Yoga lessons and workshops take place in the 66-square-meter Mongolian yurt, which can also be freely used as the wave skate ramp. In the large courtyard located in the middle of the house, you can chat with people, dining outdoors, and enjoy the open air cinema in Portuguese warm evenings! But if you are searching for a quiet place, you’ll always find a spot in the lovely garden, swinging on the hammocks among the fruit trees.

The daily timetable will be totally flexible, depending on the weather and ocean conditions, in order to allow the guests to always enjoy the best waves during the surf session. At your arrival, you will have a briefing with the guide in order to understand your level, your preferences, and your goals for the camp.

Moka is on the top of the hill just outside Ericeira, an old fishermen village featuring typical light-blue and white houses facing the ocean. Restaurants and nightclubs are increasingly crowded with tourists every year. You can enjoy the fresh fish that arrives daily at the little harbor as well as the warm welcoming of the locals.
A few steps from the house there are some bars and restaurants as well as a supermarket. Getting around is very easy: daily transfers to and from the beach and Ericeira are included in your pack! You can also use Moka Surfhouse & Yoga Retreat's bikes for free, take the bus which stops very close to the house, rent a scooter or take a stroll and reach the two nearby beaches through beautiful trails. Then, if you want to get more serious with walking, you can plan with them a trekking inside Sintra and Cascais Natural Park which begins near the house.
Ericeira is also a perfect starting point for discovering the many attractions of the Estremadura region; not far from the famous old village of Sintra, one of the most popular historical well-known locations in Portugal and right above the Sintra and Cascais Natural Park, a charming location for those who love nature. Lisbon is easily reached either by car or by bus (around 40 minutes' ride).
