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.

  • I've been to Berlengas several times and it's always charming. Great place to practice diving, for some boat trips through the caves or for some walks on the island. I strongly recommend a visit to Berlengas.

  • Wonderful quiet a bit costly to climb or descend to some but it's worth the sacrifice. Waters of an incomparable color. Too bad the beach be little

  • The Berlengas is a Portuguese archipelago, composed of granitic islands, situated in Peniche. Peniche is about 1:00 drive from Lisbon. Therefore, a visit to the island is an excellent option to pass a different weekend. Crossing the island is made by boat, take about 30 minutes. The first thing that struck me was the color of the water, the island is highly preserved, has an admirable natural beauty. We boat in fishing village, there is the only restaurant on the island. We had lunch in the restaurant of the village and we follow the trail of Berlenga Island, toward the Fort of São João Baptista, one of the great attractions of the island, the Fort has accommodation where you can book in for the night.
