Sail to the sea cave of Benagil

Published on 9 February 2021 at 11:00

Take a kayak from Praia de Benagil and sail to the famous sea cave, also known as Algar de Benagil. The locals call it Grutas te Benagil. It is one of the top things to do in Algarve. Some people find it one of the most beautiful places in the world. What's really fascinating about this cave is the miracelous beach inside of it, hidden under a natural roof. It is definitely a place you must have been!


You can rent a kayak starting from 35,-  and sail to this heavenly place, located 150m away from the beach. But there are also several boattrips with larger boats which are passing by Algar a Benagil. Or you  can choose for a boattrip with a speedboat if you want to go inside the cave.

You can find this cave near from Praia de Benagil, a small beach of the fishing village Benagil, located between high cliffs. This beach may not be really big, but it surely is a place full of adventure, as there are many activities held that will lead you to the famous cave. There is also  a small beach bar where you can enjoy some snacks and drinks. 


The nearest cities are Lagoa and Carvoeiro. It is 15 minutes driving. There is a free parking spot near from the beach, but be aware that it gets occupied really quick. If you want to park your car, it's the best to go early in the morning or in the evening.
