Swim and Chill at Benagil

This is not a boat trip. We at Vagabundo Travel are the only tour that gets you inside the Benagil cave. We get inside the cave by swimming 60m around the coastline with boards, life vests and inflatables. Boats will drive by, but a photo from the boat is only half an experience, we get you inside the cave and get sand on your toes. The swim into the cave does require a moderate level of swimming ability, we always have guides to help with the swim, but we can't swim for you. For an additional cost you can hire a SUP board or kayak to help you into the cave. The swim is dependent on weather conditions, however we will inform you prior to your selected date and make other arrangements if weather will effect our day.
