Aqua Ventura
moved our business from eastern Spain to the south-western coast of Portugal in 2012.
The freedom of the ocean and the rugged wilderness is what drew us to this beautiful place a few years earlier.
The Portuguese respect nature and do live life in a very much slower pace then what is often the case in other parts of Europe.
A few days on holiday here and the rest of the world's hustle and bustle slips away, as if it were all a dream...beach cafes, smells of fresh baked fish, red and orange and gold as the sun dips below the water, wild surf, black sea cliffs, thick salty sea air.
Explorers called this the end of the world and it still has the feeling of remoteness,wildness, of the unknown and adventure.
The area is quite mystical, ancient megaliths dot the countryside and towns with names such as Sagres (sacred) harbour the old forts and churches of the middle age explorers.
On our holidays we try to make it as special as possible for everybody, whether it is helping you catch your first wave or out on a walking trip, trekking the back country, living free, exploring, relaxing and having fun.
