  • We were on the beach and as a good tourist, via an agency to the beach, we took a boat. Certainly, this is faster and we saw other cavities than the main but hey, if we had known that the famous beach in the cave was very close to the beach of arrival, we would have put our canoe in the water...! In any case this beach "secret" is a must see! (The morning or early afternoon otherwise the Sun gives more in the cave and that's too bad...)

  • It is important to know that access to the majestic cave Grutas de Benagil is possible only from the ocean. Beautiful and strangely not as much crowded place with a shower on the beach:)

  • Parking was a bit of effort and we ended up having to park about a 5 minute walk away from the beach up the hill simply because I didn't want to fight for a space any closer although there were more s...  read more »
  • I grew up here... It is one of the best hidden places around here... Away from the shopping and tourism area... Here you can really relax... The surroundings and the beach are amazing... The locals are friendly... The restaurant Casa Lamy is family owned and has an amazing view... If you like fish and seafood, this is the place to eat some fresh fish and paella... Make reservations for the best table with the best view of the beach...
  • The beach is nice, but the highlight is the boat tours and the fabulous caves, especially the famous Benagil Sea Cave located just east of the beach. You can't walk to the cave. The boat tours should get you into the cave, or strong swimming, or kayak. There is an average cafe here. Parking is at a premium on the side of the road.
  • Absolutely beautiful beach. You can get there by car or public transport but a taxi should not cost you more than 10 euros from Lagoa busstation.
  • Small beach but peaceful. Launch location of the Benagil sea caves boat right. Great fun for all and a brilliant way to see them.
  • Great beach. Show up early to catch milder sun and a good spot.
