    Very beautiful Kajak tour to one of the nicest beaches and caves ive seen so far. The tour is Not super easy but its definitely doable. Bring sun Protection, some snacks and water. Even though the tourguide provides you delicious bread and some water. I got really hungry. You will Make a break at the beach and u will have enough time to swim a little or just rest at the beach. The guide was very kind he answered all questions, and was not intrusive like other guides i have got to known on previous tours. Definitely recommend !

    Super nice guide (Eddy) and nice tour in 2-person kayaks along the coast with a good half-hour stop at a very nice beach. Eddy had distributed some cake and there was water. Top! Nice coast, although the number of caves is manageable. There was more to see in the Algarve. Still a clear recommendation! Our 11-year-old son was allowed to drive with Eddy, which was great for him (and since we parents drove around two / three narrow places). Thank you for the nice trip!

    The kayaking experience was amazing! You can't beat the view of being on the water looking up at the cliffs or into the caves. In addition, the beach we went to is only accessible by a long walk or boat which meant it wasn't busy or crowded. Once again, the view was incredible! Our guide had a juice box ajd homemade cake for us as well, and a water bottle when we started. I wish we would've gotten a little more regular information from our guide. While he was very informative at the stopping points I wish he would've told us more along the way. Definitely worth your time!
