06 Dec Expat Nomads explore the cliffs and caves of the Algarve
The first trip we went on after settling down in Portimao was to the Algarve Coast and Caves. The trip that we arranged was on a small hard bottom boat, Bill was sick that day and the trip had to be rescheduled. The next week Captain Dave called and let us know the trip was cancelled due to weather and he was no longer going out since the tourist season was over. This is where we made our mistake. We scheduled the trip on a 19 passenger Catamaran and the trip was at low tide. We were only able to enter one cave, which was the longest sea cave river in Europe. The beautiful cliffs and caves were still very enjoyable, and these are formed by the erosion of the vociferous limestone rock caused by rain, the sea, and living creatures. The highlight of the tour was the Benegal Cave, one of the ten natural wonders of the world.
