big swell. Monte Clerigo West facing beach break picks up lots of swells. Amoreira faces west-northwest and has a lagoon for SUP. The river mouth develops good sand banks.

There is always something to discover. Participation is optional; decide daily if you want to take part or not. You can also book a food package along with the retreat.

Blackroll

Cramped muscles build up, especially due to repetitive movements. With the blackroll, you can quickly find the problem zones on your own and relax muscles through rolls and loosen the cramps and pain in your whole body. Blackroll is ideal for surfers.

It allows you to strengthen your body and relax your muscles so that you are ready for the next swell. Liquid Mountains is the first official blackroll center at the Algarve. You can get a free introduction course if you are interested. The cost per extra session is 15 EUR per person.

Capoeira

A Brazilian art of fighting, capoeira is a mix between dance, acrobatics, music, energy, and body control. Beginners learn the basic techniques and then take part in the roda. Advanced dancers can also refine their techniques and style and visit the rodas in the area. It is a fascinating combination with surfing: balance, control, and flow. The cost per session is 15 EUR per person.

Other activities

For a little extra cost, horse riding and bicycle and scooter rental can be booked in order to explore the beautiful surroundings. Other activities include climbing, fishing, canoe paddling, diving, skydiving, skate bowl, and more. Liquid Mountains knows the companies and will help you organize and realize additional adventures for you.

Pilates

Improve your body statue and flexibility, loosen tension and pain, and get power and perseverance with Pilates. Your joints get a better stability, which gives you more power in your whole body. Just to sum it up easily: Pilates on a regular basis will make you super fit. The cost per session is 15 EUR per person.

SUP

Stand up paddling is a super flat-water activity and basically the prototype of surfing. With Liquid Mountains, you can get started with SUP tours. First basics about this sport can be learned at the lake of Vale da Telha: How to handle the boards, how to place your body weight, and the correct way of paddling. If things are going good you are ready for your first tour.

An introduction at the lake costs 25 EUR per person for a 90-minute session. The Amoreira River tour costs 45 EUR per person for a 3-hour session. And the Odeceixe River tour costs 65 EUR per person for a 4-hour session. If you have experienced SUP before, you can rent only the equipment and go on your own.

There is a selection of certified therapists who use different practices and treatments on site, depending on what you really need. You can choose from Ayurveda massage, deep tissue massage, foot reflex massage, physiotherapy, rehabilitation, sport massage, kinesis taping, lymph-drain therapy.
