About Carvoeiro Caves
Boat trips by sea in easy boarding modern small boats, visiting breathtaking unique Benagil coastline caves, from Carvoeiro, through Benagil up to Praia da Marinha, considered most beautiful beaches in Europe. Only smaller boats can explore the caves at will - the larger boats are too big to enter the caves. Carvoeiro Caves has a fleet of 4 small, modern boats that zip along the coast and can easily be manoeuvered in the caves. All the boats have an easy boarding system making them accessible to the mobility impaired - no wading through waist-high water before clambering aboard. And all boats are equipped with all safety gear as required by law

Had a great experience with João and Fábio on our recent trip to Carvoeiro. We did the hour tour (the perfect amount of time) parting from the village center and cruised along the coast seeing beautiful cliffs and caves. João was a nice, friendly and knowledgeable guide while Fábio was a very skilled and fun boat captain. These caves are amazing- we even saw a fossilized starfish and I even found a “new” one they haven’t seen before! You can’t skip this!! It’s a must when visiting the South of Portugal! I was in the region a few years ago and I’m mind blown I missed all of this until this time time around. Highly recommended!!

My mate and I did the 90 minute boat trip which I think was 25 Euros each. It was a fantastic boat trip with the amazing Carlos & Bruno who seem to be able to speak every language in Europe fluently. I’m not sure if I was more impressed with the caves or their linguistic skills. Their boat handling was superb too. The caves were fantastic especially the speed they enter into the caves on the boat. It was just a brilliant trip. If you’re in Carvoeiro this is a must.

We would like to thank Antonio and Carlo(s) for an amazing experience! During "Covid Times" boat was desinfected, hands desinfected before boarding, need to wear masks, but all well managed! You can storage your shoes near to their kiosk a few steps from boarding place, on the boat you need to be barefood. We enjoyed the longer tour and it lasted really 90+ min, both gentlemen knew a lot about caves and beaches, added funny comments:) It was a highlight of our trip to Portugal, you should not miss this!
