Program

Surfing

During the surf camp, you will have five full days of surfing sessions. The winter provides the best possible conditions for learning to surf. Although the swell is the biggest at this time of the year, it wraps around the headland and delivers fun sized and clean waves on south coast beaches.

Yoga

With two yoga sessions included in your package, it is the perfect time to get into yoga. Let Miri, the experienced yoga instructor, guide you through a series of stretches, great of soothing your sore arms from paddling. The dynamic yoga classes run both at sunrise and sunset, welcoming all levels.

SUP

One of the most popular activities is touring to the caves and the grottos of Lagos at sunrise with SUP. During this surf camp, you will have a basic lesson of SUP before you set off to explore the most beautiful coastline in Europe.

Instructors

Miri
Miri is Tiny Whale Surf and Kite Lodge's highly experienced and well-loved yoga instructor.

Location

This surf camp will take place in Sargacal, Portugal. Tiny Whale Surf Lodge is set in the beautiful countryside offering a tranquil escape in nature, located only five minutes' drive away from Lagos, voted as the world's best holiday destination in 2014.

Western Algarve

Bursting with the sunshine and known for its laid-back lifestyle, Western Algarve is the perfect holiday destination to unwind and recharge with some deserved rest and recuperation. Whether you want to explore the fantastic culture and unspoiled countryside, chill out and catch 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.

Away from the mainstream Eastern Algarve's international tour operators, Western Algarve 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 1,000 meters, the whole area is speckled with small villages and towns. You can find traditional coffee shops, bakers, fresh produce from local producers, and artisan craftsmen all selling their wares. Do not miss out on the local cuisine of this area, either with a cataplana (fresh fish stew), barbecued sardines, and a Pastilla de Nata for dessert.

You will have a variety of options for breakfast including fresh seasonal fruits, yogurt, homemade bircher muesli, and freshly-baked bread with a selection of toppings. You can also make your own vegan oat pancakes or waffles. For lunch, a selection of simple plates is available at the lodge such as toasties, salads, fresh fruit, sandwiches, crisps, and cookies.
