Book one of the luxury villas at Martinhal Sagres, where floor-to-ceiling windows and heated pools will immerse you in the landscape. Visit one of the three onsite restaurants and four to-go eateries for healthy, locally-sourced food.
Head a little further south to Memmo Baleeira, where interiors are a study in refined minimalism and draw design inspiration from the surroundings. The hotel rents out bicycles for easy exploration and can organize windsurfing excursions and Jeep trips around the area.
Start the day at Laundry Lounge, a hybrid yoga studio and cafe. Join a morning practice then refuel with coffee and a smoothie bowl.
Fornaria Memmo is an ideal spot to have lunch after a morning of active adventure. Try fresh fish tacos, gambas al ajillo (shrimp sautéed with garlic), or a goat cheese and fig salad.
Regroup at the hotel before dinner. A hearty bowl of Cataplana Algarvia (the region’s speciality stew) is the best way to warm up after a day in the breezy outdoors and nowhere does it better than A Casinha. The cozy, rustic spot also serves a range of bottles from Portugal's Douro Valley.
Have an açai shake and a cappuccino at the centrally-located Caffe Espresso, where you can look out onto the water and plan your day.
Once you’re back on dry land, head to Restaurant Mar à Vista. The simple, homestyle spot specializes in local preparations of fresh seafood in dishes like Portuguese monkfish with rice and shrimp.
Finish your trip with dinner at Mum’s, where the menu is an ode to Portuguese gastronomic heritage with an emphasis on pescatarian and vegetarian offerings. The seasonally-inspired creations might include items like marinated seitan with pumpkin and stewed plums or scallop carpaccio with passion fruit. Wash it all down with the Hemingway daiquiri or Frida Kahlo margarita.
