Full description
The tour will start at the magnificent Carvalho beach. A small beach totally surrounded and protected by its limestone cliffs where the access is through a tunnel carved by the older generations of the area. From there, you will get your stand up paddle board and depart on an unforgettable ride with a guide. First, you'll see the most breathtaking caves, “algars” and natural formations always with one of our guides taking the lead, making sure that everybody is safe and having the most fun. You'll see around 10 caves and during the experience and enter in about 5! We drop off inside at the most famous cave of Portugal, the “Algar” of Benagil. There, you’re gonna have the chance to feel its mighty energy and relax. Gopro10 photos will be taken and delivered to you We intend to take small groups on our tours (maximum 10 people), so we can develop a closer relation with you and make sure that everyone has the attention that is needed. Additionally, we will get away from the typical confusion of the high season by doing a route that is way calmer and most of the people don’t know about. One of the main goals is to give you a calm, fun and relaxing experience so you won’t forget Algarve and the BrotheRootz spirit and way of living. We will finish our journey, once again, at Carvalho beach.

We loved our sunrise tour! The beauty of the sea and the cliffs is astounding and it was well worth it to get up early to beat the heat, the boats and the crowds at the caves. We got to see several caves, many sea creatures, and hear the history and ecology of the formation and erosion of the surrounding cliffs and caves. Egas was a wonderful guide and the Brotherootz group is perfect if you are looking for a smaller more personable tour. Highly recommend this outing!

The supping was a very nice experience. We were lucky enough to be alone with the instructor (2 participants). This makes for a very personal experience. What was very unfortunate is that the paddle broke during the trip. The paddle fell off the "stick" into the water and sank. For this, 50 euros was charged, which had to be paid in cash on the spot. This is certainly not neat, as it comes here from faulty material and not from misuse.
