  • A little out of the way, but a great beach with nice waves/surf. When there you can get on top of the cliffs for more great views. It's also thr departure point of a local tour boat company that explo...  more »
  • Beauty hidden beaches and cliffs is difficult to describe! This is a must see while in the Algarve. Trip by boat after the caves is fascinating. You need to choose small boats, which the Guide into the center of the blade. We sailed a boat directly from the beach Benagil. In March, people are few and the Sun much warm. The Atlantic also dived. And these shells!

  • We loved the entire boat tour! This was our first time in the Algarve, and we couldn't get enough of the colors of the water and rocks. We had a warm sunny day, even in January. This was a wonderful w...  more »

  • Lovely small beach and some first rate cliff walks. There's a nice cafe up the steps to the right side which does good cheap meals and fresh fish. The beach is fairly small when the tide is in. Didn't get to do the cave boat due to raging seas, but walked to Praia Marinha instead which was wonderful, be sure not to miss the sinkhole along the path! Limited parking but if you don't mind a walk down there are a few up the top of the road.
  • Lovely spot. Take the adventurous sea cave boat ride. Nice little cafe. Restaurant above cove. Parking tight, so arrive early or prepare to walk a ways. Really, the boat tours are not to be missed.
  • The beach where the famous cave is. Easy accessible by the car. It can get crowded around noon so finding a place to park could be hard. There is a public parking place 300 m from the beach. Not that big though. The beach is big enough to accommodate enough people. What strikes me is that this is the first beach in Algarve where there is a public shower.
  • Another gem of the Algarve coastline. Swimming distance from the must see Benagil cave! Restaurants and bars within 100 meters from the beach. Beautiful views also within walking distance. Boat trips available. Definitely worth a visit!
  • Lovely and amazing beach. Fantastic views and warm water.
