Local Highlights & Activities


  • Praia do Monte Clérigo:  A fantastic beach for sunbathers, walkers, kids, and surfers alike. There’s a parking lot right at the bottom of the valley and along the main road leading to the beach. 5 minutes drive… or you can hike there along the cliffs (or on the road) in ~60 minutes.

  • Praia da Arrifana:  This is a South-facing beach, thus it’s traditionally more wind-protected than other beaches in the area. It’s also well-known for its swell -- and well-renown surfers paradise. Note: parking can be tight and you cannot park on the small windy road down to the beach (you’re likely to get a ticket!); park in the designated parking spots and in the lots on top of the hill! 5 minutes drive… or you can hike there via the cliffs in ~1:15 hrs.

  • Praia da Amoreira:  A great beach with a river mouth. We highly recommend a stroll along the beach and its river mouth when the tide is low! Only 8 minutes drive away.


Old Town of Aljezur & Castelo de Aljezur

  • Take a stroll through the cobble-stoned streets of Aljezur’s old town. You can walk (or drive) up to the castle and enjoy the views over the town, hillside, and valley. It’s also a great spot for watching the sunset, then grab a bite in town afterward.



  • Boards and wetsuit rentals:  Get in touch with us, we’ll point you in the right direction.

  • Ask us about private or group classes.  We can recommend instructors and schools based on your level of experience.

Hiking & Biking

  • The “Rota da Vicentina” is a vast hiking and biking trail network that spans across the South-West of Portugal, leading through forest areas, rural villages & along the coast.  One of the most beautiful trails, the Fishermen’s Trail, is right out front of Casa da Vida II.  Walk to Ponta da Atalaia (5 mins) and enter the trail in either direction of the coastline --  you can hike to Arrifana or Monte Clerigo (and beyond)!

  • Ponta da Atalaia ~10 mins walk: From Casa da Vida II, turn down the street to the right -- walk to the roundabout and take the dirt road leading towards the ocean.  Here, you’ll find ruins and magnificent views up and down the coast.  Great spot to watch the sunset!

  • Check out Rota Vicentina’s website for all hiking trails.



  • Dawn Collective Shala, Vale da Telha, Sector B. Various classes.

  • Private Classes @ Casa da Vida II.  We’re connected to a lot of yoga instructors in the area. We can arrange for private classes at Casa da Vida II.
