Both offer a complete day of fun. “Slide and Splash” is situated between Lagoa and Estombar, “Aqua-land” is to The east along the N -125, next to the roundabout at alcantarilha. Both parks have a free shuttle bus from Carvoeiro. A little bit further eastward you will find “Zoo-Marine” where you can even swim with dolphins…
By far the best way to visIt the caves is to make a trip direct from Carvoeiro beach or Benagil beach. you can also consider booking a full day’s cruise on one of the boats in Portimao harbour, combined with a tasty BBQ. The so-called pirate ship Santa Bernarda sails along the coast every day… You can get information about these trips and other similar possibilities at the agenCIES in the village or at the tourist information centre.
