What are ´hanging valleys` ?

The ´hanging valleys` are eroded shapes in the soft limestone rocks caused by streams and rivers that find their way towards the beaches near the coastline. The rain carves out the coastline and creates small ´hanging` valleys. Benagil beach is one of them and you pass here around lunchtime.
