The Dawn Collective Shala (Google Maps) is located between the picturesque Arrifana Beach (2 km) and Aljezur village (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.
