The Benagil Cave or Algar de Benagil is an easily accessible beach with parking and restaurants. It is from there that the grotto can be reached, and access is made only by the sea. The beach and its beautiful cave are in the Algarve, a region in the south of Portugal, famous for the beautiful beaches with calm and clear waters and golden cliffs that make up its landscape.
WHY THIS PLACE
The cave in the middle of the sea, with a hole in the roof, is a work of art. The arches of entrance to the cave and with the spotlight of natural light that is created in the sand strip of the small and peaceful beach are impressive. The sun's rays that enter through the opening of Algar de Benagil are a true spectacle of nature. In this way, a unique natural lighting is achieved, with a frame at the top framing the celestial blue, guaranteeing a breathtaking elopement wedding.
This cheerful and sunny paradise is known as "Europe's most famous secret". This type of sea cave forms in the cliff areas and results from the action of wave erosion, which opens cavities in the rock. The erosive / abrasive action of the sea will preferentially wear the least resistant layers, thus creating spaces that can have the most varied dimensions, that is, the sea caves.
