We took a trip to the island on the catamaran, and went straight for a coffee and something to eat in the restaurant, the only building on the island. This was very pleasant and not at all expensive. It is also the only place on the island where you can go to the loo. Having initially arrived at about 12.30/12.45, the next boat back at about 14.15 was too soon so we had until the boat at 16.00 (there is one more boat at 17.00 but we wanted to come back in daylight) to do the board walk. We set off, and the one or two other people that were in the restaurant were the last people (apart from one fisherman) that we saw until we arrived back at the restaurant. The board walk is definitely worth doing. A leisurely stroll, with the beaches and water on one side, then across the island to a signpost signifying the most southern-most point of Portugal, and back along the beach. Word of warning, walking on the beach was really hard work as the sand was very damp and soft so you sink right in. This is a beautiful place, with a variety of birdlife and other insects (dragonflies, etc.) to see. There is, however, one thing that spoilt it for me and that is you cannot help but notice the rubbish that mindless idiots have left. It is such a shame that this spoils what would otherwise be a perfect experience.
