About Us

 

Feeling Berlenga® brought together two of the oldest companies operating in the Peniche costal area, Portugal. Founded by two brothers – local fishermen that instilled their knowledge and navigation expertise – the company now relies on the support of a young team that inherited that family tradition and added their energy and enthusiasm.

Nowadays Feeling Berlenga® offers you a unique experience that combines a boat ride with the opportunity to discover Berlenga Islands’ natural paradise.

 

Berlenga Island

Come and discover the island of dreams

 

The Berlengas archipelago is a group of small islands located 5.7 miles off the cost of Peniche and comprises Berlenga, Estelas and Farilhões islands. Berlenga is the only inhabited island. In 2011 UNESCO classified Berlengas as “World Biosphere Reserve”, which is indicative of the rich fauna and flora that can be found on the islands.

Visitors can walk the trails; take a boat tour of the caves; visit Fort St. John, the Baptist, the Duke of Bragança Lighthouse or the Visitor Centre. The island also features a campsite, beach area, a small supermarket and a restaurant.

In the summertime, the warmer weather and bigger influx of visitors results in great interaction moments, which are underscored by the beautiful scenery and clear water, resulting in an unforgettable experience.
