TRIPWIX offers unique destinations in a little-known Algarve – one that offers dramatic scenery, golden beaches and so much more. Let our local ambassador, Celia Fernandes, guide you as you experience the sights, tastes and smells of Portugal’s best-kept secret.

What would you like to share about yourself and your destination?

I have over 25 years professional experience in Luxury Hospitality. I love to share the best of what my area has to offer with my guests.

The Algarve is the most peaceful place with the best golden sand beaches and blue-green ocean. It offers genuine hospitality served with our best wines and traditional flavors from sea and land. All of this – just across the Atlantico!

How do you enjoy your free time?

For me, the PERFECT day is on the beach with family and friends. I also like to discover unknown places.

Share with us some special elements about your destination.

We have the best simple grilled fish. The Algarve is a place where you still can find people doing things in a traditional way, like fishing, cooking and cultivating the land. We are also very friendly people.

What memories do you want your guests to take away with them?

I want my guests to take away happy memories of our unspoiled beaches and genuine Portuguese hospitality.

Apart from its wine, my area is famous for its pottery. Pottery-making is a tradition here – one that dates back for centuries. Porches Pottery makes beautiful hand-painted pottery in the majolica style – you must take some home with you!

What should your guests do while they are there?

The Algarve has some amazing sea caves that must be seen! I also recommend a luxury yacht tour for a unique and unforgettable experience.

How do you sum up your destination?

The Algarve is the best-kept secret destination. I truly look forward to introducing new friends to this special place.
