Arrifana Surf Lodge takes pride in offering the all-inclusive surfing and yoga package holiday. Arrifana Surf Lodge will supply all the equipment, transport, great food and drinks, great surf and also yoga tuition. The program provides you with all the skills you need. The groups are kept to a maximum of 8 people per session so everyone will get a chance at one to one tuition. This package will leave you feeling rejuvenated and full of energy.
The property is new with 4 large private guest bedrooms including king or twin options, 1 shared room and 3 large guest bathrooms. Arrifana Surf Lodge offers shared lounge and kitchen facilities and in the winter, they even have a roaring fire to keep you warm and cozy.
There are two huge terraces with views out to the Atlantic ocean where breakfast and dinner are served daily. Recently, they have added an outdoor yoga terrace and plunge pool. Take a look below and check out all the great features Arrifana Surf Lodge has to offer:
Biodynamic craniosacral therapy is a fully-clothed, gentle holistic therapy that works on all levels to encourage well-being, the immune system, and the body’s own healing and balancing abilities. ‘Biodynamic’ means that the body is treated as a whole with the understanding that it has everything within it to heal itself and come back into balance.
Focusing on inherent health, rather than imbalance, it is also fantastic when pain is acute as it is so gentle. It is profoundly relaxing and suitable for all ages and almost all conditions including pregnant mothers. One client actually commented that she had started to feel her whole life was becoming more authentic since having regular sessions.
Truth and health are actually one and the same and always present underneath injuries, illnesses, and the general snowstorm of day to day living! The work uncovers this "truth/health" physically, emotionally, psychologically, and spiritually and is great for tired surfers and physical aches, strains, and injuries. Sophie is also a qualified Reiki practitioner and this also benefits the treatments she gives.
Every class is a thoughtfully handcrafted collection of asanas (postures). Connecting the body with the breath in a creative flow. A morning flow will awaken and stretch the body, creating power for surf and an evening flow will soothe and nourish your salty souls. Meditation and Pranayama (breathe work) will also be a part of your practice; all levels are welcome.
Lomilomi is the word used today to mean “massage therapist” or “Hawaiian massage.” In the Hawaiian language, the word used traditionally, called lomi, means “to knead, to rub, or soothe; to work in and out, as the paws of a contented cat.” Lomilomi practitioners use the palms, forearms, fingers, knuckles, elbows, knees, feet, even sticks, and stones.
Antonio's creative approach to his classes ensure everyone has a fun and memorable time. As a qualified homeopath he also likes to add his alternative knowledge including yoga in his lessons.

Arrifana Surf Lodge is situated in the Costa Vincentina natural park and is located only 3 kilometers from Arrifana beach a perfect beach for learning to surf.
During your stay, you are sure to visit one, if not all of the three beaches listed below. These beaches are all within 10 minutes drive from the lodge and are the main beaches where Arrifana Surf Lodge holds their surf lessons. The waves can differ on each beach depending on swell and wind direction.
Amoreira is Monte Clerigo's sister beach due to the proximity of their locations. Amoreira works on the same conditions as Monte Clerigo but due to the river that creates a beautiful lagoon the banks at this beach vary from that of Monte Clerigo creating different waves on different tides thus making it a great alternative to Monte Clerigo.
A west facing beach that works best with a north northwesterly swell with a north to north easterly wind. Due to the direction that Arrifana is situated it has protection from big northerly swells and can hold swell up to 3 meters.
Monte Clerigo is a great summer break due to its north westerly facing position. It receives all swell from the Atlantic Ocean and works best on a south to easterly wind. You will always find a wave at Monte Clerigo when Arrifana is flat.
All the food served at Arrifana Surf Lodge is homemade using the freshest ingredients possible. Arrifana Surf Lodge knows how hungry surfers can get after a long day spent on the beach and in the waves so they always offer a three-course menu, five nights a week with the option of dining out at some great local restaurants for the other two nights.
Continental breakfast is served daily and includes a selection of cereals, fresh milk, yogurt, fresh bread, jams, honey, homemade nut butter, ham, cheese, fresh fruit, and eggs, any way you like.
Lunch is provided from Monday to Friday, guests are supplied with a lunch buffet to make their own sandwiches on freshly baked rolls or they can make a salad box. Loads of fresh veggies, salad fillings, and brown rice or quinoa are supplied. There is also fresh fruit, biscuits, and potato chips available. The lodge also takes a large cooler of filtered water to the beach.
Evening meals are provided on Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday. There are no meals provided on Thursday and Saturday. Dinners always consist of three courses of homemade goodness. The lodge always offers a wide range of vegetarian options and they cater to all food intolerances and diet plans.
