A MUST When Visiting the Algarve

We are not usually into taking group tours, but since this is the only way to see the Benagil Caves on the Algarve coast, we opted in. Are we ever glad that we did. Such fun! A great speedboat ride, not too many people (16 on our trip), and the beauty of the caves cannot be overstated. They are simply amazing and shouldn't be missed. The boat driver and guide were both superb, and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Highly recommended if you are in the area. We departed from Lagos so got a bit of a longer ride, and on a beautiful September day, it was just perfect. We'd even do it again.

Great excursion

Been coming to the Algarve for 11 years so was really interesting to do something new, and the Benagil Cave trip did not disappoint. The guide (Michael I think) was knowledgable on the different caves and it was a great way to see the beach-lines from the sea. You don’t learn a lot (it’s a cave) but you don’t need a history lesson to get some great pictures for Instagram. If you have 2 hours free in an afternoon, before the bars, I would recommend it as an easy way to see a different part of the beauty of the Algarve.
