The Troia peninsula is, in fact, a gigantic sand dune that has been forming over thousands of years, with the Atlantic Ocean to the west and the Sado estuary to the east. This unique location gives it an enormous wealth from the environmental point of view. In this privileged setting, with beach, dune, marsh, estuary and pine forest environments, the TROIA RESORT emerged as a project where the safeguarding and valuation of the environmental heritage were considered as differentiating factors.
