Responsible tourism: Alentejo surfing holiday in Portugal

Environment

We are located at Vila Nova de Milfontes in the Alentejo & Vicentina Coastal area with the magnificent coastline which is part of the PNSACV (SW Portugal's Natural Park). The Parque Natural do Sudoeste Alentejano e Costa Vicentina is the largest protected coastal Natural Park in SW Europe.
And the Surf is one of the most popular ways to explore this SW Portugal Area. As the sport of surfing grows, so does its environmental impact.
Surf gear is made of non-biodegradable materials such as synthetic resin surfboards, neoprene wetsuits and petroleum-based surf wax. These can have a negative ecological footprint but the biggest danger is the non civic behavior of some surfers, contributing to increase the footprint in some of the best beaches in Portugal, beaches that belong to all of us.
So we have decided to give formation to the youngest children about the technique and given special attention to the eco behavior that is directly linked to the “surfer” concept, like to respect the nature and the others helping to protect a preserve all the beaches, making part of the amazing symbiotic surfing world.
Adults also have a really important role on this attitude that actually is contributing directly to keep the beaches a safer place to stay and visit.
Many of them go to the beach using their on bikes carrying their boards on it, they use natural sun protector and they use only the accesses to the beaches that are marked.
To help the Natural Park also did an important project to preserve and protect a big area near the coastline protecting the primary dunes using signs, wood and natural obstacles warning about this sensitive areas. There are also boards along the coastline with specific information about the culture, fauna and flora.

Community

The hotet/accommodation that we use during this surfing holiday is locally owned and as the most beautiful view of River Mira, providing an amazing view over the Atlanctic ocean also.
This accommodation is in Vila Nova de Milfontes, considered the “princess of Alentejo Coast”. This village is one of the more important populations on the area being the second biggest one with only 3000 thousand residents, local economy leaves mainly from the Agriculture, fishing and tourism, being this last one seasonal.
One of our big objectives is to fight against that creating new leisure and activity products where people can visit us along the year. We already have the most important that is an amazing scenery of nature and good weather 350 days a year.
In our products we try to involve local suppliers, promoting the local economy allowing restaurants, accommodations and other services to grow and to create genuine and higher quality service
We provide our clients local transfers creating better access to all facilities. Other thing that we do is to work with local and certified Surf Instructors creating job opportunities.
