We are bringing The Salt Sisterhood Yoga & Wild Swimming retreat to the azure waters of the Algarve! Come with us to Portugal's southernmost coastline and discover glittering emerald coves, stunning natural rock formations and water temperature so perfect it'll wash calm over you without taking your breath away! The Algarve enjoys 360 days of sunshine per year, with October being one of the most beautiful of all times to visit due to the lingering warmth of both the sun and sea - but without all the crowds of summertime. You will stay in our exclusive luxury villa nestled in the heart of the Algarve just 10 minutes from some of Portugal's most beautiful beaches, eat delicious and freshly prepared meals made by our chef using locally sourced and seasonal ingredients, enjoy blissful yoga and meditation and of course daily trips to the sea where you are free to enjoy the water (and sun!) in whichever way you choose to - It's your retreat...
Yoga & Wild Swimming Retreat, Portugal
We will practice yoga and meditation sessions each day. Your teacher and host will guide you through these practices with a compassionate approach, always encouraging you to rest when you need to and look after your body - be kind to yourself! It does not matter how much or how little yoga you have practiced before, your teacher will be there to guide you through the alignment of the postures and hold space for your practice. This is your retreat, so if at any point you feel you would rather rest or take part in another activity at the casa then you are free to enjoy your time however you wish to.
Each day of our retreat we will discover a new and stunning swimming spot in the local area. Transport will be provided and our local guide and qualified lifeguard will be on hand to answer any questions you may have and to make your swims both safe and fun. We will provide you with beach towels and there are facilities at our casa for washing and drying your towels which you are free to use. Our retreat was inspired by a book called Blue Mind by marine biologist Wallace J. Nichols - written about the remarkable effects of water on our health and well being. Even just being near to the water has an almost immediate and profound effect on us.
Our in-villa retreat chef will prepare 3 healthy and delicious vegetarian meals per day using locally sourced and seasonal ingredients. On your day of arrival there will be dinner and on your departure day there will be breakfast for our final meal all together. We cater to your individual dietary requirements - just let us know.
- 5 nights accommodation at our luxury villa
- Delicious and nourishing seasonal vegetarian meals - breakfast, lunch and dinner prepared by our own retreat chef. If you require vegan options or have any other dietary requirements or allergies we will be happy to accommodate you.
- Daily yoga and meditation with your teacher who will guide you safely through your practice no matter your level of yoga. We will enjoy both flowing energetic classes as well as more restorative stillness practices. All classes are optional and we encourage you to retreat the way you want to.
- Daily trips to discover stunning swim coves and golden sands in the local area where you can choose to swim or just sit and soak in the beautiful sunshine.

"I've been on holidays with The Salt Sisterhood two years in a row now. I love swimming and wanted a getaway where I could visit some amazing wild swimming spots but didn't really know where to start. Lauren took us out to gorgeous hidden gems every day and I had a heavenly week. I also made fabulous female friends who I now swim all year round with. Bliss!"
