Spend the day at Tarrafal's Green Bay: Morning boat trip to the lighthouse, lunch, relax on the beach, swim, and explore the rich marine life.


  • Have a relaxing day at Tarrafal Bay with transportation from the South
  • Enjoy a fantastic 40-minute boat trip to the lighthouse
  • Visit the most beautiful beach of the island, Tarrafal Beach
  • Take photos of the Fogo Volcano from Serra Malagueta on the way


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.
