Ilha da Berlenga Travel Guide: 40 reviews and 78 photos
If you have a speedboat...
It is not far from Lisboa (1h, 1,5h by road)
It is beautiful when sunny
Food in the only restaurant existing in the island is good (had European seabass rice)
Ideal for a day trip IF YOU HAVE YOUR OWN SPPED BOAT (speedboats don't go up and down vertically...)
-MOST IMPORTANT CON- THE FERRYBOAT TO THE ISLAND IS NASTY (I threw up 3 times and everyone inside the boat was doing the same); the guys travelling outside got wet and froze; it was very windy today; THE TRIP TAKES 45 min
BEACHES WITH SAND IS ONE AND VERY SMALL
ROCKS ALL OVER, NO ARCHAEOLOGICAL ANYTHING TO SEE
FAUNA: SEAGULLS AND HUMANS
only accessible 2 months a year, I was there in the best time, imagine the rest of the year...
very few botas available during the day (I arrived the island at 10.15 and could only leave at 16.30)
I am SO aware of sun protection and use regularly SPF 50 in my face...none today...a bit sunburned...
The pics show a very nice place (in colors and natural landscape) but remember these pros and cons...
- Pros:Ideal for scubadiving.
- Cons:Difficult to reach without vomiting...
- In a nutshell:Went there once, only return on a private boat...
