Loved this beach, beautiful sands, caves and rock formations, very hilly but we'll worth the trip down to the lovely cove.

A very nice beach with nice restaurants around and great walking paths! There is also a nice boat tour one can book at the beach where you get to see all the nice caves!

Benagil Beach is worth a visit. Yes it must have changed from years ago but it's still beautiful. Small and gorgeous with boats to caves going in and out. However DO NOT eat at the beach bar. We wanted simple lunch and were charged 15€...More

I was afraid that this beach would not be worth the hype, but it completely was! On its own it's beautiful! But we also took a tour of the caves, which I highly recommend. It's reasonably price and very very worth the time!

It is a very busy beach, also the starting point for boat trips to the caves. To get to the caves, there must be a calm sea and a low tide, otherwise they only show you the coast and the cave you will not visit,...More

Praia de Benagil and the Benagil caves are absolutely beautiful and is a must if visiting the area. Just hope that the weather allows you to go into the caves.

I am sure. None of the boat tours I saw allowed anyone to get off the boat. They pulled into the cave, allowed people to snap a few photos and were out in 30 seconds or less, on to the next cave. Everyone that was there swam... More

On vient d'aménager un grand park de stationnement, tout en haut de la falaise, côté gauche de la plage. Un bon point de départ aussi pour faire une promenade sur la cote.
