Senhora da Rocha chapel
A picture-perfect fantasy wedding chapel - that's what awaits you at Senhora da Rocha. A simple white-washed building, the chapel is perched atop the cliffs overlooking the vast ocean and golden sands of cove beaches, with colourful fishing boats bobbing in the translucent waters below. Simply gorgeous, decorated with iconic Portuguese azulejos, the chapel is one of the most popular spots for weddings in the Algarve.
As an added bonus, it is very close to Vila Vita Parc, one of the best resorts in the region.
Benagil Sea Cave
If you're looking for an out-of-the-box idea to add to your whole wedding experience, how's this for an unconventional location - a secret sea cave, accessible only by boat!
The Benagil Sea Cave is probably the Algarve's most iconic cave. It offers amazing natural beauty and it's just a short boat ride from the beach at Benagil, a small typically Portuguese village between Carvoeiro and Armação de Pêra
The cave is a massive dome-shaped hollow with a large opening at the top, set on a smooth golden beach. The cave is lined with layers of sedimentary limestone that has built up over millions of years. The sun streams through the cave's opening, while the ocean flows in through the cave's two mouths, creating a magical grotto, a magnificent and truly memorable romantic setting.
Getting to the cave can be as stylish or as unusual as you want it to be by yacht, catamaran, speedboat or even kayak.
Note: a victim of its own popularity, it is not permitted for boats to drop people off in the Benagil cave, and access by SUP and kayaks is frequently restricted.
However, it is an amazing place to see and you should add a boat trip to your wedding fun plans. A day at sea, and a beach BBQ is perfect for the Day After party.
