5 fun portimao boat trips to do.

Portimao is located in the Algarve between the city of Lagos and the famous Benagil Caves. It’s a coastal city so you can imagine that water activities are amongst the best things to do in Portimao. If you’re looking to get out and see the beautiful Algarve Coast then Portimao is one of the best places to go from!

On a good day, you’ll see dolphins swimming back and forth around the Algarve. You’ll also come across some of the most beautiful golden sand beaches. Lagos is known for its amazing beaches but between Lagos and Benagil there are some incredible ones as well.

Portimao isn’t as big as Lagos but it still has a marina and an awesome selection of boat trips. We’ve tried to keep it simple and only recommend the best Portimao boat tours based on our own experience, costumer reviews, and value for your money. So in this post, you will find 5 trips to pick from that highlight the Algarve the best.

5 of the best boat trips in Portimao

Know before you go:

  • ⛵️ Book your Portimao boat tours on GetYourGuide or Viator
  • 👩🏼‍⚕️ Insurance: Make sure your adventures are insured with SafetyWing
  • ☀️ Wear waterproof & eco-friendly sunscreen
  • 📸 Bring your camera and get Insta ready
  • 💦 Stay hydrated with a LifeStraw water bottle

⚠️ Note: Most Portimao boat trips book out in advance during the summer months in the Algarve so it’s best to book in advance!

It’s quite common for Portimao boat trips to either visit the famous Grotte de Benagil on the east or Lagos and Ponta da Piedade on the west. There are many different types of boat tours from speed boats to proper sail boats. And if you’re feeling more adventurous and active, renting a kayak is also an option.

Let’s get into it!

#1 Portimão: Benagil Cave Cruise with Dolphin Watching

powerboating portimao

⛵️ Book: your Benagil Cave Cruise from Portimao here ⏰ Time: Roughly 2.5 hours 💸 Cost: €35

On this boat trip from Portimao , you’ll get to see the two most exciting things there are to see in the Algarve: Dolphins and the Benagil Cave. Dolphins are quite common in this part of the world especially when the Algarve heats up between June and October. 

And we’re typically not talking 1-2 dolphins. We’re talking big pods of dolphins! If you’re lucky you may see dozens of them coming up real close and swimming next to your boat. It’s really remarkable.

On top of (hopefully) seeing a bunch of dolphins, you’ll visit the coastline by Benagil which is quite close to Portimão. Benagil has beautiful beaches and cliffs and caves where the most famous is Grotte de Benagil (or Benagil Caves in English) which is what you see in the image above.

The skilled skippers will actually take the boat right into the cave where you can see just how big it really is. You won’t spend much time in the cave but you will get a feel for it and see how cool it really is. If you want to go back and spend more time in the caves you can always rent a kayak .

The rest of the trip is just relaxing out on the water and enjoying the beautiful Portuguese coastline down here in the Algarve. It’s one of the most beautiful places in Portugal for a reason and this boat tour will show you all that.

Book your Benagil Cave Cruise tour here.

#2 Portimão: Pirate Ship Cave Cruise

powerboating portimao

⛵️ Book : your Pirate Ship Cave Cruise from Portimao here ⏰ Time: Roughly 3 hours 💸 Cost: €35

If we said you can actually walk the plank like a true pirate and jump into the ocean, would you do it? This boat trip from Portimao isn’t on a pirate ship just for show. You get to hoist the sails and even board a small little boat to go inside some of the famous Benagil Caves! 

It’s such a unique experience and the pirate ship is stunning. They run both morning, afternoon, and evening cruises. The evening ones with the sun setting along the Algarve are beautiful and something worth experiencing. 

During the three hours on and off this pirate ship, you get to experience the best of the Algarve coast. From caves to swimming in the ocean and seeing dolphins there’s no time to be bored. 

You won’t be able to keep up with dolphins on this ship like you would on some of the speed boats but if they’re swimming by, you will have a great angle from above and hopefully get a chance to see them jumping in and out of the water.

If that’s not enough you’ll pass by a beautiful castle and a lighthouse, and you’ll also learn a bit about the history of the Algarve and the battles that took place in this area of Portugal.

#3 Portimão: Kayak tour of Benagil Caves

powerboating portimao

⛵️ Book: your Kayak Tour of Benagil Caves from Portimao here ⏰ Time: Roughly 2.5 hours 💸 Cost: €40

This kayak tour from Portimão gives you the possibility to actually kayak and explore the famous Cathedral Cave of Benagil. Most boats can get into the cave but don’t actually dock in there. With a kayak you’ll have the chance to kayak into and dock at the beach inside the Benagil Cave which is something everyone has to try!

