Our Base is located in Sagres in PuraVida Divehouse. Sagres is a historical village surrounded by the Natural Park of Costa Vicentina, an ideal place for many outdoor activities, such as Kayaking, mountain biking, trekking, snorkeling, rockclimbing, horseback riding birdwatching, surfing, windsurfing and scubadiving.
Along the Natural Park there is a blend of Mediterranic, Atlantic and North African Vegetation. There are some 750 species, where 100 are endemic, rare or local; 12 do not exist anywhere else in the world, some are considered to be vulnerable and other are protected by European Union.
The birds are some of the main players of this area! Here they find an important migration platform between North Africa and Europe.
The natural diversity of the bottom and the confluence of distinct water masses – Mediterranic, Atlantic and tropical Atlantic – as well as the upwelling of the deep water currents, are a major contribution for the presence of the high level of biodiversity. Little islands, bays and capes are excellent habitats for shelter, feeding, growing and reproduction of many marine species.
PuraVida Outdoor Center will take you to discover the wonders of Lands End, the closest Sun Set from continental Europe, in sustainable and environmentally friendly ways.
