Portimão: Benagil Caves Tour with Sunset Option by Speed Boat


Embark on an adrenaline-pumping ride along Portugal’s rugged Algarve coast to the awe-inspiring Benagil Caves. Meet your captain in Portimão for a brisk briefing before rocketing off in a sleek speedboat skimming the Arade River. Learn of smugglers’ tales and naval battles while spotting coastal castles and tiny fishing villages.
Glimpse bobbing dolphins and point them out – the boat diverts off-course if the playful pods venture near. Weave through sea-carved grottoes and arches before the legendary Benagil Caves loom into view. Motoring inside, marvel at Cathedral-like chambers with sunbeams radiating through lofty skylights.
Echoes reverberate off soaring walls enclosing a secluded golden beach. Capture Instagram-worthy vistas around each bend. As the boat bounces on waves back to Portimão, toast a sunset with wine if you selected an evening cruise.
