About
With the sun streaming through its sandstone ceiling onto the beach below, Benagil Caves (Algar de Benagil) is one of the Algarve’s most iconic sights—but you can only access the cave from the water. This short tour, with a range of departures throughout the day, uses a small boat so that (conditions permitting) you can enter the cave and take photos.

Magnificent Natural Rock Formations
Visited this cave via a boat tour from Albuferia. Much better than pictures - very sunny day and there wasn't many people around. Sadly we weren't allowed to go ashore into the cave, but it was a magnificent sight nonetheless. 👍

Great trip!
This is a great tour of the benagil caves from Portimao. We visited lots of caves in the areas, driving in and out, experiencing the contrasts. We could really take in the sights of the whole coastline and the guide explained the different bays and beaches we were seeing making it easy to know where we were and to decide where to visit next. We really enjoyed the quick speedboat return to the port, not for the faint hearted!

What breathtaking views and a great morning had by my whole family. Our captain was knowledgeable and amusing taking us on an immersive experience of the cave. Zipping back along the coast to the port on the speed boat was exhilarating too.

Our amazing experience
The crew was very nice. We saw the most known caves and had the chance to dive in the ocean and see the dolphines. Amazing experience.

LOVED the Andre's on Algarve Discovery's: Benagil & Marinha Tour
Jul 2021
Our party of (8) LOVED both Andre's of Algarve Discovery's: Benagil & Marinha tour! Andre the captain & Andre the guide were a perfect balance of professionalism & fun on our private tour. We were running late and very much appreciated their patience as we began our tour. Andre the guide was very informative with all of the sites and questions we had. We really appreciated Andre the captain as he gently & expertly guided us into the caves for amazing views. We saw a number of caves along the coast, each one was beautiful and unique. The Benagil cave was the most crowded with other boats and kayaks but they did a great job of getting us in and out of the cave with plenty of time to experience the views and energy. After the last cave we had an opportunity to jump into the water and cool off. Again, both Andre's delivered a true vacation experience as we never felt rushed or that we lingered any one place too long. Take this tour & if you can, make it a private experience & have the boat to yourself (some of the other boats we saw were very crowded)!!!

Great experience
Excellent visit with a very friendly guide. He showed us a lot of different caverns and landscapes with interesting explanation for each one of them.
The only downside is that the benagil cavern is actually quite disappointing due to the big amount of tourists there.
I Would recommend Algarve Discovery to anyone that what’s to see the coast of Algarve!

Great tour
Jul 2021
This was a great tour of the coast from Portimao to Benagil cave. The boat is small enough to get into caves and very far into Benagil so you can really get a good look at the hole. The guides are fun and have good information. There are a couple of bench seats and the rest you straddle like a horse, comfortable enough. They will let you jump into the water for a brief time so bring your towel and wear your bathing suit or not. Totally recommend this trip.
