What is the Benagil cave?
Much is said about a natural place, of odd beauty, which undeniably seems to be very fashionable!
Benagil! But, after all, what is the Benagil cave?
The Benagil cave, is a natural cave off the beach of Benagil. Eventually a consequence of years of erosion, of the sea on limestone rocks. These yellow stones have been changing over the years, therefore, changing the natural landscape and allowing these stunning places.
This erosion, therefore resulting from centuries of history and stories, derives from the natural grotto off the small fishermen’s beach. Formerly a fishermen’s beach, considered a port of refuge, and where the local people used to live for good fish. Now it is a symbol of unmistakable beauty, and that derived from the means of communication, allowed it to spread throughout the 4 corners of the world. I dare to detail this cave, trying to make visible to those who read this article, the magnificence of this rock formation. It is a small beach, inside a natural cave, composed of two openings, bathed by the sea.
At the top we can contemplate, a huge “window”, which provides the contemplation of the sky. Thus, it becomes a place of Olympus, for those who find here a place still practically untouched by man.
Nature in its purest state. Benagil Cave is one of the few places where communion with nature is still possible.
Benagil Seen from the Top
We found some pictures taken from the top of Benagil. Benagil, is part of one of the most famous walking routes in the area “The 7 suspended valleys” with a trail of 5.4 km, and which includes this view from the top of Benagil, it is possible to see the wooden fences that signal the hole that it seems a little lost among the rocks.
For security reasons and taking into account the instability of the cliffs, it is properly signposted and protected. Since we are at the top of these yellow cliffs, it is impossible not to marvel at the splendor of nature in this place. Each rock looks delicately sculpted, and with the oscillations of sunlight it is possible to appreciate different shades.
Benagil is therefore one of the sea caves that you can find on a pedestrian walk that starts at Praia da Marinha.
