What people are saying about Benagil

Absolutely incredible. Our guides were great. They gave us a good explanation on how to kayak and we were off. They shared information about the cave and offered to take pictures for us. They used the panoramic setting vertically (something I wouldn’t have thought of ) and we have incredible photos all thanks to them!

What a GREAT experience! We loved every second of it and we were SO glad we did the sunrise kayak as we had the whole beach to ourselves. The guides were funny, knowledgeable and simply great guys! 5+ stars!

Amazing experience and well worth the early wake up to get to the caves before the crowds! The guides are easy going and organized. Very safe and fun activity.

Amazing experience, Francisco was fantastic. This was the highlight of our trip to Lagos. Highly recommend going at sunrise, the early start is worth it!
