BERLENGA ISLAND

 

“Elected long time ago as the main location for diving with a hard hat in the Portuguese coast, the Berlenga waters hide everything the human imagination can create.”

Reiner, F. and Santos, R., 2002

The Berlenga Island is about 7 miles from the Peniche Port ; it is 1500 meters long and 800 meters wide, with a perimeter of 4000 meters and reaches 88 meters at its highest point and –30 meters at its lowest.

It is a region of great interest for botanical specialists with several endemic species and species of limited distribution.
