Benagil Sea Cave

Praia de Benagil is a beautiful beach close to Lagoa. The beach is most famous for its Algar de Benagil, a sensational cave. This cave has in the ceiling a round hole that frames the inside of the beautiful blue sky. You can find Benagil and his cave on many lists of' places you have to see in your lifetime.' Without a doubt, one of the best things to see in the Algarve is this wonder of nature. 

Praia do Ancão is the place where locals in the know and the Portuguese upper-crust go to enjoy the time on the beach.

In spite of its secluded status, there are still plenty of restaurants and bars nearby to enjoy, and water sports are quite popular. You can enjoy stylish tapas, salads or seafood at "11 na Praia", with a view of the sea. 

About the first picture... this is the famous sea cave Benagil at the coast of Algarve, Portugal. I went there by canoe.

In case you wanted to swim thou no one will stop you swimming into the cave but also no-one might be around to rescue you if there's a problem. The tides here can be very strong. Do get some detailed advice locally.
