By combining sport with fun, kayak tours have become increasingly popular. All it takes is a boat, a paddle, good company and sun and sea. Follow our top 5 kayaking spots in the hottest region of Europe, the fantastic Algarve, situated in the south region of Portugal, and put them to the test!
The kayaking tours that leave the trendy city of Albufeira are on a boat that transports the kayaks to the sea. From there the kayaks accompany and draw the Algarve coast. It is very fun and safe, especially for those who have not yet experience with the sport. You’ll remember the holidays for certain.
4- Armação de Pêra
In Armação de Pêra we did a kayak tour to some beautiful caves, more suitable for those who have or want to have more physical preparation , since it is a little bit farther than the other cities. The best was to visit deserted beaches inaccessible by other routes, romantic breathtaking scenarios.
From Carvoeiro beach we went by kayak to the famous Benagil grotto , on a guided tour with a very fun group. Usually the tours leave with the guide and at least 4 people, great activity to enjoy with friends. It’s a fantastic trip that goes by fast as we explore the secrets of Portugal‘s cliffs.
From the village of Ferragudo we leave by kayak and explore several caves on the route between Ferragudo and Benagil. In addition, it is also possible to take a kayak trip without having to reach the Benagil grotto but staying on a beach inaccessible by land where we made a fantastic picnic in absolute peace. This tour only is worth the trip to the Algarve.
Kayaking in the Lagos region is amazing and is where you find your way to get to know the most beautiful part of the coast, the cliffs of Ponta da Piedade. We sail among the most crystalline waters and we enter by boat in the most hidden caves that exist in the cliffs, also taking advantage of the beaches whose access is only possible by the sea. The local guides share these secrets of the Algarve with the sympathy of the Portuguese people.
For those who do not feel very comfortable with the kayaking activity it is also possible to stay on the boat as an observer, take a dip in the warmest sea in Europe and take a sunbath. It is safe and ideal for families with children.
Perhaps one of the most complete types of tours, the kayaking associated with snorkeling in this region is incredible. In addition to the fun that the exploration of the coast by kayak allows, you also have the opportunity to enjoy life under the sea.
If you are very tired, your group can also opt for a kayak where the return to the coast is made towing a motor boat.
Whether it’s for a family vacation, laughing with friends or having a romantic date, kayaking is a right choice. And yet all these activities of exploring caves and beaches is made with the support of experienced guides who have all the patience to teach beginners how to navigate with the strongest surfers.
