Wellness (re)treat

Hello :)

I’d be grateful for some retreat suggestions please. I’m in need of some RnR so looking for somewhere that offers hiking, yoga, spa, etc.

The places I’ve found so far seem to be waaaaay off the beaten track and a bit too much on the retreat side. I’d prefer somewhere that has the option to go out on day trips, visit the beach, go out for dinner and so on.

Above all though, I want the option to take a trip out to see dolphins. I’m dolphin mad so would hate to visit Portugal and miss the chance to see these wonderful creatures.

I’ll be travelling alone and haven’t decided on a particular area yet so am very much open to any suggestions.

Thank you

This may be too small but is close to lovely restaurants, the beach and dolphin boat trips can be taken from the Marina, a few miles away. Swimming with dolphins is also an option at nearby Zoomarine.

Thank you AlgarveAddict.

That’s exactly the kind of thing I’m looking for. The reviews say Albufeira is 10 mins away so I guess I could do a dolphin trip from there. I’d much rather see them out in the wild from a boat than swim with them but thank you for the suggestion.

The reviews suggest the meals are juice/soup based. I’m not sure I could cope with that, I want to indulge as opposed to detox lol but I will look into it a bit more.
