Benagil beach

Benagil is a beach on the shore of the village of the same name, at the foot of high limestone rocks, which have shapes resembling the Renaissance Gothic structures. You can get to Benagil by rented car. There is a parking lot near the beach, but free spaces available only in the early morning.

Beach description

The coastline, protected from all sides by rocks, is covered with sand. The descent into the water is relatively gentle, the bottom is sandy. The water is calm and warm. It's windless. You can swim, sunbathe, snorkel and dive. There's a restaurant, lifeguards and a shower. It's better to bring mats and umbrellas with you as there is not enough beach equipment. Benagil is extremely popular and always very crowded. On the shore, you can rent a kayak or a boat and take a sea trip between rocks with impressive grottoes and caves. You can buy sightseeing tours on boats with guides to visit a certain number of grottoes. Excursions to natural masterpieces not of human making leave a lasting impression on people of all ages. The Algar de Benagil Cave, which can only be reached by sea, deserves special attention.

When is the best time to go?

The beach season in Portugal lasts from the beginning of June until September, when the air temperature reaches +30°C and the water temperature - +19°C. It should be remembered that the Atlantic Ocean does not warm up well and cools quickly, lovers of a more comfortable temperature can swim in natural stone pools, which are quite numerous on the coast.
