How are shaped the sea caves we visit?

Passeio de Barco às Grutas De Benagil e Costa - Praia Marinha

The amazing carved rocks diving in the ocean features the West Algarve. Most of the cliffs have hidden secrets: sea caves that look like a fairy tale scenario. And the fact that a lot of them are only accessible by boat is even more magical, besides the unbelievable rocks shapes and the hard to describe blue of the water.

Algarve caves are one of the region treasures, although Portugal has other caves that are worth to visit. Sea caves are the most common and are shaped through thousands of years in the cliffs. It's the waves erosion action that open cavities in the rock. The sea abrasion carves the less resistant layers and creates different spaces inside the cliffs, the sea caves. 

Take a boat trip in the Algarve with AlgarExperience and discover the most beautiful caves, namely the famous Algar de Benagil cave with a frame at the top framing the celestial blue. Also make sure to visit the Dois Olhos cave, which, as the name implies, looks like the sky is watching us. Or the heart that erosion cut into the rock to name this cave.

On our boat trips, thanks to the glass bottom on the hull, you can also observe the fauna and flora of the Algarve sea.
