Activities & Experiences
We have a fantastic range of activities, either in-house or available from our local business partners. Our guests can enjoy a work out session in our gym, a splash in any of our swimming pools, a boat trip up river, a night of star-gazing, or for those more adventurous there is kayaking, stand up paddle and surfing amongst many other experiences.
Guests staying in Milfontes with the Duna Parque Hotel Group can enjoy the activities available at any of the Group's properties.
Taking a boat up the Mira River in our Moliceiro boat is a wonderful trip, least of all to see the village and the surrounding area from a totally different perspective. There are two different trips: one to Montalvo and one to St Maria.
Montalvo trip: leaves every day at 15.00, 16.00 and 17.00.
St Maria trip: leaves every day at 11.00. There must be at least 10 people booked for this trip to go ahead.
River crossings: every 15 mns between 09.30 and 11.00 and between 14.00 and 15.00. From 15.00 the crossings are hourly hour until 1700.
The Moliceiro boat trips and crossings operate seasonally from 15th June until 15th September. For more details, including pier location, itinerary and prices please ask at reception.
Dark Sky Observation
This is a magical experience. You feel you're in a whole different world. Our hotel in Mina de São Domingo, the Alentejo Star Hotel-São Domingos, is under one of the starriest skies in the world. Our telescope, a GPS and computer-controlled 14”MEADE LX200, allows for direct dark sky observation - you will be able to see billions of stars, constellations and far away galaxies such as the Milky Way.
Next to the observatory, there is an area for amateur astronomers to set up their own equipment. They may also have access to the observatory’s programme and information databases.
Book your star-gazing slot in advance at the hotel reception.
