    Ilha Selvagem Pequena is uninhabited but during the months of July and August it is visited by fishermen from the Canary Islands. It has a low rocky coast faced in many parts by steep beaches of pebbles. The island is for the most part otherwise sandy, undulating and slightly covered with vegetation. The average elevation of the island is between 11m and 14m, but at the North end lies Pico do Veado, 49m (161ft) high, abrupt and conical.

    The flora of the Selvagens Islands at its most impressive on Selvagem Pequena and Ilheu de Fora; here grazing animals have never been introduced. Amongst the ninety species that make up the plant heritage of the Selvagens Islands, ten are endemic. Because of the favourable nesting conditions for seabirds, these islands are also known as bird sanctuaries.

    These islands are not easy to access... only if you have a boat... or you can make a deal with someone in Funchal (a fishing boat or the skipper of a sailing boat). Be careful with the sea state tho... the trip still is long both from Canary or Madeira Islands
