Martinhal Beach Resort & Hotel in Sagres opens “M Bar”, first ever innovative “family surf bar” – a chic surfy bar complete with children’s facilities and entertainment.
Martinhal Beach Resort & Hotel, located near the historic town of Sagres on the unspoiled Western Algarve and surrounded by the Natural Costa Vicentina Park and Martinhal beach on its doorstep, has all the elements for a fabulous surf holiday.
The region enjoys many sunny days – temperatures in the sun are around 20°C in the winter and has a number of sporty activities to choose from. The 12 beaches in a few minutes’ drive from the resort are almost deserted and have great surf and both accommodation and air fares are available at very affordable prices in the winter and spring.
The local surf scene has been one of Europe’s best kept secrets – Martinhal Beach Resort & Hotel is Portugal’s first 5-star surf destination with access to the best surf beaches on the Costa Vicentina such as Cordoama, Castelejo, Amado, Carrapeteira and Arrifana. Combined with the 5-star facilities for childcare, children-friendly restaurants and spa at Martinhal, coming on a surf holiday with the family is a breeze!
This new surf vibe in town – M Bar – is THE family surf bar with the best surf themed ambience featuring a stage for live entertainment, cozy sofas, an incredible 1970´s VW camper van booth, a dedicated kids bar with games area adjacent, as well as a connecting door to an outdoor protected play area. Start the day with an energetic continental breakfast, grab a Sushi or Bento box at lunch, enjoy afternoon tea with scones and cakes, chill out after a day of surfing with special drinks and bar food or dance to the tunes of our resident DJ. “Whatever floats your board, we have it” – three types of tap beer as well as tap cider, a fair collection of Portuguese wine and sparkling wine, and the widest range of spirits offered in the region.
In the true spirit of surf, the design concepts and decoration of M Bar has used local designers and photographers in its conception. Jutta Schiffler, a local designer and windsurfer has worked closely with our team on the interior decoration concept. We have used a local carpenter to produce some of the furniture. The photo collage wallpaper has been done by an Algarvean designer who is a surfer himself – Joao Rei. Joao lives in Sagres, is passionate about surf, art and music. Joao’s portfolio: www.cantsurfnaked.com. The wallpaper uses photographs of surf life in the Costa Vicentina area by Ricardo Bravo, a famous local photographer on surf themes.
M Bar will be opening on Saturday 16th March with a launch party (7pm – 10pm) – live music, children’s entertainment, finger food, cocktails and special Absolut Vodka tasting and cocktails all evening.