You’ll start by taking a catamaran from Portimão heading east and enjoying the views of the coastline. As you get closer to Benagil, you’ll hop in your kayak and start the trip towards the caves.

The kayaking part of this trip is quite relaxing and easy. The distance isn’t that far but still gives you enough time to enjoy it and then make your way into the Cathedral of Benagil where you’ll be able to kayak to the beach and hang out for a little bit.

You will also get the chance to explore some other smaller and less touristy caves while you’re in the area. Visiting the Benagil Caves by kayak is hands down our favourite way to explore this part of the Algarve because you get to go to some of the places where the boat tours can’t go.  If you want a bit of adventure while exploring the Algarve, the kayak trips are so fun!

Book your Kayak tour of Benagil Caves here.

#4 Portimão: Half-Day Catamaran Cruise to Benagil

powerboating portimao

⛵️ Book: your Catamaran Cruise from Portimao here ⏰ Time: Roughly 3.5 hours 💸 Cost: €35

Like most trips from Portimão, this half-day catamaran cruise to Benagil Caves leaves from the Portimão Marina. By now, you might’ve learned that the boat trips from Portimao towards Benagil have some of the best coastlines in all of Portugal to see – and this tour is no exception.

On this trip, you’ll actually dock at the João de Arens Bay where you’ll get a chance to swim, tan, or even try stand-up paddleboarding. 

You will also sail to all the famous caves around Benagil but not as close as some of the speedboats since it’s a lot harder for a sailboat to get to close and inside the caves. Some of the boat or kayak tours are better for that. 

The time on the water is so nice as you cruise in the Atlantic Ocean and look out for dolphins. This tour is that it’s 3.5 hours long and that extra hour out on the ocean is really nice since most other boat tours from Portimão are 2.5 hours.  This catamaran tour is one of the more relaxing and enjoyable tours from Portimao.

Book your Catamaran Cruise to Benagil here.

#5 Portimão: Sunset Boat Trip with Wine

powerboating portimao

⛵️ Book: your Sunset Boat Trip with Wine from Portimao here ⏰ Time: Roughly 2 hours 💸 Cost: €35

This is the perfect date idea or if you’re looking for something a little romantic to do while you’re in Portimão! For two hours you’ll cruise up and down the Algarve Coast taking in the views and admiring the sun as it sets over the ocean. If you’re daring enough you can even go for a little evening swim. 

On this sunset boat trip from Portimao , you will get some wine, water, fruit and light snacks that you can enjoy as you admire the beautiful sunset. Portugal has some of the most colourful, vivid sunsets we’ve experienced so trust us when we say you’re in for a real treat!

The boat isn’t that big so it will be a bit more intimate experience and the setting for it is absolutely perfect. For that reason, though, this sunset cruise does tend to sell out so we recommend booking it in advance if possible.

The climate in Bragança (the north-eastern most district capital Portuguese city) is Mediterranean‚ influenced by the distance from the coast and the elevation. It is very similar to the continental climate of the Spanish Meseta‚ which means cooler winters and shorter hot summers. Snow in winter is very common and can last for several days. The high in January is around 8.5 °C (47 °F) while the August and July high is around 28.5 °C (83 °F).

Situated in a zone of transition‚ the concelho has several micro-climates. The Serra do Caramulo‚ located to the west of the city‚ plays an important role in climatic terms by lessening the influences of the western air masses (although the Mondego rive’s basin makes the penetration easier). Consequently‚ Viseu’s climate is characterised by the existence of high-temperature extremes‚ with cold and wet winters and hot and dry summers. Surrounded by vineyards‚ orchards and pine-forests‚ the charming city of Viseu has been a major crossroads since the time of the Romans who chose its site for a military camp‚ one of the largest in the Iberian Peninsula. Traditionally‚ it is also the birthplace of Viriatus the Lusitanian who died in 146 BC after defying the Roman legions for five years before the Roman Decimus Junius Brutus established the camp there in 138 BC

Portimão Guide: What It’s Like to Live in Portimão

A town square on a partly cloudy day features a spacious cobblestone plaza with a few people, palm trees, and benches. Surrounding the plaza are pastel-colored buildings reminiscent of Portugal, including a church with a clock tower in the background.

Portimão  attracts very few tourists, at least when compared to the nearby towns of Praia da Rocha, Alvor, and Lagos. The reason being is that Portimão isn’t as immediately appealing as some of the other towns on  the Algarve , particularly the city centre. It also doesn’t have a beach within walking distance: the nearest beaches, Praia da Vau and Praia da Rocha, are 2-3 km away.

