The Salty Pelican surf and yoga retreat sits snuggled between the sun-dappled shores of Cascais bay and Sintras dramatic mountain range. Cascais renowned for its glorious stretch of white sandy beaches which are simply stunning, beautiful palaces, cosmopolitan vibrancy and as Lisbon's most sophisticated beach destination. With over 300 days of sun per year, you spend most of your time outdoors, even in winter.
