On this full-day Sailboat trip to the Desertas Islands you’ll sail along the south coast of Madeira Island. We will pull ashore in a sheltered cove to explore Deserta grande where you’ll be able to hike through unspoilt terrain and enjoy a guided tour which includes visiting the Nature Reserve and the watchmen’s dwelling.
Lunch aboard the yacht and swim in the crystal clear waters
Covering an area of 12,586 hectares the Natural Reserve of the Desertas Islands comprises all islands and islets (Ilhéu Chão, Deserta Grande, Bugio, and adjacent islets) and all the surrounding marine area. It has been designated a nature reserve for over 25 years, and is now internationally known for its monk seal conservation efforts. Today this protected area can be visited by sea.
Deserta Grande is the only island where visitors can disembark, and you’ll enjoy a guided walk to the conservation centre to learn about the monk seal protection efforts and also about endemic flora and fauna.
