  • We had an absolute blast on a tour with André Matos. André was enthusiastic, eager to help and really helped make this a great experience. Unlike the larger tour groups that run from the beach...

  • Stunning beach! Wow! One of the prettiest in the world, with striking rock formations. Highly recommend André Matos Boat Trips to see the caves and beaches. Definitely go early in the morning...

  • Stunning beach. Definitely get a boat and go explore the caves. It is very crowded but if you come early in the morning there is not that many people there and you can also take vary cool pics.
  • Stunning beach! Nature´s miracle. Be sure to go there soon to catch a boat to the caves or book in advance!
  • I loved this place. The portugueses were friendly and fun to ride with. We took an amazing boat trip and Kayak ride. Best landscape ever seeing.
  • Tough surf today but gorgeous spot!
  • The beach perse is small, not clean, and CROWDED. Between 10 and 17 it's full , and water is full of kayak, bout , yachts..it's just creasy. A lot of parking but in up hill,.free. A lot of companies and just guides how offered tours there. Benagil cave is just like 10 m away, it's beautiful, you can swim to it (but even boat are entering it, so it's dangerous). Perfect place to practice kayak o standuppadell (better by yourself or in small group) early in the morning (until 9 o 10 am), o in the evening. 3 restaurants are just there. Parking is big and it's open for van and motorhome. Great trekking part also.
