The nature reserve Costa Vicentina covers almost 75,000 hectares of secluded beaches, steep cliffs, sand dunes, fresh lagoons, and green hills spread along the coastline of the Atlantic Ocean. As building is mostly forbidden, the area has remained untouched by tourism. Just a few picturesque Portuguese fishermen villages and surfers camping in their vans illustrate the astonishing nature along the coast

Hiking along the cliffs

The area offers a lot to discover. Take a pick-nick and go for a wonderful two kilometers hike through the hills and along the coast to spend your afternoon sunbathing on Praia do Cordoama. You can continue for another 12 kilometers along a beautiful coastal path until you reach the end-of-the-world village Sagres. Enjoy a good cappuccino in the harbour's auction café while watching the fishing boats return and bring in their treasures.

Diving in crystal clear water

Here you can also take a boat tour to discover the Algarve's most secret beaches and sea caves, watch dolphins, or join the diving center to explore the area's sparkling under water world.

Fortaleza de Sagres and Cape Saint Vicente

On the other side of the village, you can find the 'Fortaleza de Sagres' and the famous 'Cape Saint Vicente', the most western point of Europe, long believed to be the end of the world.

Surf lessons and world famous surf beaches

On the way, you will find Praia do Mareta, Praia do Tonel and Praia do Beliche, a few of the area's pearls and famous for its world class surf breaks. Get some adrenaline while watching the local, talented boys surfing waves or take the challenge and join a surf lesson yourself. MEKAYOGA is happy to hook you up with certified and experienced local surf teachers.

Mountain biking in Monchique

Rent a mountain bike and cycle along the coast or in the wonderfully green 'Sierra de Monchique'. Join an organized tour to be sure you get to see all the best places! This is a great and adventurous ways to further explore the beauty of the Algarve.

    Lovely group, great instructors uncomfortable accomodation

    CONS Negatives: The website says every room has a private bathroom! This is very much not the case. Not a lot to do during the day but go to the beach bunk beds creaked with every movement when the house is full it is too many people.

    PROS Positives: Yoga sessions were never too complicated benefits, both physical and mental were felt immediately Instructors were passionate about yoga and gave excellent "life" advice as well as exersize instruction The beaches were probably the nicest I've ever seen, but it is a very long walk to get there.

    Antwort des Veranstalters: Dear Pamela, Thank you for your stay for us, we enjoyed your good vibe! Also thanks for your feedback, this way we can learn to further improve our guests experiences. This week we hosted 10 guests. On average we receive between 6 and 10 guests per week, spread over 4 double/twin rooms, a private single room and a bunkbed space. As we receive many requests for the summer, we decided to add the private single room so we could accommodate more people that really wanted to stay with us. This is the only without private bathroom that can be booked online. I will adjust our room description right away, our apologies for not having updated the rooms description online yet. All the other rooms that we offer online are double/twins with private bathrooms. We do not offer the bunkbed space online because it is a much smaller space than the other rooms and because it shares a bathroom. For that reason, we give a thorough explanation of the bunkbed space and a 100 euro discount and we only offer people this option after we have been fully booked. This way our guests can make a conscious decision whether they want to accept the bunkbed or rather come back another time. We have knowingly decided to keep a lot of free, because we learned from experience that filling up the days with lots of activities does not eventually support people to slow down, to start reconnecting with the self and to start cultivating inner peacefulness. I wish you all the best! Love and light, MekaYoga

    CONS Negatives: Personally I had to get used to the humid weather. It sometimes hit 90-100 pct which means wet bedlinnen, towels and clothes. But on the other hand the wind is strong and helpfull and the scenery so stunning that you forget the tideous details in no time.

    PROS Positives: It was a great pleasure to land in so much kindness, yoga knowledge, teaching skill and overall organic attitude. Harmke and Michael are as a couple and teachers in my eyes the coming generation of workshop holders. They grasp the totality of why most of us yogis go abroad to be inspired. Not only yoga-wise but also as humans living among humans. Through kindness and with kindness. Namasté

    Relax & enjoy in the beautiful nature of Algarve

    PROS Positives: Really nice retreat with lovely organizers who really care for people. Yoga and meditation classes under the clear blue sky were great. The group was small, which added to the charm and family feeling. The villa is spacious and really nice and the surrounding nature is stunning. I would definitely recommend this retreat to anyone who is looking for relaxing and recentering with help of beautiful yoga classes in the beautiful nature.

    "I took a class with Harmke and it was one of my favorites from a whole month of daily practice at an ashram in India. She is so open-hearted, present, and inspiring as a yoga teacher and person. Harmke's class left me feeling both relaxed and energized, and looking forward to practicing again. 5 stars!"

    "We were lucky to have Harmke teach us daily yoga practise during our stay. At the time, we were also taking surfing lessons for three hours each day. This would not have been possible for us as middle-aged couple without Harmke's gentle restorative yoga practise. We really liked the way she modified the practice to suit our special needs and even daily moods. Some days we were having Hatha style yoga, some days more stretching Yin type yoga and one day we focused on Pranayama. Having practised yoga for more than 15 years, I can truly say Harmke represents the top rank of yoga teachers with a radiant personality, warmth and thorough knowledge. I can recommend Harmke to any student interested in having a fulfilling practise in the spirit of true Yoga."

    "I did a yoga class for the first time during the first week of July with Harmke and I absolutely loved it! It was perfect for beginners and also for advanced people. Everybody can find his place during the class. I liked her presence, her consciousness about the body and mind and her personality as well! A stunning girl inside out with a great knowledge about Yoga; I will do it again for sure."
