Murdeira bay / Lion Mountain

Murdeira Bay has great views of Lion Mountain.

Located on the west coast of the island, Murdeira Bay (Baia da Murdeira) is one of the two natural reserves of Sal and owes its name to the village of Murdeira which lies upon its shore.

With the surrounding land and Lion Mountain protecting it from heavy currents, Murdeira Bay is a natural port with very few waves and slightly warmer waters than other parts of the island.

These conditions make Murdeira Bay a perfect place for the sea animals to reproduce, like the loggerhead sea turtles (between May and October) and whales (between March and May).

In Murdeira Bay, you can experence great views of Lion Mountain (Monte Leão). Originally named “Rabo de Junco”, its name eventually changed to “Monte Leão” because its shape resembles the head of a lion.
