One of the warmest corners of Europe, Portugal is a dream destination for soaking up the sun all year around. Playful dolphins splash in the Sado Estuary, Portuguese delicacies adorn the dinner table and vibrant festivals bring the streets to life. Althought the climate in the Algarve region is similar to that of south west Australia, Portugal's unique flair cannot be replicated anywhere else in the world.
Some of the most fascinating destinations in Portugal are the islands on the Atlantic Ocean away from the mainland – Madeira and its little neighbour Porto Santo. Both islands offer the perfect escape for those seeking a quirky alternative to the typical “sun, sea and sand” holidays. Madeira is a must visit destination for all hiking and walking enthusiasts, offering countless rocky trails that twist and turn along the banks of the famous Levadas (canals). Surrounded by clear, sparkling waters, the coasts of these two delightful islands are idyllic for keen canoeists and sailors, and offer an array of enchanting experiences such as paragliding, and dolphin and whale watching. The remote location of Madeira also makes it a serene retreat for guests seeking relaxation, detox or de-stressing and rejuvenating holidays.
As a spa destination, Portugal offers an optimal balance between wellness and active leisure. Our resorts in Portugal offer a diverse range of different packages, from Ayurveda to spa to detox holidays. The spa retreats in Portugal specialise in thalassotherapy – treatments with use of the treasures of the sea (sea mud, algae sea salt, mineral-rich sea water).
