Berlengas Archipelago, Peniche

4.4
#3 of 22 in Things to do in Peniche
Explore the natural beauty and historical points of interest at Berlengas Archipelago, a gorgeous archipelago formed by three islands. Marine life and barrier reefs fill the clear, turquoise water, and the beaches provide a place to relax. During your trip, look for the Duque de Braganca lighthouse, powered by solar energy, as well as the impressive S. Joao Batista fortress, which stands alone out on the water. You can spend the night in the citadel, but be sure to bring your own sleeping bag and flashlight, as the rooms do not have modern conveniences. Or, pitch a tent in the camping site. On-site amenities include two restaurants and a small shop. By using our Peniche family vacation planner, you can arrange your visit to Berlengas Archipelago and other attractions in Peniche.

    We have arrived in PENICHE on a Saturday afternoon! at the port, we went with Feeling Berlenga and had packages with several options, ida - return, round-trip with guided visit to the caves in a glass-bottomed boat (what you have chosen), plus a pack with snorkeling and other diving. For all tastes! BOOKING IN ADVANCE IS THE KEY! otherwise there are no squares! You can eat on the island, good food but too do you take to bring it to you. Were thus left without tip it is best "sandwich tourism"! You can eat where you gives the win (check that there are no gulls near)! The pack had a guided tour that was sincerely wonderful organized with a lot of explanations. In the port, they had a small beach and we took a bath to take advantage of the waters free of pollution and filled with fish! We love to us and back we face with dolphins! It's worth visiting the island! It deserves to sleep a night in the fortress if you are nature lover! Therefore my advice... ENJOY!

    In August you can only spend 4 hours on the island with the boat ride. Despite staying within 1 hour of Peniche the price is a bit expensive compared to other parts of the country in which one can visit by boat.

    Peniche output by 11 A.M. and return at 16 hours, just enough time on the island, she is small and open and warm sunny days it can't be easy to be there longer. It is worth visiting the island and do the tour at caves, although this is small and I thought it was expensive for what you saw and the duration (+/-15 min). The island is still in a wild state and so will continue.
