Benagil Caves and the Rock Formations

The entire coast of the Western Algarve is composed of limestone, easily permeable, which explains the fact that we find so many sea caves in this area, they are certainly the most rocky formations here, and they are enumerated and of course Benagil Caves.

The mediation of the Benagil cave happens because it has two relatively larger entrances than other caves and a cavity at the top that allows for unique lighting, without ever forgetting that when the sea is calm we can walk inland.

This cave has a small beach that makes this gem a place worthy of being inside the most famous cave in the world. It is undeniable that the entire coast seems to be sculpted, delicately by an artist.

When we take the tour from Portimão, we can contemplate not only the Benagil rock, but all the yellow rocks, carved with works of art, where if we use our imagination we can see animals, such as gorillas or even an elephant drinking water by the beach of the Navy.
