Unique Rock Formation In The World

The Benagil Sea Cave, as it’s most commonly known, is just east of the small town of Benagil on the Algarve. With its own ‘indoor’ beach, two sea-facing holes and a further circular skylight eroded through its ceiling, it’s a favourite with photographers and tours.

Reachable Only By Water

Despite being near the Benagil beach, the cave is only accessible by water. You can go by boat, kayak, Stand Up Paddle or even swim if you are fit and know the tides and currents. Taking a tour is the best option since you will know other places as well.

Surrounded By Incredible Nature

Benagil can be the most famous point, but the surroundings are as impressive has the cave itself. With sacred beaches, ocean caves and amazing cliffs, this region is really the highlight of the Algarve.
