Fernando Pimenta, olympic athlete and world canoe champion, chose the Vila Baleira Porto Santo hotel for family holidays

Portuguese canoeist Fernando Pimenta, holder of two Olympic medals, was at Vila Baleira Porto Santo and Vila Baleira Suites to rest and discover the charms of the “golden island” after winning the title of world champion in K1 1000 for the third time and revalidating his world champion titles in the marathon discipline in K1 short race and K2 marathon long race.

Vila Baleira Porto Santo All Inclusive and Vila Baleira Suites are the reference hotels for family holidays on Porto Santo Island. Its privileged location allows you to transform your vacation into an absolute rest. Porto Santo is known for its stunning beaches, clear waters and a very relaxed atmosphere. After a season of intense effort, Fernando Pimenta let himself surrender to the charms of the paradisiacal island, where he was able to relax with unique moments shared with his family, charge his batteries and carry out various activities to get to know the island.

Among the multiple activities, we highlight the walks along Porto Santo beach with its extensive sand, diving in the clear waters, hiking trails, jeep tours that allowed him to explore the natural beauty of Miradouro das Flores, climbing to the top of Pico Ana Ferreira (with stunning views over the island), perform the Vitapool Circuits at the Thalasso SPA center (followed by a relaxing massage) and taste the good Portuguese cuisine in the Vila Baleira restaurants. Fernando Pimenta also had the opportunity to try a “Bola de Berlin” for the first time on the beach (a free offer in the All Inclusive Plus category)!

There was also time to visit the Cipreia Diving Center, which welcomed Fernando Pimenta for one of the available courses. The Olympic canoeist had his “baptism”, loved the whole experience and promised to return to finish the course.

As Porto Santo is a Biosphere Reserve and a small island paradise with fine golden sand, turquoise water and a particularly diverse marine fauna, this destination is perfect for diving, offering all the necessary conditions for a one of the richest experiences in the world.
