Alvor Lagoon: The strong, summer Nortada wind and Alvor Lagoon's waist-deep water offer the ideal conditions to learn and practice kitesurfing in the Algarve. In the past, the PKRA Kiteboarding World Tour was held here in Alvor and it was recently praised again by world sailor, Alex Thomson Meia Praia: Perfect for trial lessons, the Meia Praia is a long, spacious beach that offers great conditions to fly power kites on land and to try out your first body drags in shallow water. However, the offshore wind makes this spot only suitable for beginners or very advanced kiters; intermediates should stay inside the safe lagoon. Wave spots: When the southwest or southeast winds blow, Meia Praia receives a great hit of swell and waves. For experienced kiters, there are also some bigger swells to be found on the west coast- as well as a handful of amazing wave spots like Bordeira, Carrapateira, and Milfontes. All of these have several kilometers of open sandy beaches and constant waves. Due to the thermic conditions, these spots are best experienced during the spring and autumn.

The Destination

Close enough to the buzzing tourist hotspot Lagos, but far enough to enjoy the relaxed vibe of nature, the camp sits right in the middle of several excellent kite, surf and SUP spots- but this is just the beginning of why we love Burgau. Don't get us started on the food! Screamingly fresh fish straight off the boat, Portuguese delicacies, international favourites – you name it. Oh, and did we mention the laid-back little beach and the super scenic walks along the cliffs…? The Southwest Algarve is a very special place, especially for watersports and tours. Located on a tip of land between the South-facing and West-facing coasts of Sagres and Lagos, there’s always an array of wind and swell directions just around the corner. No matter what activity you want to do- kite lessons, surfing or SUP in Lagos – the perfect conditions are usually just a short drive away. The rough scenery and unspoiled nature around Lagos and the Costa Vicentina natural park are breathtaking. Our region has one of the biggest and best-preserved coastlines in Europe. Some of the most beautiful places are only accessible by water – which makes it extremely exciting to explore this region on top of a SUP board or under a kite. Sandy beaches, crystalline lagoons, flat waters and fun waves – Southwest Algarve has it all.

The Experience

Set between craggy cliffs and sandy shores, the Ocean Spirits Lodge is perfectly located to enjoy the best of what this windy corner of the world has to offer. Get out and explore the nearby cliffs, recharge your batteries with an energising yoga session, take to the water for a surf or a SUP, and discover the true beauty of the Algarve coastline by kite.

Kitesurf

The local kite camp offers kite lessons for all levels and ages of rider (from 14 to 75) at the two top spots Alvoor Lagoon and Meia Praia (around 15km by car). Professionalism, security, and fun are guaranteed. All of the camp's instructors are experienced and have international VDWS and IKO certificates and teach on brand new equipment from the market leader, North Kiteboarding.

All courses include:

  • Experienced licensed (VDWS/IKO) Kite Instructor
  • All kite equipment + wetsuit
  • SUP Tours instead of kite lessons on windless days (pre-bookings)
  • Transfer from the lodge to the spots
  • Buddy system (1 Kite / 2 students)

Surf

With two surfable coastlines and a handful of beautiful breaks within a few minutes drive, this is an ideal place to take to the water on a surfboard or longboard. When the wind direction is right, there are a couple of nearby spots that promise to serve up some big rippers for the more experienced surfers, while beginners get to grips with their skills on the gentle rollers and soft swell in front of the sandbars. Lessons, board rentals, and local surf guides are all available.

Yoga

Relaxing or rejuvenating, serene or supercharged; enjoy some yoga sessions led by an experienced and intuitive instructor. Whether it's to stretch out your hard-worked muscles after a full day of kiteboarding or simply to remind your body how to relax, yoga is the ultimate way to begin (or end) your days in Burgau.

Accommodation

The Ocean Spirits Lodge is a spacious, whitewashed villa with 6 luxury rooms. It's the ultimate base for both solo travelers looking to connect with like-minded salty souls, and small groups of friends or families who are keen to find a place with an authentic Algarve atmosphere. The shared lodge offers the chance to socialize with others in the common areas and to enjoy some time alone in the privacy of your own space. The lodge sits just 300 meters away from the gorgeous cliffs overlooking Burgau's surf-washed shores, and is within walking distance of the next beach. Though the lodge is completely surrounded by nature, the buzzing town of Lagos (where you'll find supermarkets, bars, and restaurants) is only a stone's throw away. The hosts also organize evening activities at the lodge, including pizza nights, movie screenings at the outdoor cinema, and other social events.
