In Boavista you can take a boat ride to relax in the peaceful Sal-Rei bay. The boat ride along the coast (by sailboat or motorboat) takes about 3 hours and, for some boats, it is possible to go down to the Djeu islet beach. The sea is always calm inside the bay and there is always a stop to bathe in the crystal clear waters of Boavista.

Depending on the type of trip, it starts from the small city pier or from the industrial port, and with a small dinghy you get on board the boats. It heads for the dunes of Morro de Areia, then pauses for a while to relax in the sun. If the sea allows it, there is also the circumnavigation of the islet, where birds of various types are often seen and on board the crew celebrate with music and local dances. Relaxing trips are also available, for adults only, without entertainment, for sunbathing and relaxing with a cocktail and a good buffet. On the boats there is a photo service, which can be purchased directly on board.
