One cannot fail to enjoy the natural benefits of a swim in the many natural pools of the island. Formed by volcanic lava that has spread to the sea, these pools are a unique place where you can enjoy the minerals.
The sea trips in the Atlantic on an elegant sailboat are always unique experiences. Enjoying a cocktail or lounging in the sun on the deck are part of the program. And to this exquisite moment we add a fascinating experience: the contemplation of whales and dolphins. They are very sociable and sometimes accompany the sailboats during the whole crossing.
