We have found the perfect SUP-destination! An eco-retreat in “Costa Vicentina National Park” in the south of Portugal (Algarve), far away from the pumping, tourist-filled beaches and resorts, where you still can experience the authentic Portugal life with nature, beaches and charming villages.
What makes this spot so ideal for Stand Up Paddling? You can go and paddle at a wide variety of (calm) waters. There are gorgeous rivers running through the valleys and a endless breath-taking unspoiled coastline where you can paddle along the cliffs, explore fabulous grottoes and discover secluded secret beaches. The turquoise waters are very attractive to dip into and cool down in hot summer days.
If you want some more adventure you can also go (sup) surf ocean waves in some of the bays on the west coast.
This SUP trip is suitable for anyone, beginners or experienced Stand Up Paddlers. You also don’t need to have a lot of yoga experience (you can also skip this part of the program). It is all adjustable to your abilities and needs. You can join together with a friend, as a couple or single. We mix it up!
September 25 – October 2
Odexeixe consists of 2 parts really; the old town with white stone houses, and a photogenic old windmill stacked upon a hillside. 4 km west of the main town, following the river Seixe – which divide Alentejo and Algarve – into the valley towards the ocean, you find Odeceixe beach and it’s small settlement with a surf school, some bars and restaurants. The bay is enclosed by cliffs and an absolute beauty with endless hiking options along the cliff tops. (I love the seaside)
We will stay an Eco retreat & inspiration Land’ Vida Pura. At this side everything feels peaceful. The retreat, set in an Idyllic valley, is based on bio-dynamic principles.
There are a couple of options for accommodation. We have a villa for ourselves with a spacious kitchen and living area and terrace with magnificent views over the valley and the river Seixe.
This is our base where we have breakfast and diners. The villa had a couple of double rooms. If you want to experience more of the outdoors there are also tipi-tents. For some more privacy and space there are also apartments, this is an option for friends or a couple traveling together.
Activities around here all linked with health and well-being, like surfing, yoga and all kinds of workshops. Donkeys, dogs, cats, ducks and chickens wander around happily. Robin is one of the owners and he explains. “it’s our wish to give people an opportunity to experience inner peace just being here, and at the same time share our idea of living a pure lifestyle, ethical and eco-friendly.” (I love the seaside)

Every morning there will be breakfast-buffet in the Villa ready for you with a wide variety of options to choose from. We also have 4 diners prepared by a local chef in the Villa together with vegetables fresh from the garden. The food is based on a Macrobiotic diet but it is also possible to have fish or meat on request.
We will also have a lunch on the beach together.
The other evenings you are free to have diner somewhere on your own. Transportation can be arranged. Depending on the group we can organize to go together to a nice restaurant.
Every morning there will be a yogalesson (before breakfast) at the yogadek with stunning views over the valley. More info: pm
We work together with a local SUPschool that will take us on a journey through the nicest spots in the area. They have all high quality gear, like we are used to in our own school.
