The Benagil Sea Cave is part of a system of caves that lines Portugal’s southern coast in the Algarve region. This most iconic cave is located just around the corner from a beach in the tiny town of Benagil.
The Algarve coast is Portugal’s most popular holiday destination, drawing many Europeans looking to embrace the country’s summer sun. The coastline runs for about 150 kilometres and is dotted with alternating beaches, cliffs and caves, the latter of which bear interesting formations like skylights and often host picturesque variations of light throughout the day.
To visit the caves on the Algarve coast, join our tour including Albufeira, Carvoeiro, Lagos, Portimao and Faro. In fact, sea caves tours by kayak or speedboat are available and can coupled with stops at secluded beaches and dolphin spotting.
When you’re not at the beach, world-class golf courses, important religious sites, Roman ruins and nature reserves are all easily accessible by car and even busy Albufeira retains its traditional charm. Aside from multitudes of cookie-cutter resorts, the region boasts plenty of quaint (but still luxurious) bed and breakfasts, guest houses and boutique hotels.
