& All Day Menu


The central meeting point to start your day or nightly adventures; the perfect place to meet fellow yogis from all over the world. Here you can enjoy a swim in our heated infinity pool, read a book while catching some sun in one of our sun loungers  or just relax with a nice glass of chilled goodness. 


We have an honest Baja Mexican all day menu where you’ll find no Portuguese-Mex cliches — only wholly authentic-tasting tacos, ice-cold beers, spicy mango margaritas and a peaceful setting where banter and good vibes are guaranteed to gush.


Pull up a seat. Kick back. This is where we unwind and indulge. It’s that stepping-off-the-plane-in-a-foreign-country vibe, it’s the weight of a margarita in hand, it’s that Portuguese sea breeze.


The Backyard is adamant about keeping our food offering small and delicious — no dishes acting as purely menu fillers here. You’ll have a straightforward choice of six tacos: Baja Pecado, Cajun Camaron, Baja Pollo, Coliflor and Asada Mushroom. All of these delights come on pillowy corn-based tortillas — meaning zero gluten for you, compadre! Running alongside this will be an ever-evolving fresh and unfused Pequeno menu including Loaded Fries, Al Pastor Mushroom Quesadilla, Quesadilla Estilo Fajita, Guacamole, Mexican Hummus and Nachos that the team are excited for you to share amongst friends.


In the space, there’s indoor low seating for friends & couples, and an outdoor poolside area for those who want to chat whilst they sip cocktails, munch tacos and take in the endless sea views. While The Backyard might not be a dusty cactus-filled garden in Mexico, the sea view and dedication to flavour more than make up for this fact!





On your arrival day, a schedule is open to book your massages. We will pamper your bodies with a variety of relaxing massages. Really take the time to appreciate and absorb the special oils that your body and mind needs. Make your stay even more zen after an active day of surf and yoga… Help your body to find the perfect balance.