There’s a lot to love about Portimão, though. In comparison to other towns in the Algarve, it’s relatively untouched by tourism and much more authentically Portuguese. The riverfront area is also great for walking along, and Portimão has a fantastic sardine festival in the summer.

It also has a fantastic market (the fish section is especially great), is in an ideal location for exploring both the Western and Central Algarve, and it’s on the train line which makes it easy to get to other towns like Lagos, Faro, and Tavira, as well as other cities in Portugal like Lisbon and Porto. Bus services are frequent too, and it’s easy to get to other parts of the Algarve, including the West Coast, as well as onto other parts of Portugal.

Portimão, situated in the heart of the Algarve, is a small city famed for its fishing heritage. As the second-largest city in the Algarve after Faro, Portimão has transformed from a traditional fishing village into a vibrant urban centre.

Although many tourists head to Praia da Rocha, which technically is still part of Portimão, the city itself isn’t a popular tourist destination. However, that could be its selling point. While most of the coastal towns have now changed to cater to the demands of tourists, Portimão is still very traditionally Portuguese. And although it doesn’t always have the aesthetic charm that draws many people to the small towns, there are still very beautiful parts of Portimão to be discovered. 

Portimao Riverfront

The town’s maritime legacy is evident not only in its historical architecture but also in the local gastronomy. Portimão is renowned for its seafood, with sardines being a particular local delicacy. Every year, the town pays homage to this humble fish with the Sardine Festival, a culinary celebration that draws both locals and tourists alike.

Beyond its culinary attractions, Portimão boasts some of the Algarve’s most beautiful beaches. Praia da Rocha, with its golden sands framed by rugged cliffs, is a prime example, offering visitors a perfect blend of natural beauty and leisurely beachside activities.

The River Arade, which flows through the town, once played a pivotal role in its economic activities, and today, the riverside promenades are filled with cafes, bars, and eateries, offering picturesque views of the old bridges and the azure waters. For those seeking a mix of relaxation, adventure, and cultural immersion, Portimão provides a diverse range of experiences. Its marina acts as a launchpad for boat tours exploring hidden caves and grottoes, while its historic streets invite visitors to meander and discover the stories embedded in its walls. Whether you’re drawn to its watersports, its history, or simply the allure of the Algarvian sun, Portimão offers a slice of Portuguese coastal life that is both dynamic and deeply rooted in tradition.

Buying Property

You’ll find a range of properties for sale in Portimão, from city centre apartments to villas overlooking the nearby coast. As Portimão City Centre is located around two kilometres from the beach, prices can be a little more affordable than the beach towns. However, as well as studios and affordable one-bedroom apartments, you’ll also find plenty of luxury properties nested in the nearby cliffs or countryside.

What to See & Do

Museu de portimão.

Situated in a beautifully restored 19th-century cannery, the Museu de Portimão is a testament to the town’s rich maritime and industrial legacy. This multi-faceted museum takes visitors on a journey through time, recounting Portimão’s transition from a humble fishing village to its position as a key player in the Algarvian fish-canning industry. The museum’s primary exhibit, dedicated to this once-thriving industry, showcases an array of machinery, photographs, and artefacts, evoking the bustling scenes of the cannery at its peak.

Apart from its industrial history, the Museu de Portimão delves deep into the region’s prehistoric and cultural past. Its archaeological section displays artefacts from the Neolithic period to the Age of Discoveries, shedding light on the ancient peoples who inhabited the Algarve and the subsequent maritime expeditions launched from its shores. Additionally, temporary exhibitions often grace the museum, touching on various subjects from art to history, further enriching the narrative tapestry of Portimão and its environs. For history enthusiasts and curious visitors alike, the Museu de Portimão offers an immersive and enlightening experience, weaving a story that melds industry, culture, and the timeless pull of the sea.

Go to the beach Beach (Praia da Rocha)

steps down to the beach at Praia da Rocha

Praia da Rocha, which translates as “Rock Beach”, is one of the Algarve’s most iconic stretches of sand and stands as a proud testament to Portimão’s coastal allure. Located just a stone’s throw away from the bustling town centre, this beach is renowned for its vast expanse of golden sand flanked by imposing sandstone cliffs. These ochre cliffs create a dramatic backdrop to the shimmering azure waters of the Atlantic and offer picturesque nooks and caves that adventurous souls can explore during low tide.

As one of the region’s larger beaches, Praia da Rocha boasts an array of amenities and facilities. Beachgoers can find an abundance of beachfront cafes, bars, and restaurants lining the promenade, perfect for those looking to enjoy a refreshing drink or a sumptuous seafood meal with panoramic sea views. Moreover, the beach is well-equipped with sun loungers, parasols, and various water sports operators offering jet skiing, paddleboarding, and boat rides.

