Explore the Benagil Sea Cave

Onboard the Catamaran Ophelia, pass the picturesque Ferragudo fishing village and the historic castle overlooking the beach. Keep your camera ready to capture the stunning natural rock formations and caves as you cruise by it. Next, hop on to a small boat or dinghy to see the famous Benagil Sea Caves up close and marvel at the rock formations and the magnificent open dome.

Indulge in a Beach BBQ

After exploring the caves, the Ophelia anchors in a calm area of crystal-clear water. You will go to a secluded beach where you relax and soak up the sun. The crew will set up a BBQ feast, filling the air with the delicious smells of sizzling meat. The menu includes bread, an Algarve salad, mixed grilled meats, fruit of the season, white or red wine, water, and orangeade.

Explore the Coastline with Water Activities

After lunch, relax on the beach or choose to swim or snorkel. The Ophelia will then sail towards Portimão, passing by some of the most beautiful and secluded cove beaches around Carvoeiro. With an inner lounge, shaded decks, and sundecks, you can relax and take in the stunning scenery in style.
