Tour de la isla

La isla de Boavista no es muy grande, es casi redonda, de unos 30 km de diámetro. Un paseo en coche, con camionetas 4×4 de 5 u 8 plazas, ofrece la posibilidad de visitarlo todo en un día. Las carreteras de la isla están en parte pavimentadas y en parte sin pavimentar, con distintos grados de dificultad. Si es tu primera vez en la isla, te sugerimos que elijas una de las soluciones propuestas aquí, de lo contrario puedes optar por un alquiler.

Las etapas de cada recorrido permiten una amplia elección de cómo visitar Boavista: por lo general, los recorridos de medio día se concentran en 2-3 lugares característicos, mientras que los recorridos más largos requieren todo el día para visitar más lugares. Cada excursión tiene características diferentes, pero en el camino siempre puedes interactuar con el guía quien te aconsejará sobre cómo continuar el viaje.

Los guías hablan varios idiomas, te contarán historias sobre los lugares que visitarás. Durante casi todos los recorridos, activos todo el año, puedes parar para nadar y tomar fotografías (o deslizarte por las dunas).

Consejos

– Si el tour no incluye un descanso para almorzar, es recomendable traer agua y un refrigerio, aunque en algunos lugares es posible comprar algo.
– El sol siempre es muy fuerte, aunque no haga demasiado calor. Traiga bloqueador solar, zapatos cómodos (o chanclas) y anteojos de sol.
– Si desea nadar, informe al guía con anticipación, para que pueda calcular el tiempo adecuado para cada parada.
– Las vueltas normalmente empiezan y acaban en el mismo punto, pero si tienes otras necesidades puedes avisar con antelación y no habrá problemas.

Leaving from Rabil you cross the small palm-lined oasis and immediately after you arrive at the Viana Desert. The desert has been formed over the years, from the Alisei winds coming from North Africa, loaded with sand from the Sahara. Viana changes continuously over time, stretches, widens, and every time the landscape offers different beauties.

It’s beautiful walking barefoot on the sand and rolling off the dunes, in front of the curious gaze of the goats that live there. Leaving the desert, it proceeds towards Cabo Santa Maria, in order to admire an old wreck and the sea eagles.

Proceeding towards Sal Rei, a stop at the Church of Fatima, recently renovated, which offers a breathtaking view of the sandy coves in the middle of the volcanic rocks. To end the trip, a walk in Sal Rei, the main town of Boavista.

HALF DAY MORRO NEGRO BY 4x4

On the road to the history and tradition of Boavista, the first stop is the terracotta factory of Rabil, the ancient Olarìa, where skilled artisans work the red earth by hand and create very nice statues. Leaving Rabil we turn towards the Viana desert, formed with the sands that the winds bring from Africa: you can slide down from the dunes and walk to «hear» the magical silence of this place. The tour continue on a road still made of cobblestones, towards the villages of the North: João Galego, Fundo das Figueiras and Cabeça dos Tarafes, very colorful, full of flowers and hospitable people.

From Cabeça the path take a black run, crossing a surreal landscape of volcanic stones, which leads to one of the highest points of Boavista: the Morro Negro lighthouse. Then go for a 10 minutes walk, where the view on the Atlantic Ocean is breathtaking. On the way back the path is the same, but by changing the direction and view, the emotions are also renewed.
