What people are saying about Benagil beach

We had a very friendly and professional welcome at the house, then embarked on a SUP-adventure with Sônia! She took us to all the beautiful caves and was very attentive to us and our level as paddleboarders :) A top notch experience all in all, highly recommend! Thanks Sônia for a lovely day :)

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.

Wonderful staff, helped our daughter feel comfortable with her first time.