Portimão Market

Portimão Market is one of the largest markets in the Algarve. Offering a vibrant blend of colours, sounds, and aromas, the market is the go-to spot for fresh produce, particularly seafood hauled in from the adjacent Atlantic waters. Locals and visitors alike meander through the stalls, picking up fresh fish, fruits, vegetables, and regional delicacies. The market’s authentic atmosphere provides a genuine glimpse into the daily life of Portimão, making it a must-visit for those looking to experience the town’s local culture and culinary traditions.

Igreja da Nossa Senhora da Conceição

Igreja da Nossa Senhora da Conceição

The Igreja da Nossa Senhora da Conceição, or Church of Our Lady of the Conception, is a significant religious landmark in Portimão, radiating both historical and architectural charm. Originally constructed in the 15th century, the church has undergone numerous reconstructions, especially after the 1755 earthquake which severely damaged much of its structure. Today, visitors are drawn to its beautiful Manueline portal, a distinctive feature of Portuguese late Gothic architecture. Inside, the church houses various religious artworks, including the image of Nossa Senhora da Conceição, and its calming ambiance invites contemplation and reflection. 

Fortaleza de Santa Catarina

Fortaleza de Santa Catarina

The Fortaleza de Santa Catarina, standing majestically overlooking the sea in Portimão, is a sentinel of history and a protector of the coast. Originally constructed in the 17th century to guard against pirate invasions, the fortress offers a panoramic view of the Praia da Rocha and the vast Atlantic horizon. Beyond its military significance, the fort is a symbol of the region’s rich maritime heritage. Today, while its battlements no longer fend off invaders, visitors are drawn to the site to experience its serene ambiance, take in the breathtaking views, and contemplate the stories embedded in its ancient walls.

Lady in Red Galeria Arte Algarve

Lady in Red Galeria Arte Algarve

This modern gallery, with its evocative name, prides itself on promoting and showcasing a diverse array of artworks, ranging from paintings and sculptures to photographs and ceramics. Every piece is carefully curated, reflecting both the vibrant colours and culture of the Algarve, as well as broader international art movements.

Regular exhibitions mean that there’s always something new to discover, with the works of emerging artists placed alongside those of established names. 

What to Eat

portimao sardines sign

In Portimão, foodies will find themselves in a gastronomic haven, especially if they have a penchant for seafood. The town is particularly famed for its sardines, which are a must-try when visiting. During the sardine season, the aroma of freshly grilled sardines wafts through the air, as local restaurants and street vendors serve them up, traditionally laid on a slice of bread and accompanied by a salad of roasted peppers. Yet, the culinary offerings don’t stop there. Portimão boasts an abundance of seafood, fresh from the Atlantic. Delicacies such as clams, prawns, and octopus can often be enjoyed in a “cataplana,” a traditional copper cookware that steams the seafood and infuses it with rich flavours. 

Getting Here

  • Flying: Although there is a very small, regional airport near Portimão, the vast majority of people will fly into Faro Airport, the main airport for the Algarve region. From here, you can easily take a taxi or airport transfer to Portimão or take the bus into Faro where you can then take public transport from Faro to Portimão. 
  • Train: There is a bus station in Portimão, which means it’s easy to get to other destinations in the Algarve, like Faro and Lagos, as well as destinations further afield, like Lisbon and Porto. For train tickets and timetables, see cp.pt. 
  • Bus: As Portimão is one of the largest cities on the Algarve, it acts as a transport hub, particularly for the Western and Central Algarve. You can easily get a bus here from most parts of the Algarve or the rest of Portugal. For tickets and timetables for long distance coaches, see Rede Expressos or Flixbus.pt. 
  • Driving: Portimão is around 50 minutes by car from Faro Airport. There are lots of car rental companies at the airport, and rates are often cheaper than renting locally in Portimão.

  • Accommodation

Located on the banks of the Arade River, Portimao is famous for its beautiful white sand beaches and for its calm and warm waters which make it a perfect holiday destination.

The town carries a long fishing tradition, which developed especially during the 19th and 20th century with the advent of the industrialisation and tourism. Many buildings located in the old town were built during this time, when Portimao received several economic investments.

What to see in Portimão

The  Portimao  Museum  is about the history of the city and its residents who have dedicated their life to the sea for centuries.

The  Chapel of Sao José de Alcalar  is an example of unique style, just like the  Church of Nossa Senhora da Conceição , which was built in the XV century at the top of a hill in order to dominate over the town. Still today, despite the earthquake of 1755, it is possible to admire its original Gothic gate.

