Nicolau da Costa
Half Portuguese, half English, having travelled around the world, Nicolau's passion drew him back to this part of the world in Europe where he was brought up in order to dedicate himself to activities that are more directly linked to nature. He has experienced a wide range of activities connected with the ocean and the land, as sailing, diving, professional fishing, surfing, natural bee keeping and organic agriculture, landscape architecture, and nature guiding. His best skill is his deep connection with nature.
Originally from the centre of the Algarve, she has been coming to surf to this area since a very young age. Eleven years ago, she decided to move indefinitively to the Natural Park of Vicentina Coast (Southwest Algarve Portugal) and set up a surf school so she could live within the ocean surroundings, live among unspoiled nature, and of course, to surf. So she has been a surf teacher for the last 10 years as well as a local surf guide.

"The perfect initiation to mindfulness "
From upon the first session a meditation with sunset to the final yoga lesson on the beach at sunrise, the experience was exceptional!
Set in the breathtakingly beautiful landscapes of Sagres, this retreat is everything you need and more if you are stressed out, have the feeling you have lost yourself and want to reconnect with nature, your body and soul.
The teachers are passionate, caring and make everything much easier to apprehend.
The food is delicious and the hotel’s vibe is chilled.
It was my very first yoga and surf retreat. I had never done either yoga nor surf. But I felt the urge to take some me time. This was the perfect initiation to mindfulness and surfing!
I will and would recommend this retreat to anyone who is willing to understand more about themselves and meet great open minded and international people.
Thank you ever so much for this inner and outer trip.
