The island’s tiny beaches with their clear blue sea are very beautiful and ideal for swimming and diving.
The Forte de São João Baptista
Built on a rock adjacent to the Berlenga island and connected to it by a small bridge, there stands the Forte de São João Baptista, a Manueline military fortress built in 1502.
The Berlenga Nature Reserve is a unique place due to its transparent sea and underwater treasures.
