Portugal (and especially Algarve) is the destination of excellence for health tourism, with a wide range of top-quality medical services. This tendency has been increasing in recent years and originally began when patients started traveling from Northern Europe.

One of the great examples of this trend is people traveling to the Algarve from the UK, Sweden, France, Switzerland, Germany, Belgium, Netherlands, Denmark and Finland, where they enjoy dental tourism and wellness in this easy to reach region of Southern Portugal.

Main Reasons to travel to Algarve:

· Everyone speaks English
· Amazing weather with breathtaking scenery
· Marvelous beaches and beautiful golf courses
· Budget-friendly and safe.

Today’s strangers are tomorrow’s friends! Explore the mountains, castles, cathedrals, delicious cuisine and much more to connect with the deep culture and traditions the Algarve has to offer.

The Algarve is one of the most accessible destinations in Europe with most well-known, low-cost airlines serving Faro Airport.

Whether you are coming from just a short flight from London or overseas from Canada, we can recommend a wide range of choices for your accomodation.

Why would one travel into the unknown, when the Algarve is so close by?

The secret is out!

Dental Medicine is a very fascinating and complex field. Fortunately, now that the world has become seemingly “smaller”, quality has never been so accessible to those seeking a perfect and self-assured smile!

In fact, traveling and knowing the most important facts about a destination is nowadays quite easy, so there is no reason for misconceptions! By the way: those looking for an economical and friendly country with ultra-competent Dental Medicine should already know where to go.

Are you looking for a clue?

    • Which country has given the world such valuable innovations as the All-on-4 treatment concept (same-day dental implants)?
    • In addition, what European territory has seen its Faculties of Dental Medicine selected by a growing number of foreign students?

It is no longer a secret that Portugal has some of the world’s best Dental Medicine, both in terms of practice and education. Anyone who visits the Algarve can witness such sophistication, adaptability, and excellent quality. The best part is, of course, that you do not have to pay as much as in other places!

Barlavento: the symbiosis between adventure, health, and peacefulness

It is no coincidence the western part of the Algarve is known as the Barlavento (or “the Windward”). According to Nautical science, that name represents the side of the boat that is facing the wind. Along with such influence comes, however, a scent of adventure!

In fact, some of the most important maritime discoveries made by Portuguese explorers, more than five centuries ago, were based in this region. Nowadays, and even though the sea is simply inviting us to rest on the beach, there are still some hidden adventures.

What could be more heroic and brave than exploring the intriguing caves of the Barlavento? But let us not forget about the opportunity to admire the magnificent cliffs or to enjoy the company of the nearby (and always friendly) dolphins!

Of course, those looking for other challenges can find them both below the waves or at the top of the Monchique Range. Naturally, however, not everything about the western side of the Algarve has to be about strong emotions.

Feeling tired? Looking for silence and some peace of mind? Then indulge yourself in one of the best spa towns Portugal has to offer! As time goes by, the Barlavento region is growing as a health tourism destination.

There is a little bit of everything for everyone in this Iberian paradise. Just relax, let your skin enjoy the sunshine, allow the waters to refresh your emotions, and remember that whoever visits this side of Algarve always goes back home with an even better smile!
