Full description
Explore the hidden coastline of southwest Algarve from the unique perspective of a stand-up paddleboard, and discover places you would never see on a boat tour. Pick-up and drop-off are provided (please ask for meeting points) between Lagos and Sagres and you will be transferred through the Natural Park to a paradise beach.
If you've never tried stand-up paddleboarding before, then you are in for a treat! Guides will show you the basics and all safety techniques. All paddleboard equipment is provided, including wetsuits and buoyancy aids. All you need to bring is a towel and swimming costume. A lot easier than surfing, you'll soon be standing on boards that are big and stable.

Then, it’s time to hit the coast, starting at a slow pace, stopping to enjoy magnificent grottoes and rock formations. Visit hidden beaches, and venture inside dark caves. Look out for birds above you, and fish below. You will even get the opportunity to try some cliff jumping for an adrenaline kick, or splash around and swim for those who prefer to take things gently.

Paddle back to the beach, or catch the shuttle, depending on weather conditions and each individual group’s desire.

Une activité fantastique - des falaises et grottes époustouflantes.

The provider was easy to reach, very responsive even though we were booking at the last minute, trying to accommodate our needs. The equipment was fine, coaching ok, and guide friendly. The group of people was of course loads of fun. Being on the ocean on a SUP is a very cool experience, paddling around cliffs, rocks, into caves, swimming in little inlets and jumping off rocks, also cool. Waiting on the pictures now but overall unforgettable!

Considering the conditions (waves/tide) Nelson suggested to change the location as well as the daytime (break of dawn instead of middle of the day). We‘ve been a small group of 4 which I personally prefer over the normal size of 10+. He also took pictures of us and the different sceneries which he sent a week after the tour. Nelson is polite and knowledgeable as he grew up in that area.
