With about 2000 km of coastline, why not consider Portugal as a site for floating hotels?

The advantages are great – a lower carbon footprint on the earth – and the coastal hotels could consider such a project as an expansion of their facilities on land or even in high season as overspill. Perhaps also as a refuge for selected customers who do not have time to go on a cruise…

Unexplored areas like some of those in the Madeira archipelago could become viable touristic destination only visible from the hotel. From its anchor, it could become a perfect observatory for the Biogenetic Reserve as classified by the Council of Europe.
