Forte de S. João Baptista Aug 28, 2010
There are only three possibilities to spend the night in Berlenga: Forte de S. João Baptista, Campsite and Mar e Sol Restaurant.
The Fort has 20 rooms where you can stay for 10€ per night. It works as shelter home, so it's better to take a sleeping bag with you. The bathroom is shared. The light is cut at 1 a.m and the tap freshwater community is cut 10 a.m., so it's better to take lanterns and provisions with you. The island only has one minimarkt. The reservation has to be made at Associação Amigos da Berlenga. To get there, you can go by boat from the fishing village for 3€ or by foot through all the island (believe me, if you are a backpacker this is a hard possibility :D I made it by foot and it was hard but at the same time I enjoyed the view)
Even with precarious conditions it worth at least one night there. The view at night it's beautifull specially in the fullmoon and in the sunrise too. By the way be prepared to ear seagulls all the time. Just enjoy the nature and what it has to offer you, as simple as you can! :)
