At the doorstep of the Atlantic Ocean, situated in Vale da Telha, Aljezur, at the south west coast of Portugal and in a nature reserve, you find surfers paradise: Birds of Paradise.


Fully renovated in 2021 with respect for it’s natural surroundings, this boutique surf lodge is an inspiring, conscious, vibrant, family friendly and easy-going space to rebalance, enjoy nature, (learn to) surf and have fun. 

Birds of Paradise offers 3 to 7-day stays, including a delicious and healthy breakfast. In addition surf lessons (for all levels), on-site nanny services, dinner nights, bikes, yoga classes, massages can be booked. Expect phenomenal days spent in the ocean improving surf skills, flowing into a massage or yoga class, chilling at the solar heated (from mid April) salt water pool and enjoying an organised dinner in the garden or at the rooftop terrace with other guests.

In the winter months (December to March) we open as a co-living place. Our rooms can be rented per month and the rental includes free coffee and tea, super fast internet, floor heating in all rooms and living areas, daily cleaning of the communal areas and weekly room cleaning. All rooms have their own private work desk and there is the large  table in the living room with enough space to work as well as the bar in the kitchen. Off course you can make use of all the new and modern facilities like the well equipped kitchen, the pool, surf board storage area etcetera. Perfect for digital nomads or people that want to leave their normal work environment and experience co-working and get inspired in a beautiful natural environment with world class surf around the corner. 

Birds of Paradise is the ideal place for adventurous spirits (big and small ones)

to surf and stay, surrounded by breath taking sceneries. 

At Birds of Paradise we care about your well-being and the environment.

As big ocean lovers, we would like to let you experience the positive effects of the sea on your physical, mental and emotional health. Spending time around the ocean, and particularly when surfing,  can improve mood levels and genuinely make you feel more alive. We feel energised and relaxed at the same time as our body delights in its natural environment. Being around water gives the brain and the senses a rest from overstimulation and stress levels will drop. Then there is the physical sensation after a surf session: feeling calm, at ease and happy.


We simply love to put that dream vacation together for You!
