    Any PORTUGUESE SPEAKERS out there? Or Spanish? We'd love to hear from you TODAY...

    We are looking for amazing workaways that love nature, the ocean, waves, sand and of course surfing and bodyboarding as our Surf hostel & Glamping site is next to the beaches of Praia das Maçãs and Praia Grande- the site is called Aldeia da Praia.

    We will host up to 15 glamping tents, fully equipped for guests to relax in our wonderful relaxing pine wood and fresh sea breeze around. Sand, sun and fun paired with beach volley, a fully functioning yoga studio, gardens, different wine, beer and cocktail bars, a wonderful coffee place and lots of nature to relax around. Also we are opening a surf hostel for this season.

    We are looking for fun and responsible workaways to help around reception, the accommodation unites and the site in general. At the moment we are prepping for the season, so lots of upcycling work, sewing, making our own decorations, starting to create our gardens. If you are more into reception work, we can offer you longer placements.

    We encourage the applications from surfers & bodyboarders and everybody who loves the sea to really connect with our place, feel the same energy and enjoy the nature that surrounds us. You need to have a EU passport please.
    Thank you
