Berlengas Archipelago, Peniche

(4.4/5 based on 440+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Very friendly island, with a lot of seagulls... so pay attention to projectiles. The water is clear (I even had the chance to have a beautiful fish swimming close to my legs). We can walk and climb high enough to be near the seagulls in flight. We saw nests with egg (of seagulls) and kids (who can't fly yet). To do this once, after we saw...

  • Natural Heritage of mankind, the territory of the Berlengas is protected from mass tourism and is worth the trip is not difficult, in the old days this trip had a reputation, but now the new boats make it almost a stroll on the Boulevard ... this in the summer of course. Then it's all well and good, but I suggest the area of the Fort (the walk to there is not easy and requires some expertise ... attention to old people and small children) because this location and truly magical. Can be installed in this strong for 10 euros (we have to bring bed linen and don't have private bathrooms). But it's worth the paradise awaits (diving, paddle, etc.) there are váriasd things you can do in the Berlengas.

  • It's worth going to the site despite the time seem a little, is enough to know everything. But if the intention is to slow down, stay overnight is the best choice. Recommend! Tips: Bring water, some lunch, closed shoes (for walking on the rocks) and garbage bag.
