Kayaking through the Benagil Caves

The Benagil Caves, sculpted by the sea over thousands of years, are one of the Algarve’s best-preserved treasures.

Located on a small beach between Albufeira and Lagos, the Benagil caves attract visitors from all corners of the world with their beauty and authenticity. It’s not every day you see something like this 😉

What makes the Benagil caves so special?

The caves are unique in that they feature a variety of impressive rock formations, from stalactites and stalagmites to arches sculpted by water.

The main entrance to the cave is a huge hole in the ceiling, allowing natural light to illuminate the water and rocks, creating a welcoming atmosphere.

Additionally, inside the cave, there’s a small beach, perfect for relaxing and resting for a while.

Finally, the caves are accessible by boat, kayak, and stand-up paddle. Three excellent options very inviting and suitable for all kinds of people!
