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 ?
