“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. A nesting spot for some species of ocean birds (such as the guillemot - Airo uria aalge- , a symbol of the reserve), and a passing point for several migratory species. A Maritime Reserve of great wild life richness, particularly ichthyology.