Enjoy some quiet and relax in the shade of the trees of the Manuel Bivar Garden , where it is still possible to spot some small fishing boats. The area of Portimao built along the coast is known as  Marina ; here is where you will find most of the shops, restaurants, and night clubs.

Those who want to enjoy the sea can’t miss  Praia da Rocha . Located about 3km from the city center, it is the most famous beach of the Algarve region. Praia da Rocha offers so many things to do and it is often crowded with tourists.

Portimao played an important strategic role during the 15th century; during this time, indeed, the  Fortress of Santa Catarina de Ribamar  was built with the purpose of defending the port and the local population from the pirates.

The coast and its beaches

There are several  beaches  near Portimao offering different types of landscapes; among the best ones,  Careanos, Vau, Barranco das Canas, Prainha .

In order to explore the very best of Portimao it is possible to join a one day boat tour along its coast; this way you will have the opportunity to discover all its beautiful beaches, some of which can be reached only by boat.

What to eat

Most of the restaurants in Portimao are located near the port and offer  grilled sardines , a local specialty.

Although sardines are typical within the whole Algarve region here in Portimao they are particularly popular, to the extent that in August a sardine festival is organised. There are also other fish specialties such as mussels, fish and beans stew, other types of stews, corn flour based dishes, and so much more.

How to get to Portimão

Just like the rest of the Algarve region, in order to visit Portimao you need to land in  Faro ;  Portimao  is located about 60 km from this airport connected with Lisbon, Porto and several other European cities.

If you want to travel by train, the  Largo Sàrrea Prado  station offers several trains from Lisbon. Bus services run by  Eva Bus  and  Rede Expressos  connect Portimao to the rest of the Algarve region.

What you need to know before you go

Closeby, the Roman ruins at Quinta da Abicada are prized for their mosaics.

Portimao is a magnet for sports fans – international competitions, including sailing, powerboating, and superbike races, liven up the town throughout the year. A must-see is the popular beach soccer tournament, known as the Little World Cup.

Around the World in Analogue: Life in the Green City, Zelenograd

Back in 1958, Zelenograd was a new town formed and planned by the Soviet Union, specialized to become the central hub of electronics, microelectronics and the computer industry, and it has become as such to this very day for Russia. Dubbed as the "Green City" in reference to the city's color and the symbolic animal, the squirrel, Zelenograd offers much more as it provides wide, open spaces where modernity and nature meet. Through the photographs of Lomographer Igor Silaev a.k.a. mahoney66 , we see a gorgeous glimpse of his life in the okrug in harmonious colors.

powerboating portimao

I think 2020 was very hard for everyone. There are various restrictions in the country. Due to some restrictions, I even had to change jobs. But it was only good because I had more free time. Thanks to this, I returned to photography!

I live in Zelenograd (Autonomous district of Moscow). Unlike the center of Moscow, it is more calm and measured, and there are a lot of trees in our city (Zelenograd literally translates as green city ). Thanks to this, you can feel a certain connection with nature here, as if you are in the village. But at the same time, some areas look like a metropolis. There is also a very unusual architecture in the style of post-Soviet modernism, it is very inspiring. That's probably why I love this city.

powerboating portimao

First of all, I love my view from the window, because there are unreal sunsets. There are also many parks and alleys in the city, and in my opinion, they are much more picturesque than parks in the center of Moscow and not so mainstream. I would recommend Victory Park (not to be confused with the Park of the same name in Moscow) and the arboretum. From the Central parks, I would recommend VDNH, there is something to see and shoot.

Next to my house there is a Tanuki restaurant, where they prepare delicious Asian food. And from the bars I would recommend Hops & Coffee, it is located next to the train station. There are many varieties of author's beer and damn fine coffee!... and hot! If we talk about the center, then be sure to visit the cafe PEOPLE as PEOPLE -- this is a pleasant place where you can eat delicious and inexpensive food.

powerboating portimao

I Advise you to come to Moscow in the middle of summer, at this time there are the most comfortable weather conditions and you can walk all day long. Visit as many attractions and parks as possible, take a ride in the Moscow metro and take as much film with you as possible because here it is much more expensive! If you still need a film, then I recommend Perspektivalab . They have a good selection of films and the price is reasonable.

I like to think about the first time I went to Sokolniki Park with my girlfriend. That day, I was terribly stung by my new sneakers, but even that didn't spoil this beautiful day. We walked all day and took a lot of pictures. If you are in Moscow, be sure to go to Sokolniki Park!
