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.

Your guide was very friendly and had a great sense of humor. He spoke fluent English which helped us, since we don't speak Portuguese or Spanish. Overall a very pleasant experience. We visited in Aug, 2019. Must visit place.

We were a Canadian couple visiting the southern coast of Portugal. We took the tour Feb. 13/2020. It was well run, safe & fun. The tour guide was very knowledgeable & made sure to give plenty of opportunities for photo taking. Equipment was very good & well maintained.
