The coastal area between Benagil and the Praia Marinha beach, which lies 2km further east, is one of the 10 most beautiful beaches in Europe. This area is not badly built. You go along the steep Cliffs on well protected trails, provided with information boards. It has a fantastic view of the magnificent surrounding sandy Cliffs and the shimmering Atlantic Ocean. The coast line is formed by the sea, by carving caves, arches and sinkholes. After 1 km you will reach a small sandy beach and the water here is so clear, that the seabed can be seen clearly.
