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.

The crew was very funny and knowledgeable. They slowed down in every sightseeing point to take good photos. However, I was disappointed in Benagil Cave because they stopped for a few minutes but they didn’t stop in the sand and let us take off the boat. I was expecting to see

The boat was small to go inside the caves. The captain and the guide were really friendly and told us about the histories of cave. They always stopped for taking pictures. Highly recommend it

Small size of boat (under 20) allows for access to interior of caves that would not be possible with larger boats. We made our own way to the port; easy to find and lots of free parking. Guides were very knowledgeable and made best efforts to ensure we had a great experience.
