Secrets of Sal Island 4x4 Tour

The desolate beauty of inland Sal is in stark contrast to the white sands of its coast. After a stop at Murdeira Bay, you'll trundle off-road to Palmeira on the west coast.

Next, witness the ocean-like sands of Terra Boa before enjoying an elevated view of Espargos, the capital. Wind down with a natural spa treatment – by floating in the salty waters of Pedra de Lume.

Sal Lemon Shark Experience

Living in the coastal subtropical waters around Sal, lemon sharks are one of the easiest sharks to spot in their natural habitat. After pick-up from your hotel, you'll drive to Shark Bay where your experience will begin. Wade out into the water with a marine biologist and you'll be taught all about this incredible species. Spot their yellow-tinted skin – ideal for camouflage in the sandy shores – and watch them as they go about their business, twisting and turning, and looking for fish just a few feet away. You'll see their fins cutting through the surface of the water and get to know these sharks closer than you could imagine.
