Porto Bay Serra Golf

Surrounded by nature and a golf course nearby!


The Double/Twin bedrooms are bright and airy with nature just outside the window.  Cable TV, bathroom with a bath, dressing gowns and facilities to make a tea or coffee on demand.  Heating is available in cooler months, quite possible due to its mountain location.


To relax in the gorgeous lounge with afternoon tea by the open fire after a round at the adjacent golf course.  The locals hold a small street market at the weekend.  The local park has deer, goats – even a kangaroo!  Head over to Camacha to watch the basket weavers at work in the traditional way – souvenir territory perhaps?

A visit up Pico do Arieiro is very rewarding – it is the 3rd highest peak on the island – but go early for the best views.

Get the hotel to advise you on a levada walk through the Laurisilva forest, now a UNESCO World Heritage site.

This really is a lovely hotel in a tranquil location, very close to the santo da Serra golf course.
