Built in the 1960s, Memmo Baleeira hotel has kept its swinging seaside perch and whitewashed exterior, and added breezy coastal cool to its interiors. The sea rules this resort: from bright blue cushions to watery visions from the windows, it’ll have you chasing the waves in no time.
The Memmo Spa has three treatment rooms, a gym, a Turkish bath and a small heated pool – there's a variety of marine-themed massages and beauty treatments available, as well as Shiatsu and reflexology.
Take to the seas and shores for a spot of surfing, windsurfing, diving, fishing and blokarting (or, land yachting). Boat trips around the bay and dolphin-spotting expeditions can be arranged through Cape Cruiser (+351 919 715 175; www.capecruiser.org). On land, explore the Moorish architecture of Sagres or trek through the world’s largest cork-tree forests.
