The greatest part of the trip is the sailing between the coast and the island. The island itself is quite barren, not much to see there. The caves are nice, although honestly you do not see much of them. And the glass floor of the...More

It makes for a beautiful summer day trip. Because of previous irregularities, visits to the small islands are limited, so you have to book your trip in a defined time slot, that usually is no longer than 5h (including the transfer itself), meaning that there...More

Buying a boat trip ticket to Berlengas Archipelago‏‏ (10 Replies)
Hello , We are going to stay in Praia de São Martinho do Porto at the beginning of september and we want to do a day trip to Berlengas Archipelago‏‏ . If we want to buy a boat trip ticket we need to be in Peniche at least an hour before the boat leaves and we have to drive all the way to Peniche , that means we need to leave very early to do that and its a bit of a problem... Is there a way to buy the ticket online from a reliable source? Do you think its better for us to spend 1 night...More

Is there a way to buy the ticket online from a reliable source? As far as I know no there are no tickets online. And considering that the sea conditions, fog and tide has a lot of influence on those boat journeys I wouldn't risk it. For the same reason (sea/fog) I think that making the sacrifice of an early rise is better than spending money on an overnight and then not being possible to do the journey...

then hike "down" the Parque Natural de Sintra-Cascais and be at sunset at Cabo da Roca - What?? You have no idea how far this is. So forget the hike, and as already said the bus schedule is not friendly for the sunset hours.
