Benagil Beach, once dominated by the seafarers, is now a summer destination due to its crystal and calm waters. The wooden boats continue to colour the water landscape and to welcome the visitors. This is, without a doubt, one of the most beautiful beaches amongst the 40 existing in the council. Like Algar da Praia de Benagil, the algar at Benagil Beach is a natural ex-libris and one of the most famous of Lagoa. Between the Farol de Alfanzina (Lighthouse of Alfanzina) and Nova Beach, there are dozens of tour-boats to these amazing water caves. It is part of the Seven Hanging Valleys walk, which is a walking trail extending for 5.7 Km along the cliff that joins Vale de Centeanes Beach to the Marinha Beach, being Benagil the lowest point of the trail, reaching 7.50 m above the sea level. Nearby there are some prehistorical archaeological traces on Vale d’El Rei, a little to the Norwest of the beach. Nothing beats a good picnic in the beach. Don’t forget your Lagoa Genial Picnic.
