The beaches in Armação de Pêra extend from Praia dos Pescadores (the Fisherman’s Beach) to the Salomão Beach. As well as being both beautiful and clean, the beaches here also hold a unique local charm. There is no designated harbour in Armação de Pêra, which means that fisherman will often pull their boats right up on the sand! The fishermen’s use of these beaches has resulted colourful huts popping up on the shore, and a collection of fishing stores along many of the promenades in the area.
Some of our favourite beaches in Armação de Pêra are:
This spacious, blue-flag beach is the perfect choice not only for people looking to stretch out on one of the sun lounges available to rent, but also for anyone interested in birdwatching! The lagoon and marshland surrounding the beach are often visited by red herons, black terns, spoonbills, and flamingos.
Surrounded by high cliffs that protect it from the wind, the Praia de Nossa Senhora da Rocha is small beach to the west of Armação de Pêra. This beach is a popular spot for fishermen who will leave their boats on the end of the beach. Facilities here include public toilets and showers, a lifeguard on duty, and a restaurant near the promenade.
Stretching out in front of many of the top hotels in the area, is the eponymous Praia de Armação de Pêra. This vast, sandy beach is popular with tourists and locals alike, with a range of cafés an restaurants on and above the beach, pedalos and sun loungers to rent, a lifeguard on duty during the high season, and a number of water sports available when the weather is good.
Every March, local and international artists descend on Armação de Pêra to take part in the FIESA International Sand Art Festival. Over the course of the festival, the artists involved create intricate sand sculptures which can reach several feel tall, and the biggest of which can remain on the beach for months after the festival has come to an end. As a visitor, you can watch the artists at work, explore the finished pieces, and take part in any of the workshops and demonstrations on offer.
A mere 10 minute drive outside of the Armaçã resort centre is the incredible Aqualand Algarve. This popular water park is home to the highest water slide in Portugal, a river rapid run, a surf beach area with a wave pool, a kid zone, and a semi-Olympic sized swimming pool. The park is open from June to September, with tickets available to purchase online.
