SURROUNDING – ARRIFANA / ALJEZUR, PORTUGAL.
The Dawn Collective Shala (Google Maps) is located between the picturesque Arrifana Beach (2 km) and the little village Aljezur (7 km), where you will find everything you need like supermarkets, cafés & restaurants, bakery, organic shops and a charming local farmers market on saturdays.
The stunning and unspoiled beaches of Arrifana, Monte Clerigo and Amoreira allow for endless summer days & unreal sunsets. All beaches are easy to access and offer great surf conditions. The jungle-ish hinterland with magic forests of pine, eucalyptus and cork can be explored with nature walks, mountain bike or donkey/horse rides.
The Dawn Collective Shala has a wooden floor and catches the first rays of sun in the morning. Yoga mats, blankets and blocks are available as well as a big lawn to hang out after class, filtered water, tea and delicious espresso. Also massage treatments are available at the Dawn Collective Shala.
