Grutas de Benagil (Benagil Caves) are a must visit if you are in southern Portugal. They are located in Praia de Benagil between Carvoeiro and Armação de Pêra, two traditional towns with some of the best beaches and restaurants in the Algarve.
The grutas are only accessible from the ocean which means the easiest and most typical way to visit the grutas is by boat. You’ll find plenty of companies offering trips to the caves on nearby beaches such as Praia de Armação de Pêra and even further away in Albufeira. From the boat you’ll also get a great view of the impressive Algarvian coastline known for its spectacular rock formations and other hidden seaside caves.
If you’re looking for something a little less typical, why not try a guided kayak or SUP tour to the caves. If you want to push the boat out even further, why not swim to the caves on a guided swimming tour? Get in touch with us if you’d like us to arrange any of the above for you.
Please note however, we do not recommend kayaking, SUP or swimming to the caves without a guided tour due to boat traffic and risk of getting stranded at sea. That would not be so fun!
