PEOPLE m People is the third and possible most important ingredient of a great retreat. We believe that together, we are greater than our parts - which is why this section is about you, your group and us.


“ We seen and therefore believe in the magic of the right combination of people, places and experiences. We’re dedicated  to help others experience unforgettable moments that allow them to live fully and freely in every moment of life. Life is short. Let’s live it in all its beauty.”


Long story short, at Wide Ocean Retreat we want to help more people realise their retreat dreams. 



Having run a multitude of retreats in Portugal and the Azores, we have grown to become experts in this area and know what makes or breaks a retreat. As your local partners, we are here to support you before, during and after your journey.
