Paulo,
I'm out of this photo contest, because I know this place, it wouldn't be fun. But I believe he gave you a very good hint. he told you that he left a specific port, and it took him one night to get there...

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

And I thought this one was going to be easy!...

Here's another hint. It is an important calving ground for humpback whales and is known for scuba diving and whale watching.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

And we have a winner! Yes, it's the Abrolhos archipelago in southern Bahia. The specific island is Sta. Barbara, one of the 5 that make up the group. This place is visited by quite a few foreign cruising boats every year and I thought it wasn't going to be so hard to identify. Over to you Paulo (and back to Europe!).

That is unfair. One question at the time please

If it is was on the Iberia Peninsula it would not be an Island.

Yes it is an Island and belongs to one of the Iberian Countries.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Awesome picture, I want to go there... if only I knew where it was. It looks like the Atlantic side; is it south of Lisbon?

Not quite but close I mean it is Berlengas not Berlingas

It is just at 15NM of my house (from the saloon I can see them) and just 10Nm from the closest port, Peniche. When I had the traditional wooden boat that was a favorite place and I have passed there many weeks on anchor.

Go on Faster
