Overview
With the sun streaming through its sandstone ceiling onto the beach below, Benagil Caves (Algar de Benagil) is one of the Algarve’s most iconic sights—but you can only access the cave from the water. This short tour, with a range of departures throughout the day, uses a small boat so that (conditions permitting) you can enter the cave and take photos.
Highlights
  • Experience the sculptural sandstone Benagil Caves (Algar de Benagil)
  • Small boat allows cave access to see the natural arches at their best
  • Choose between different departure times to suit your schedule
  • Veteran driver/guide brings you in as close as possible

Wonderful experience with great narration of coastline features. Navigation was smooth, without fault and we all felt safe in the new, smart powerful rib. Thank you to Mouro, our skipper and Andre our guide.

The boats go in and out of the caves which was absolutely stunning. This was a good way to see the caves from below the cliffs... I did the tour in the morning so that I could do a solo hike from above the cliffs in the afternoon to see the view from the top (I took a taxi from
