What people are saying about Benagil beach

The best tour I have ever done in my life! From the beginning the communication with the guide and then the activity was impressive, he stopped in all the caves, we bathed in front of the Praia da Marina and even went in search of dolphins because he detected them nearby, in addition to his explanations and that he left us on the beach of Carvoeiro so as not to have to return to Portimao and thus start our Trail through the Setes Valles Suspensos. It was an incredible tour!

The experience was very positive and good. The guide who transported him was very accessible and helpful, as well as on the tour carried out with the proper presentation of each point of the trip.

Very great experience! We saw beautiful places and our guides were super nice and were able to enrich us with a lot of information! Always happy, it's worth it!

A great family outing, Mestre Joaquim was tireless and took us inside immense caves, making the trip even more worthwhile. I recommend!

The guide was extremely nice e had a profound knowledge of the caves.
