The first ever Nalu Escape will take us to a Portugal’s surfer’s paradise – Baleal – a tiny town with legendary waves, incredible wild landscapes, dramatic sunsets on the edge of the Old World and friendly locals. To us, there’s no place like Portugal on the planet, with its relaxed, laid-back vibe, simple lifestyle in a frame of stunning, untamed nature, amazing fresh food, time-touched Azulejos and mystical historical sites.
