Don't wanna leave!

The Salty Pelican is such a great place! I stayed there for one week and can say: it's not enough... Both yoga classes, one in the morning, one in the afternoon were a good experience.

Afterwards I felt relaxed and fully in line with mind & soul. Surfing was great as well, sometime it the group was bit too big, so you had to pay attention to all the people in the water.

But nevertheless it was a great start into surfing and I'll try it more often!

At Salty Pelican you're welcomed with open arms, awesome shower, comfortable rooms and delicious breakfast.
