Nature Reserve of Ilhéu de Maria Vaz


Is also known as Ilhéu da Gadelha and is just a little longer than 100 m from the northeast shore of the island, has a roundish shape and is particularly covered by flora and is much visited by seabirds, especially the yellow legged gull (Laurus michahellis atlantis). This islet has a very strong visual presence, complementing and enriching the view from the Ponta do Albarnaz at North.
