Be picked up from your accommodation and transferred to the shark bay, a must-see when visiting Sal. Upon arrival, put on your water shoes, enter the ocean and head out to this incredible shark watching experience. See and get close to the Lemon Sharks in their natural environment. This species poses no threat to humans. Next, enjoy an experience of a lifetime at Pedra de Lume, in a salt pan located below sea level.
