“Desert Island, how to book your ticket!”
Reviewed 11 March 2012

I visited Desert Island on March 2012! It was a great experience! There are two spots to book your tickets, on the left and on the right of the marina. I would highly recommend Carlos, he is the responsible for the tickets and he stands exactly at the right side of the marina, near the hotel EVA (see google maps). He speaks French, Portuguese, English and other languages perfectly and he is very polite too. Moreover, he is eager to explain you everything you need to know!

In the island is only a restaurant that uses solar energy but you can have your own food if you don't want to spend more money. Moreover, there is a wooden path around the island that you can take and make the round of it in about 45 minutes but I would recommend to stay somewhere you like and enjoy the sea, the sun and play with the shells (there are a lot of them!) instead of getting tired because every spot is pretty much the same. Keep in mind that the lever of the sea becomes higher after the noon and in the evening it is safer to use only the wooden path in order to go to your boat.

All and all it is worth visiting!
