Summary

The Salty Pelican surf and yoga retreat sits snuggled between the sun-dappled shores of Cascais bay and Sintras dramatic mountain range. Cascais renowned for its glorious stretch of white sandy beaches which are simply stunning, beautiful palaces, cosmopolitan vibrancy and as Lisbons most sophisticated beach destination. With over 300 days of sun per year, you spend most of your time outdoors, even in winter. Take a stroll on the seaside promenade and discover many beachfront cafes where you can absorb the clean swathes of golden sand with the wide stretch of the Atlantic sweeping around the bay to Cascais. Perfect. Sitting there, sipping on a galao, Portugal’s version of a café latte, you can limit yourself to thinking nothing but good thoughts.

Imagine waking up to the sound of the sea breeze moving through the trees… practicing yoga at sunrise right by the seaside… hearing nothing but the sounds of crashing waves and catching your first waves on the beautiful coastline. Here at The Salty Pelican is a place to be happy... A place to feel like your own... a place to feel like home... it’s an entire experience consisting of everything we love: surf, yoga, sun, sea, salt, adventures, great people and good vibes. So kick-up your feet... grab an ice cold drink and really enjoy the spectacular BBQ sunset dinners here. Life is just that easy at The Salty Pelican.... Experience revitalising Yang Yoga sequences in the morning followed by a gentle late afternoon class of restorative Yin yoga.. A team of certified instructors who follow a very unique approach in teaching will make sure that you learn the proper techniques, ride the waves and have loads of fun whilst perfecting it. We try to balance a lively atmosphere at The Salty Pelican with comfort and a good night's sleep....

This reviewer told us :

I was traveling for 7 months total doing tons of different things all over Europe, and whenever someone asks me what my favorite part was, I tell them about the Salty Pelican.

Surfing:

I loved the yoga, the surfing, the beautiful clean building, all the awesome extra activities, but most of all the people. I befriended amazing people of all ages from all over the world. It was the life hanging out with fun interesting new friends from 8 different countries, ages 16-50 something going to yoga, having breakfast, chilling on the beach, surfing, doing more yoga, then having some drinks or going out, all having a blast together. And the staff were even more incredible. Not only were they completely attentive to our every request, but they were also lovely people to spend time with and always were genuinely excited to help organize our adventures.

Other (e.g. Surroundings, Nightlife, etc.):

Ive never met people this legitimately thrilled to be working in tourism. You could tell it really made them happy to share this place with us. Tiago and Monika worked so hard to keep the retreat clean and efficient with its tons of activities and then were always coming up with new cool places to take us on their few evenings off. I really can't believe all the cool things we fit into just one week. Thank you so much Monika, Gareth, Tiago and Ida for creating such a beautiful paradise, I had the most wonderful time getting to know all of you. I will be back one day! :)

This reviewer told us :

I can write an endless list of good, positive, amazing, excellent things about this retreat and still feel it will never be enough to describe it and make it justice. It is simply an experience to need to have on your own. I have to admit that before coming I was not quite convinced about staying at an 8 beds-dorm. Being in my late 30's I thought I was done with dorm rooms. But that was not a problem at all! Everybody was so respectful, and the rooms are so nice, clean, and comfortable that it was perfect. And age was not an issue. There are people form 20 to 40yrs of age from all over the world, and nobody felt too old or too young.
