    Journey to one of the top highlights of the Algarve: the Lagos Caves. Hop in a kayak for an active and adventurous trip to the characteristic rock formations that continue to charm visitors with their mystique and beauty. Let your experienced guide lead you to the most impressive caves on the Algarve coastline. Learn how the beautiful shapes and patterns decorating the cave walls were created by sea erosion and get to know the unique flora and fauna of the area while snorkeling. Then enjoy a relaxing stay at a beach which is solely accessible by boat. If you don't feel like paddling back, opt to ride on the support boat, which will be close by at all times during your trip.

    Our guide took us through so many small caves and arches. He led us down close to the coast so we could see all the details. He didn’t rush us so we had time to enjoy the beauty and take pics. They provide a dry bag so you can bring your bag with you or they have lockers. They tow you back with a boat so you only paddle one way. We absolutely loved it. It was convenient to book online.
