Benagil Sea Cave

Hi there,

I keep coming across this amazing picture of the Benagil Sea Cave, and I would love to know how to get there....

We are staying in Lagos, but we also have a rental car to get around. Can we hire a fisherman in Lagos to take us or is it too far? Can we drive somewhere and then walk to the cave or take a boat to it from another town?

Any info would be helpful, thanks

We are going at the end of this month and we are staying in Algarve.

I was wondering if there is a beach inside the caves and if we are allowed to get off the boat for a bit.

Your feedback is very helpful!

Thank you !

Yes, there is a beach inside. You can go to the sand if the momentary conditions of the weather/sea and the type of boat do not prevent that possibility...It also depends on the person responsible for the tour and the boat. Currently, in large groups and many of the rides, that situation is not very usual (as far as I know):

I only went there once in a boat tour. I did not ask to go to the beach and I regret that...

Thank you. We took your advice and drove to Benagil. The prices have gone up a bit but you get to see 20 caves. The company has a website: tarugatoursbenagilcaves.pt The size of their boats is perfect. They take you through some incredible caves. You go fairly deep into some. It was awesome. The beach they leave from isn't the best. We ended up eating lunch after the boat ride at the top of the hill and headed to Praia de Marinha. It was awesome. You actually see it from the boat ride.

Hi there, the boat trip sounds wonderful, would love to fit that into our visit. We'll be staying in Lagos, is it easy to get a bus over to Benagil?

You can visit the seacaves of Benagil from boat trips from various marinas in the Algarve. I went to visit Benagil from Albufeira Marina and I suppose you can also take a boat in the marina of Lagos.

I would like to propose to my girlfriend in the cave - is it that sort of place?

Is sunrise or sunset better?

Is there many people around?

Did he charge you extra for this?
