  • A unique place. Magic stones, ocean views and stunning sunsets. We will definitely go back, but in the summer to enjoy the gorgeous beaches, dunes and relaksina.

  • Is view sea as far as the eye can see. Nice view to the Islanders right there in front. Good place to stop and reflect life.

  • Lighthouse on the promontory of Peniche, in suburbs of the town. Nice but not very organized or valued. Panoramic terrace, with beautiful broad beautiful vision of the ocean and the cliffs below. The Lighthouse is not open to visitors (military zone) and there are no tourist information points.

  • Muito provavelmente o sitio mais bonito que já visitei em Portugal!
  • Vista impressionante sobre Peniche e sobre as Berlengas. Excelente para tirar umas boas fotografias e desfrutar do que de melhor a natureza nos oferece.
  • Uma vista única!
  • Boa vista, vale a pena ver o pôr do sol aqui. Recomendo!
  • Daqui avistasse as Berlengas muito bem, avistasse um pôr do sol magnífico, um local bom para passar um pouco do fim da tarde e contemplar as imagens que este local nos proporciona!
