    Nice experience. Also good with children. Make sure you don't go after 10 am because then it gets very busy with parking and on the water. Then lovely 30 minute cliff walk to one of the most beautiful beaches in Europe, Marinha Beach. Bring a bottle of water with you

    Kayaking very nice to do, we walk along the coast, we enter caves and small dark recesses but which once inside is very pretty to see. The benagil cave is exceptional despite the fact that it is packed with tourists. The best time is probably in the morning to do this activity.

    Even though it's very touristy, it was a great experience. The Benagil Cave is very crowded, but kayaking through other small caves was exciting and well secured by the 2 guides. We'll do that again. It makes sense to be there 30 minutes beforehand, it is a bit of a walk from the parking lot, there are toilets and a cafe on the beach. You get a waterproof bag and the shoes come in a collection box. Your bottom gets wet in the kayak, so wear swimming gear, a T-shirt under the life jacket for your shoulders and a hat if you are sensitive.
