OceanBlue Oasis is home to WildGym using the outdoors for workouts to burn fat, increase fitness and stretch the body. Get the tough stuff out the way and feel awesome for the rest of the day.

DIET AND NUTRITION

Simple, Clean and Fresh.

Months of sunshine, good soil and warm water hail an Eden like climate perfect for outdoor growing – us included. Local markets have the freshest, tastiest fruits and veggies, incredible local meat and probably the best seafood in the world. Exercise and activity over the seven days will make you firm up and lose weight. If you want to max up on weight loss, eat a healthy breakfast, lunch and dinner (it’s not hard in Portugal). Ideally no snacks in-between and especially no bread. Coffee is awesome and at 60 cents per shot it’s a great stimulant for exercise (and enthusiasm). Water bottled from the source in the Monchique mountains is aplenty, it’s just the temptation of the divine vine verde to work through. The surrounding area is blessed with a vast array of quality restaurants and eateries. All manner of tastes and styles are catered for including specialty foods, vegan and vegee, Brazilian steaks, Portuguese seafood and Italian delights. With our local knowledge, we can direct you to your perfect gastronomic pleasure.
