  • A fun short ride on a boat (departs hourly from the wharf of Vila Franca do Campo) takes you to this lovely islet. Nearly circular lagoon is quite picturesque. Space is limited on the rocky outcrops.....  more

  • Fantastic experience. Warm and clear waters, very good to do snorkeling. The kids loved it but just enough to stay 2 or 3 hours.

  • Easy to buy tickets at the dock (€8 pp) and the boat leaves every hour. The island is small but nice. Good for a quick swim and then back to the boat. One hour is enough.
  • We went last week around noon and had no trouble to score some tickets. The boat is small so I guess if it’s a busy day it can get crowded quickly or they might run out of tickets as it’s just one boat every hour either way. Apparently you can buy the tickets online on their website so maybe that might help. On the island snorkeling is nice so make sure to bring food, drinks, snorkel gear and some sunblock.
