Climate Action and Social Impact

Impact Beach House is a Hostel by the beach in Estoril, dedicated to Climate Action with a special focus on Ocean Conservation and Circular Economy.
All the decoration of IBH its second hand or upcycled. Each object has its own story and is another step forward in our sustainability journey.
At our backyard stays an Eco dive school, our partner "in crime" for keeping the Ocean Clean at Cascais bay and all our guests and volunteers are welcomed to learn how to dive and be a Marine Conservation Hero.
We want to show how Tourism can have a Positive Impact on communities and on the planet and for that reason we are also open to the community. Come and enjoy with us a Social Impact Ice Cream or taste to a Beer that fights to protect marine life.
Buy amazing products on our Eco Social Shop or Swap your Clothes on our "Vintage" Swap Spot!

"Working in the Youth Support Program was an eye opening experience that I’ll never forget. I had so much fun doing activities with the kids and talking to the other volunteers! It made me so happy to see how kind and helpful everybody was at the association. Because of this I want to come back to Barcelona as soon as possible :)".

Impact Trip has guided me locally in both Croatia (October) and most recently Portugal. They are organized, professional and incredibly available at all times for any ad hoc needs. My next application will be influenced by the opportunity to once again have their local support. Special shout out to Klara!!

"I started off my experience feeling anxious and quite scared because I had no idea what to expect. However within a couple of days, I felt completely comfortable in my environment, loving my volunteering placement, and having so much fun with my new friends. The sustainable farming placement is so worth the super long journey, even though I also did it by myself. The team is warm and welcoming, the work incredibly rewarding, and the overall experience was just beautiful!"
