IDEAL FAMILIES & COUPLES

Good value on a great beach

Armacao de Pera Algarve

Set on a broad bay the long stretch of golden sand is particularly appealing to holiday makers.  Near the fort you will find cobbled streets with a variety of shops, cafes and restaurants, this is one of the prettiest parts of Armacao.

If you also visit the old village you will find more restaurants and cafes along the seafront many offering fresh caught fish.

We off the Holiday Inn here and it has an enviable position on the seafront and is very good value for money. 

What to do

Other than the major appeal of the beautiful beach and the water sports available there are many opportunities in and around Armacao.  There are several golf courses nearby, more beaches, a diving club, a water park, Krazy World is a small zoo with a petting farm and pony rides for the younger children and there is a karting complex nearby too. Only 15 minutes from Albufeira where there are also plenty of activities on offer.

Days out 

Day trips from here could include wine tours, explore the historical sites, there is the Fiesa – sand sculpture festival held in Pera open May to October, the Salgados Nature Reserve – great for walkers, or just self drive the area.  If you go west the coast boasts caves and interesting rock formations (best done by boat).  Boat trips are offered from the Fishermans Beach.
