Unfortunately, my booked tour could not take place due to a lack of participants. I was kindly rebooked to another provider with the same (or similar) tour at short notice. Unfortunately, we had very high waves, which is why it wasn't clear at first whether we could even go into the cave. However, the pictures suggest that if the waves are optimal, you can drive deep into the cave and see a lot. But after I was there, it is apparent that even with better waves you can only go into the cave minimally (since the water is not deep enough there) and thus only see the entrance. After all the pictures I saw of the cave, I was hoping for more. If you want to see the cave in full, you should book a kayak tour (these are also offered directly on the beach next to the cave, so you don't have to kayak for hours). I would not book the tour again in this form.

Very good experience. The crew is very nice and showed us around many caves (including the famous Benagil which is the most touristic) giving us lots of explanations. I recommend.
