The full moon period and the new moon period are two magic weeks in Taipu de Fora.


If you have the chance to book your stay in one of these weeks, you will probably enjoy your beach time more.


  • The tide gets very low for hours

  • This makes the natural pools work for a longer period during both day and night.

  • The low tide gives you more time to enjoy activities on the beach, such as running, biking, snorkling – even at night.

  • During full moon, the moon rises from the ocean every night. A spectacular sight!

  • On the full moon night, you can see the moonrise and the sunset simultaniously.

  • During new moon the sky is so dark that it seems like every single star in the universe appears.
