Morning and afternoon surf lessons, lasting 2 hours per session are included in the package, so you can experience the thrill of catching your first wave, or polishing up on your previous surf skills.
During the training session, held on our rooftop or the local beach, our trainer will lead you through exercises designed to improve fitness. The sessions are catered for all levels of fitness, so don’t please don’t be daunted if it’s been a while since you stretched - you’ll be planking in no time!
Journey to the wild, west coast of Portugal for an afternoon adventure like no other. You’ll hike your way deep into the coast to discover its most secret and spectacular spots. As you watch the sun melt into the Atlantic, you'll fill up with delicious local food and wine, squeezing every last drop out of the day, then hike back out under the rising stars.
Our yoga sessions are held on our rooftop, and any level of yoga experience is welcome. Our instructor will work to the groups abilities and set the routines to energise you in the morning to start your day, and relax you in the evenings to stretch out your muscles.
Explore the peculiar coastline that lines Lagos with its historic caves and grottos on a paddleboard. No experience necessary as we’ll give you a short lesson and guided tour around our local coast. If the conditions are a little wild, we’ll head inland to a Portuguese lake so you can explore the Algarvian countryside. We have the option to wakeboard at our cable park here in Lagos if conditions are not optimum for paddleboarding.

"Bura Bootcamp is not your standard "bootcamp". We were in line for something different...and far more exciting! Bura Surfhouse was really the icing on the cake :) The staff (and I use “staff” in the loosest possible terms) are awesome, friendly, and extremely helpful. It becomes a lifestyle you won’t want to leave behind.... sigh."
"Bura is the best place I have ever stayed! In over 30 countries I have never felt so at home. Family is an understatement... I felt closer to the Bura family than I do my own... Do yourself a favor and stay here, even if its just for the people! I love it and will, for sure be back!"
