What people are saying about Benagil beach

The experience was incredible, the host was a genius. I am very grateful to have been on this well organised tour as it made my proposal to my partner very special. The host Eduardo took photos along the way and made it extra nice. Would highly recommend get your guide for any exclusions.

Sonja and Miguel did a great job leading the group of 10 people. They gave good tips, were always friendly and helpful, so there was never any uncertainty. Definitely book the 9am tour. You are almost alone in the cave and there are no boats in your way.

In time pick up, with clear and good instructions about the bodyboard usage. I found it's way less time - 40 mins to spend in the cave. Generally, good value for money

Very nice tour! We went paddle boarding instead of supping, because the waves were too high. Highly recommended!

Knowledgeable tour guides. Felt taken care of. Amazing experience and we were given plenty of time in the cave.
