Benagil Sea Cave Algarve Portugal


The Algarve region of Portugal is home to some of the country's most well-known beaches. In part that's because of the sea caves which can be found along the Algarve coast, particularly on the southern (Bay of Biscay) side.  The caves are formed from the unique combination of soil composition and wave-erosion patterns to be found in southern Portugal.  In this drone video by Tech Drone Media, you'll get a great aerial view of one of these caves.  It's near the village of Benagil, in the town of Lagoa.

Here's a fantastic aerial view of one of the natural and cultural wonders of Portugal.  Sagres is a town which lies at the tip of a peninsula in the southwestern corner of the Algarve region.  It is, quite literally the southwesternmost spot of the European mainland.  Now known primarily as a tourist desination and a top surfing spot, the area played a key role in the process by which this small country on the Iberian Peninsula came to assemble one of the greatest empires in the world beginning in the 15th century.
