These sun drenched ocean baths are the backdrop for Spell Resort 17/18, Cloud Dancer. Our photographer Byrdie Mack always dreams up the most amazing schemes for our shoots, so when she told us about Madeira – a Portuguese archipelago of islands off the southwest coast of Portugal, we booked it on a whim.
We found the baths after driving 45 minutes in the wrong direction – a beautiful mistake that meant we got to witness some amazing waterfalls and met the most divine locals as they pointed us in the right direction. The ocean baths are even more incredible in real life, carved out of lava formed rocks nestled near a charming town. The folk of Madeira, with their gorgeous olive skin kissed by the sun for generations, are incredibly hospitable and man do they do a good fish + banana, so delish!
Cloud Dancer to me is what it would look like if you painted a picture of a peacock with vanilla ice-cream while being underwater in the lost city of Atlantis… Enjoy lovers! We hope that this dreamy collection of vaycay ready pieces inspires your next holiday, however near or far!
