Something Tiny Whale Surf's long list of happy returning customers can vouch for is their mission to have you feeling at home and as comfortable as possible during your stay. Whether you’re a solo traveler, a couple, family, or with a group of friends Tiny Whale Surf has plenty of options to suit.

Rooms

All Tiny Whale Surf's room options, which include shared, private and private ensuite all come with everything you’ll need to be comfortable during your stay. All options include fresh linen and towels along with a few finishing touches like cozy blankets, extra cushions and candles for that homely feel.

Facilities

The lodge is set in a peaceful rural setting. Its large gardens offer an outdoor pool, jacuzzi, secluded yoga space, dining area, table tennis table, bar and lounge area with fire pit. The right hand border of the garden is home to the board & wetsuit shack as well as the lodge chickens, a firm favourite of pretty much every Tiny Whale guest!

Program

Physically it's a packed week, but yoga sessions are designed to stretch, relax, and restore your body before the next days surfing, so you feel energised each day. This week's perfect if you're either relatively new to yoga or have a current practice that you want to continue with a high quality instructor.

Typical day

Start your day with an energising yoga session and fuel yourself with a healthy breakfast before joining your surf instructors for the day. All equipment will be prepared for you, boards and lunch packed and ready to go. Simply pick your wetsuit size and grab your sun cream!

Your instructors will take you to the best beach on that day, depending on your level, the weather, and swell conditions. Each surf day includes two lessons with a break in between for lunch.

After improving your surf skills, you’ll be transported back to the surf lodge for a deep relaxing evening Yin yoga session to open energy lines and flush lactic acid from muscles. Wrap the day up with a healthy feast from the in-house chef whilst mingling with fellow surfers around the fire pit.

Location

The lodge is situated in a unique peaceful countryside setting near Lagos town, Portugal. The Algarve is slowly being recognized as one of the world's top five SUP destinations. Boasting two unbeatable coastlines, plus a variety of lakes, rivers, and lagoons, there's something to please everyone. Jaw dropping flat water paddling locations, perfect teaching conditions, and world-class surf make this an unforgettable spot.

Bursting with the sunshine and known for its laid-back lifestyle, the Western Algarve is the perfect holiday destination to unwind and recharge with some deserved rest and recuperation. Whether you achieve this by exploring the fantastic culture and unspoiled countryside, chilling out and catching some waves at some of Europe's most stunning beaches, or want to find adventure taking part in the endless outdoor activities on offer, the choice is yours.

Well away from the mainstream Eastern Algarve international tour operators, the West has largely stayed underdeveloped and still retains its natural charm. Traveling just half an hour from either the South or West coast up through the countryside to the Monchique mountain at 1000 meters, the whole area is speckled with small villages and towns with one foot in the past.
