Garajau Partial Nature Reserve
After watching the beautiful sights from above the sea, the tuk-tuk tour will continue in the direction of the sea level where the Garajau´s natural reservation is at.

The reserve was established, back in 1986 and is positioned in the south coast of the island. Epinephelus Guaza (Mero), is one of the largest fish that can be found at the park but, is also important to mention that this natural reserve is a protected area making it forbidden to catch fish there.

Not only fishing is forbidden here, but also navigating in these waters, which are highly controlled by the navy patrol.

Although, these waters can be explored if in one is in the mood for some skin-diving.

The Garajau natural reserve is not only known for its crystalline waters, but also for its biological richness, undeniably a space worth all its protection.
