About Eolis

If you can dream it...

A bit of our History

Once upon a time in the Algarve

First Beach Cabin in 2009

After 3 years of trying to make authorities understand that Eolis and its guests would need a Cabin on the beach for some storage and support, it was finnally a reality!

Beach Cabin in 2016

After nearly a decade our beach cabin kept being a great help.

2018 Beach Cabin got a beautiful graffiti.

We decided to have a painting on the side of the cabin to help inspire good thoughts.

We asked SEN to make our cabin more radical and colourful. It was a success!


Eolis Mission

Eolis proposes to promote healthy sport, scrupulously complying with all current safety rules and respecting the natural environment that surrounds us. We want to turn your vacation into a good challenge. We stand out nationally and internationally in the teaching of Kitesurf and in the organization of Stand Up Paddle tours.


Eolis Vision

We want to contribute even more significantly to the offer of quality tourist entertainment products in Tavira, in the Algarve and in the world, gaining greater prominence in the so-called ``low season`` offers, functioning as an engine for the sustainability of the destination, in its environmental aspects and social and economic aswell.


Eolis Values

Honesty, Solidarity, Responsibility and Integrity are our values. We are committed to developing sustainable practices and we accept our responsibility to actively practice healthy lifestyles. Since 2004, our customers trust us, so we will do everything to anticipate, understand and respect their needs. We choose to be responsible for those we captivate, as Antoine de Saint-Exupéry tells us in the book ``The Little Prince``.


20 years in the game

April 2004 this journey became a reality.

Growing up looking at the sea, feeling the wind and diving in the waves offered us a natural inner passion for nature. That made Sandra Santos imagine and create the project Eolis: a watersports school located in the south of Portugal, in the Algarve more specifically in Cabanas de Tavira, right beside the beautiful and romantic town of Tavira. You will realize that Eolis represents a simple life style: a combination of wind, water and friends that promotes an incredible sensation of well-being and freedom, always in a safe way.

A dream...

came true.

"Amazing experience today SUPing on the Dragon river in Odeleite!! Wow! So very cool. Great instructions and careful guidance from Sandra as my wife and I were 1st timers. The Sound of Silence…spectacular views, wildflowers everywhere! Refuelled with a Delicious Portuguese lunch afterwards. Beautiful drive through the countryside and paddling across the Dragon! Obrigado Eolis!"

"My husband and I had a one hour stand up paddle board lesson with Andre. He was very patient and kind in helping to get us up and going. Since we had only one lesson more than 10 years ago we really needed a refresher. Although it took some stamina to stand up and keep going we really enjoyed our time on the Ria Formosa. We would highly recommend Eolis for lessons. We can’t wait for our next adventure."

USA Elany M.

"My second experience the Eolis team at Cabanas/Portugal, was a teambuilding event, trying (for the first time) standup paddle with Aventurasocial! SandraSantos is just great! Great competence, extremely friendly, a cool leadership, everybody happy from 13 to 73 years old! Thanks Sandra! We will come back"
