Hello… We are The Salty Pelican Surf & Yoga Retreats based in a handful of beautiful locations throughout Portugal and Sri Lanka. We are not your standard surf & yoga retreat but with a bit of a twist… and we don't just mean with your asanas ! We like to refer to ourselves as a social lifestyle retreat, where a detox juice may be absent but where a glass of locally sourced wine at sunset will not be frowned upon either. It’s a place where there's a great opportunity to connect with a collective bunch of feel-good people looking for a dose of health, inspiration, good vibes and good times.


The Salty Pelican is a lifestyle, a place where like minded new friends connect, eat great food and practice daily yoga… We are a big family who are very fortunate to receive guests visiting from all over the world. We love what we do here, employ people who thoroughly enjoy their jobs and who are brilliant at motivating our guests to try something new that excites them the most, like learning how to surf.  So... Are you down ?


Imagine waking up to the sound of the sea breeze moving through the trees… practicing yoga at sunrise right by the seaside… hearing nothing but the sounds of crashing waves and catching your first waves on the beautiful coastline. Here at The Salty Pelican is a place to be happy... A place to feel like your own... a place to feel like home... it’s an entire experience consisting of everything we love: surf, yoga, sun, sea, salt, adventures, great people and good vibes. So kick-up your feet... grab an ice cold drink and really enjoy the spectacular BBQ sunset dinners here. Life is just that easy at The Salty Pelican.... Experience revitalising Yang Yoga sequences in the morning followed by a gentle late afternoon class of restorative Yin yoga.. A team of certified instructors who follow a very unique approach in teaching will make sure that you learn the proper techniques, ride the waves and have loads of fun whilst perfecting it. We try to balance a lively atmosphere at The Salty Pelican with comfort and a good night's sleep.... 



The Salty Pelican was born by the seaside in Portugal, growing her wings quickly, she spread her nests to the southern shores of Sri Lanka. We are a bunch of yoga & surf retreats consisting a mix of private and deluxe shared rooms. We provide guests a very comfortable and welcoming stay with close proximity to both the sea and nature.

Our Yoga & Surf retreats have been converted into stunning traveler's meeting points; featuring cozy lounges, stunning chill-out terraces, infinity swimming pools, wellness Spas, relaxing gardens to catch the sun in our outdoor lounges and beanbags each day. With our own yoga retreat menu serving ridiculously good tasting healthy locally sourced food and refreshing drinks... you will have very little to complain about during your stay with us.


The Salty Pelican is a place to be happy... A place to feel like your own... a place to feel like home... it’s an entire experience consisting of everything we love: surf, yoga, sun, sea, salt, adventures, great people and good vibes...
