Latest Adventures

☀️Our second instalment on our 60 second adventures we play Glide and Seek🐚 
Stand up paddleboarding is possibly the closest we’ll get to walking on water, granting freedom to explore between secluded beaches and bays, barely accessible even in a little boat.

With nature at play, this location is all about timing. When the conditions are right, the rugged wave swept coastline transforms into a serene world of crystal clarity. Hundreds of seabirds perched on the craggy outcrops watch as we paddle past rocky pinnacles, between azure grottos and through caves and caverns. 

Paddling inside, the water turns translucent turquoise where the sun filters through giant skylights like eyes to the sky. 

We wait for perfect conditions. With even a little wave, it’s a different world and a constant reminder that nature is boss. Again; thanks to @procamfilms for scaling seamounts, launching the drone from 10ft sups and flying through skylights to get the best shots. #sup #standuppaddle #activeholiday #burgau #algarve #wanderlust #travel #redpaddleco #bloggerlife #travellifestyle #workabroad #travelbug #takethescenicroute

☀️🌵Introducing OceanBlue’s 60 seconds of Adventure. We’ve made 6 short stories, exploring some of the activities on offer from our little hideaway on the hill🌳☀️

🐟On our first 60 second adventure we walk and swim the beautiful south. Baby blue skies, aquarium clear waters, spinning shoals. Only us and our two towels above the tide line. 🏝️

The old fishermen’s routes form a myriad of trails connecting our hilltop with craggy cliffs, leafy valleys, and quiet coves eventually linking villages, shady lunch stops and perfect swim spots. 
Thanks to @procamfilms, amazing footage, impeccably capturing why we are spellbound with this perfect parcel of Portugal.

A great shot on our SeaSafari yesterday in the lagoons, so contrasting to the cliffs and caves of nearby Ponta and perfectly showing the diverse landscape of this wonderful corner of the Algarve. It’s also great to be back working with @procamfilms 
These guys have been shooting the boats for us since 2015 and it’s incredible to see how the skills, tech and styles have developed…. lots more on this to follow  #portugal #algarve #lagosportugal #boat #cheetahcatamaran #activeholidays #wanderlust #postcardsfromtheworld #oceanblue #boatlife #boat #superportugal #algarvecoast
