Why does chartering a yacht to cruise the open waters elevate any trip to Vilamoura?

Read on for eight reasons that chartering a yacht in Vilamoura is the best way to have a memorable trip to the Portugal coast!

1. You Can’t Say You’ve Been to Vilamoura If You Haven’t Hit the Open Waters

Vilamoura is more than just five-star seafood restaurants, pristine golf courses, and historic castles and cathedrals. One of the many reasons that Vilamoura has become the go-to spot for vacationers all over the world is its unbeatable natural beauty.

There’s no better way to bear witness to that natural beauty than from the front of a yacht. In fact, if you don’t head out in open waters at least once during your stay, you’ll miss the true essence of this incredible Portuguese town.

2. The Caves Are Easiest to Reach by Boat

The Algarve region is dotted with incredible sea caves that you won’t want to miss. The Benagil Cave, in particular, is a must-see if you’re visiting Vilamoura, as it is the only sea cave in the area to have a naturally occurring skylight. When the sun hits this open space at the top of the Benagil Cave, you’ll see an incredible light show as the water reflects off of the yellow and orange walls of the cave.

The best way to reach the sea caves of Vilamoura is by boat. We can take you directly to the Benagil Cave, where you can head right into the mouth of the cave.

3. Get a Great View of Algarve’s Dramatic Cliffs

Another stunning natural feature of the Algarve region is the series of dramatic cliffs that have been naturally carved along the coastline. Hiking along the tops of the cliffs provides a beautiful view of the sea, but you can’t miss a view of the cliffs from below, too. From a chartered yacht, you’ll be able to see all of the colors and textures formed by the sea over centuries.

4. Head to the Best Spots for Snorkeling and Paddle boarding

If you love adventure, you’re not going to want to miss the opportunity to dive into the ocean and go snorkeling or paddle boarding off the coast of Portugal. With such crystal clear waters, you can enjoy underwater scenery like no other. Finish up a day of fun by catching some gentle Atlantic waves or go for a quiet exploration of the coast in a kayak.

5. Catch Sight of Dolphins in the Wild
