The Experience:

Passing Portimão, Albufeira, Gale, Armação de Pera, Carvoeiro and next to the small Algarve village of Benagil, is one of the most beautiful sea caves in the world – the Benagil sea cave or the Algar de Benagil. Reachable only by sea, it is one of the most romantic places in the Algarve. The Benagil cave is a large domed cave, with a high open ceiling. The small opening expands into the larger than expected cave, with sunlight streaming through openings above in the rock dome roof. This shines a spotlight on the fine golden sand and the translucent water, creating a magical effect. Come relax and enjoy the Benagil sea cave and the many other impressive caves along the coastline.

“Great afternoon! Friendly, punctual, and professional crew made it spectacular, and the service was better than many of the swanky restaurants around the marina. Happy to go out with you again next spring, too!”

“Fantastic experience! We wanted to go on a cruise to see the caves along the Algarve coast. We had never been to Portugal before and didn’t know what to expect. My husband did some research and booked online with Lux Charters. The online booking process was very smooth and we used PayPal to pay for the charter. We were met at the Vilamoura Marina by the owner who boarded us on the boat, B. Happy. On B. Happy the staff greeted us with champagne and provided impeccable service throughout the day. The crew were very knowledgeable about all of the caves we visited. The skipper maneuvered the boat inside the Benagil Cave – this gave us a terrific vantage point to see the cave. The crew helped us get into the kayaks and we paddled over to the secluded beach inside the cave. The Benagil cave was magnificent! The colors, the sun flowing through the roof, and the bright blue water moving in and out of the cave was breathtaking. We certainly recommend the services of Lux Charters very highly. This was an experience of a lifetime!”

“I decided to book an afternoon cruise of 4 hours on the 28/09/2019 as a 60th Birthday present for myself, my daughter and son and his fiancée. We included sushi as an extra option. Unlimited bubbles were the order of the day. The crew were fantastic and could not do enough to make this a truly memorable experience. We cruised along the coast going west from Vilamoura, swam in one of the many coves and saw the awesome Benagil Caves. We returned in a fraction of the time as the boat was at top speed, truly exhilarating. Many thanks for making this the perfect day!”
