The homey surf lodge has plenty of options and provides the perfect setting for a group week. The pool, games room, fire pit, hammocks, and luscious outdoor area give plenty of space to relax between activities.

Private en-suite rooms, glamping teepees, and friendly shared rooms are available. Simply choose your preferred set-up. Getting your perfect space depends on availability, of course, and as Roxy Week is one of the most popular events, it’s best to book your slot as early as possible.

En-suite room

Treat yourself or you and a friend and stay in one of the sunny luxury en-suite rooms which are fully equipped with everything you'll need to make the most of your stay in Portugal.

Private room

If you prefer not to share, upgrade to a private room. Simply request during the booking process. They have single, double, twin, and combination private rooms available so you can even get together with a small group of friends for the week.

Shared room

Shared rooms bring the perfect opportunity to really get to know other Roxy girls. The shared accommodation is spacious, bright, and equipped with everything you need to feel at home, including cozy blankets in case there’s a cool evening breeze.

Program

Surf

Learn or improve in a pressure free environment. This program is available for complete beginners up to intermediate surfers. By the end of the week you'll have new confidence in the water and on your board. The Level Two ISA instructors teach according to ability, in small groups of three, use video coaching and land based theory sessions, so you're guaranteed to improve whatever your level is.

Yoga

Yoga is the perfect partner to surfing. The yoga teacher, Miri, has years of experience working with surfers and paddleboarders. Morning classes get your body warmed up for the activities ahead whilst evening sessions counteract tired, stiff muscles, opening up areas of the body holding tension after physical activity. These classes help your body and mind feel fantastic throughout the week.

SUP

Stand up paddleboarding (SUP) is a great way to explore the local waterways and coastline whilst learning some new board skills. Your SUP activity will suit the conditions of the day. Whether that’s exploring caves along the coast or the stunning nearby lake, you're sure to have a fantastic day out.

Hike

Enjoy a coastal hike with stunning views of crystal clear waters and the region’s rugged cliffs. Discover secret beaches, exotic plants and wildlife, and savor the smell of wild herbs growing along the way. Refresh after the hike with a sea view lunch in a beautiful local fishing village.

Typical day

Be ready with a comfy bikini, some factor 30, and your phone fully charged because this will be photo opportunity central. Start off with an energizing yoga session with Miri and dig into your healthy breakfast. You’ll need the energy for paddling. Then you’re off! Cruise in the surf van through beautiful Portuguese countryside to the best beach of the day.

Your instructors will guide you with advice and a lesson on the beach before you start practicing in the water. After a few hours with the sand and waves, head back to the surf lodge to rinse the salt out of your hair, take some pool-side hammock time, and enjoy your healthy dinner. End the evening talking about your day around the fire with other Roxy ladies, often from all over the world.
