Full description

Explore the caves and beaches that dot Portugal's southern coast on a boat trip from Portimão to Algar Benagil. Take in some of Europe's most beautiful beaches and fishing villages from the water and even cool off with a quick swim from the boat.

Descend the Arade River on the way to the sea, passing the picturesque village of Ferragudo on the way. Snap a picture of what is considered one of the most picturesque towns in Portugal and catch a glimpse of the 19th-century Fort of São João do Arade, also known as Ferragudo Castle.

See Carvoeiro – considered to be one of the most beautiful fishing villages in Europe – and admire its natural walkway that leads into the cavernous Algar of Benagil. Discover the beauty of Arcos da Praia da Marinha beach, and see why it's considered to be one of the best in the world.

After a stop for a quick swim, return by boat to Portimão.

Very funny. The very friendly guide, my wife and my son got dizzy because of the heat that day, he was attentive and offered us a bottle of water to cool off.
