People call it, “God’s little paradise.”   This island is very rich in bio-diversity.   It is known to be the home of the smallest primate in the world, the Philippine Tarsier, and the mysterious formation of hills that turn into a chocolate color during the dry season, thus the name Chocolate Hills.  It also cradles the tourist islands of Panglao and Balicasag, which is famous for diving with a hefty school of jack fish.   There is another gem in Bohol that remains low-key and the perfect place to learn SUP.   The Loboc River is one of the most beautiful in the Philippines. Its distinct jewel-like-jade color on a sunny day and calm waters where a waterfall can be found and ends in the sea makes this a perfect destination for SUP. Our main sports center and our accommodation, Fox & The Firefly Cottages, is located next to this enchanting river.


Fox & The Firefly Cottages is our little sanctuary for travelers in search of a unique experience. Enjoy local dishes in an intimate and peaceful riverside setting.  Designed in the modern Filipino tradition, our cottages offer a comfortable stay with mosquito nets and hot & cold showers.



Land and SUP Yoga classes will be lead by a local Yogi (bio to come)

This will be Lucy’s 3rd Retreat with us as assist teacher. Lucy travelled to the Philippines in June 2017 to scout the area and build our relationship with Sup Tours Philippines in preparation for this amazing retreat. She will be your go to support person during the retreat. She is a ASI Level 1 SUP instructor and Studio Pilates – Matt and Reformer qualified. She enjoys SUP racing, charity paddles and SUP yoga. She looks forward to giving all retreat attendees the support and confidence they need to try new things or further their experience.




Whitsundays Retreat May 2017


Like a flock of glorious flamingos we flew off to tropical Queensland for a week to escape winter. Palm Bay Resort (@palmbayresort), was the perfect retreat location, boasting its own tranquil lagoon for Sup yoga, beach front bungalows and magnificent views. The private resort is accessed by water ferry and it felt like our own slice of paradise.

Our Yogi, Kat from (@yogakiss) lead us through a beautiful week of meditation and SUP/yoga with stunning sunrise/sunsets for our backdrop. Lucy (@supwilde) our accredited paddle boarding instructor took the group through their introduction to paddling, paddle tour and a Sup Pilates class. We always throw some adventure into our retreats and a day trip to Whitehaven Beach, Hill Inlet and snorkeling on the Great Barrier Reef was a must!

We will absolutely be running this retreat again. Expressions of interest welcome!



Collaborative Perfection

We connected with beautiful Asha on social media, the timing was perfection….as was the swimwear and weather.

On a Christmas vacation north we worked a little shoot into the mix…..because we love what we do.

We first collab’d with Finch Swimwear on our Whitsundays SUP/Yoga retreat at the exquisite Palm Bay Resort. Our glorious yogi Kat from @Yogakiss was absolutely stunning while teaching and wearing Finch. It was the beginning of a love affair and we were so stoked to meet Claire from Finch Swimwear in person and pick up the new range on our recent road trip.

Being unfamiliar with the area we asked Asha to choose the shoot location and boy did she deliver! Fingal Heads, Northern NSW was the perfect spot and being there early meant we owned the beach….perfection.

Asha (@ashalouisepeck) is the founder of Gold Coast Girls In Business and you can find them on FB and Insta (@gc.girlsinbusiness). We look forward to connecting with Asha and her network again soon!
