Overview

On this full-day catamaran trip to the Desertas Islands you’ll sail along the south coast of Madeira Island. On arrival, you’ll disembark in clear waters onto a beach of volcanic origin, where you’ll have a chance to enjoy a swim.

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.

Wundervoller Tag auf See

Wundervoller Tag auf See, leider nicht genug Wind zum Segeln, aber wir haben jede Minute genossen. Professionelle und liebenswürdige Crew. Leckeres Lunchbuffet. Kleine, feine Guide-Tour auf Ilas Deserthas. Alles

stunning experience

We have gone to the Ilhas Desertas, the trip is approximately 2 hours by boat. There we toured the part of the visited island and practiced water sports, specifically snorkeling, but there were canoes for a walk and the monitor accompanied you with the paddle surf. Later we ate on the boat, they offered both fish and meat, and companions for all tastes; and back to Funchal. A fantastic day.
