Chicks On Waves is much more than just a surf and yoga retreat in Portugal. Surfing with other women is a one-of-a-kind feeling. We cheer for each other when we see our friend catching a wave…

“When I started surfing 16 years ago at the age of 25, I often found I was the only female in the water. By organizing these surf weeks for women, it was (and still is) my mission to get more women surfing and get them to surf together. Women of all ages can learn to surf and we can learn from each other. I am looking forward to sharing the stoke with you!” – Katrien, Founder of Chicks On Waves

After Surf Yoga Session


Surf and yoga go hand in hand. Both disciplines tap into a natural flow. Yoga teaches you to listen to your body and improves your strength, breath control, balance and more. While in surfing you observe and listen to the ocean. Marilina, Chicks On Waves yoga teacher & passionate surfer, knows the needs of a surfer’s body and mind by heart. In her Hatha Yoga Flow and Restorative yoga sessions she will bring rest to your mind and refuel your body’s energy.

Surf & Yoga Retreat Portugal Villa


Waking up with the sound and the view of the ocean – This dream comes true at the Chicks on Waves surf & yoga boutique villa. Just outside the charming fishermen’s village Burgau in the south Algarve, Portugal, you find the villa within 5 minutes walking distance from the idyllic white sanded beach ‘Cabanas Velhas’. The villa has a lot to offer. Relax at the pool, enjoy the ocean view and go for a walk on the beach down the road. Algarve’s beautiful beaches are waiting for you to explore them. To bring a day full of surf and yoga to a great end, meet your new friends with a drink from the bar in the cosy living room. 

Surf & Yoga Retreat Portugal Food


Healthy food plays a vital role in recharging energy for a day of surf and yoga in Portugal. A varied breakfast offers everything your body needs to energize for the fun ahead. Surfers will get their lunch, a tasty salad creation, at the beach. Anina, chef for evening meals, will serve you a mouth watering two course menu made from local ingredients fresh from the market. On Wednesdays the weekly BBQ is a popular highlight for all women staying at Chicks on Waves surf & yoga retreat Portugal.

Don’t worry – the amazing hosts and chefs will adjust to all your dietary requirements.
