PRAIA DA LUZ (BEACH OF LIGHT),
PORTUGAL HIKING AND YOGA RETREAT
Light up your life with an adventurous hiking and yoga retreat in the beautiful, unspoiled western Algarve region of Portugal. Join Jeni & Rocky Martinez for a seven-night stay in a yoga lodge located between Lagos and Sagres in the pretty village of Praia da Luz (meaning Beach of Light), close to the best beaches and the most picturesque coastline in Europe. With over 300 days of sunshine a year this is the perfect place for an autumn retreat in the sun.
On the edge of the protected Vicente National Park and within walking distance from the beautiful beaches, this spot is the ideal place to enjoy the many activities that make Algarve famous. In addition to hiking and yoga, other optional activities abound: kitesurfing, windsurfing, scuba diving, stand-up paddle boarding in the crystal clear waters and exploring the beautiful countryside.
We welcome all levels of yoga abilities, including beginners. This retreat is ideal for those who love to walk and hike. Explore secret beaches, climb the tallest cliffs and hike the wild Algarve coastline; wander through local villages, and a 1000 year old castle. Be awed by the sunset and stargazing on the Cape of St. Vincent, known as “The End of the World” because it is the most southwestern point of Europe.
