Portugal is a windsurfer’s paradise

Portugal is beginning to open for travellers. Located really close to home, Portugal is a going to be a great destination for a last-minute escape this summer. If you simply can’t wait to travel, then start thinking about Portugal for your next windsurfing holiday.

As you start to plan your windsurfing holiday to Portugal, here are our two favourite hotels to get you started in planning your holiday.



Wake up by the seaside, just a few steps away from the water and feel the morning breeze from the ocean. The Hotel FeelViana is dedicated to active tourism and well-being. The FeelViana Sports Center makes the most out of the exceptional natural resources of Viana do Castelo (sea, river and mountain) and invites guests to practice nautical and inland sports activities. There is a variety of choices that are ideal both for experienced athletes and for beginners with stand up paddleboarding, mountain biking, a skate and wake park and two fantastic restaurants including a beach bistro right on the spot! The area of Cabedelo beach is slowly rising through the ranks as one of the best places in the world to learn to windsurf. Here large breakwaters protect the entrance to the port of Viana do Castelo, providing flat water, while good waves can be found further down the bay. This is also one of the best places in the world for windfoiling!

The Martinhal Sagres


The Martinhal is one of Europes top luxury family holiday resorts, with a wide range of activities for all ages, including windsurfing, surfing, SUP, cycling and tennis. The area around this resort is lovely and quiet, and the hotel runs a shuttle into Sagres if you fancy exploring the closest village. Beyond a cluster of restaurants, the main attraction here is the beach. The windsurf school at the stunning five star Martinhal Hotel offers only activities without an engine, making it a very peaceful place.
