Full description
Have a no-stress day on Tarrafal Beach, one of the most beautiful areas on the island of Santiago. Your day starts with pickup from Praia, Assomada, or Cidade Velha before heading to the Green Bay of Tarrafal.   Your first experience of the day will be a boat trip to the lighthouse. On this fun adventure of about 40 minutes, visit Mount Graciosa and the Ponta Preta lighthouse, where you can take in the magnificent landscapes of the Bay and the sight of local fishermen bringing fresh fish to the island.   After lunch, it’s time to relax on Tarrafal Beach, a small white-sand beach with crystal-clear waters, surrounded by hills and coconut palm trees. In the late afternoon, return to the interior of the island, with the incredible sunset reflecting between the valleys and mountains.

Es kam anders als gedacht, wir sind nicht mit dem Boot nach Tarrafal sondern mit dem Auto. Wir waren begeistert, die Staff war brillant, der Fahrer hat einen herausragend guten Job gemacht. Wir haben immer wieder an tollen Stellen Stops gemacht und die Zeit/Tour würde individuell unseren Wünschen angepasst. 5Sterne für Maria und Salou! Wir würden es immer wieder machen!
