Diving Berlenga Grande Island

Explore diving Berlenga Grande Island

Berlengas are in fact an archipelago made up of three sets of Islands, Berlenga, Estelas and Farilhões and each one of them offer a different dive experience, ranging from calm bays to wrecks to caverns and of course dives with big schools of fish in the more challenging dives.

The best dives are almost always exposed to the weather with mild to strong currents so for the most sensitive to seasickness it is recommended to take some seasickness medication.
