Clear waters and a fisherman's village with an old fortress

Great place to go for a day. Snorkeling and hiking are the things to do here. Take extra food and water and dont forget your camera!

My friends and I motorsailed to Berlengas on what started out as a foggy and wind-less morning. But by 1030 a.m., the sun burned the fog and it turned out to be sunny and warm day. Berlengas is just fascinating. I love the sky-blue clouds mirrored by the sky blue and clean waters and the rugged cliffs and crags of... More

We stayed @ Berlengas for one day. In the beginning, it was very foggy and cloudy and you couldn't see much. But after a while when the sun came out, it was magnificent!!! Beautiful island with breathtaking view and crystalclear beach. We hiked for 2-3 hours and relaxed at the beach for another 2 hours. When the weather is nice,... More

The floor for camping is too hard for sleep, but the views and the fort worth it. Prepare yourself to climb a lot of stairs to the fort too :)

If one's afraid of the sea, then one's should skip this visit. It can sound dangerous (Atlantic ocean) with big waves. It is a protected area and it should charge more for the entrance, foreigners in particular. Well worth every visit; I'm on my 6th.

We decided to leave our children behind after reading many reviews. SO glad we did! The small boats, which get there faster is NOT suitable for small kids. I would definitely suggest going on a calm sea day as the waves are spectacular and high! Sitting in the very back will get you drenched BUT so worth every single dollar... More

We made exciting trip by boat on this amazing island. For me one of the miracles of Portugal, where I spent whole day.

I went on a blue sky low wind day, but let me tell you the ride over was so scary with a small boat, I decided to put on my life jacket. The captain said it was normal wave. There were 12 of us, 3 were vomiting. A small kid was so scared and cried the whole time. When I... More

Visited with my brother and uncle, just for the day. Amazing place, with lots to explore and beautiful nature to watch. At the Fort, facilities are poor.. The coffee machine wasn't working, there is only 1 toilet available, conditions aren't excellent. But if you can focus on the nature and appreciate the beauty around you, all that is of no... More
