Take a five-minute shuttle from the hotel to discover 15 kilometres of gorgeous Blue Flag beaches with sun-kissed sands and waters. Explore the magnificent dunes nature reserve from stilted wooden walkways, which meander gently through the rich coastal ecosystem.


Take a ten-minute stroll to the river-front and marvel at the Dom Luis I bridge – a spectacular double-deck metal arch bridge spanning the River Douro. It was designed and build according to the same architectural practice and technology as the Eiffel Tower (and is two years older).


Check out the Parque Biológico nature reserve – a nearby botanical research and education centre that’s home to hundreds of species of animals and plants. It features activities for the entire family, as well as three kilometres of immersive walking routes through the Vila Nova de Gaia Biological Park.

The Parque Biológico research centre works in harmony with Boeira Garden to sustain its ecosystem as an authentic representation of the region’s lush, original woodland. This symbiotic influence also enriches Boeira Garden’s courtyard, which sits amid the two wings of the hotel. Here, a lush vegetable garden (cultivated in collaboration with the Parque Biológico) ensures seasonal ingredients for the kitchen and a lush, multi-sensorial wellness experience.
