“"blue eye"”

Buracona - Olho Azul
Ranked #4 of 55 things to do in Ilha do Sal
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 28 June 2014

This was part of our island tour. Health and safety non existent, if you perch on the edge of a rock face and lean over in to a long drop and deep water you get to see the blue eye, impressive!

Stopped of her on a tour of the island The Eye is a stunning optical illusion that is worth seeing. the surrounding area is very rocky the is a cove alongside where you can swim but the swell can be a little dangerous on windier days.

One of the highlights of our holiday. Went on a beautiful sunny day and 'the eye' looked fantastic. Also had a swim in the natural swimming pool next to it.

Probably not a great trip for younger kids or those with mobility issues as it does require crossing some steep rocks and there's no barriers or handrails.
