Benagil Sea Cave

The Benagil Sea Cave is one of a number of caves that lines the coast of the Algarve. Accessible only by sea, this iconic cave is around the corner from the beach in the small town of Benagil.

The 3 hour trip along the coast from Portimao will offer you the opportunity to see what the website ‘Things to see before you die’ said was a hidden wonder of the world, along with the stunning rocky coast line.


Lagos & Ponta Da Piedade

We depart this 2 hour trip from Alvor, sailing across Lagos Bay, to Ponta da Peidade the best way to appreciate its beauty is from the sea. We take you around the rock pillars, natural tunnels and grottoes. The water is wonderfully clear and the bright sunshine filters through the holes in the rocks to magically reflect off the water.

As we pass Lagos, imagine the days of the past when the harbour was brimming with boats being built and readied to sail to discover the world in 15th Century
