We were a little skeptical if this place would be as beautiful as described by our boat captain! But what a surprise! This cave is magical! Very worthy to go!

Saco da Velha cave is situated at the Saco da Velha beach, which is only reachable by sea and it takes 1,5 hours from the mainland Historic center docks. That's why it is also so worth investing to be there, and experiment what it is like to be alone at a perfect beach like you see in those movies...

Just be careful, the rocks around it can be very slippery.
