When we both walked in and around the caves they would take your breath away the beaches were so clean and we were able to get refreshment near by.

The caves along the coastline are well worth a visit. The water is cold so be warned if thinking going for a swim.

My heavily pregnant wife and I wanted to do caves and dolphins on a boat tour... There are several to choose from and a slight variation in prices. We chose and booked from a kiosk at the top of 'the strip' the Belize cruise. They have a bar down in the marina and offer three tines a day trips, one... More

We set off from Vilamoura Marina at 2pm. Chose to sit at the front of the boat and it was the best place to catch a bit of sun. Spent around an hour and a half cruising to the caves. The tour guide 'Daniel' explained when we passed beaches and rock formations. Was ideal weather for the trip even in... More

This was a great trip and even better because the sun was shining! The staff tend to go a little crazy on the speed boat though, so be prepared. The tour of the caves are lovely and very informative. I would highly recommend.

Definitely worth a trip, stunning caves which you can go into in a dingy! We went on the Amorita and the crew were very friendly and informative.

These cruises go from Vilemaura Marina. We went in January, so couldnt go into the caves, but in the summer this would be amazing. The trip also takes you to a beach where you can swim and some of the cruises also provide a beach barbeque. You then go dolphin spotting in open water on the way back.
