Swim, sunbathe and enjoy the Mediterranean sunshine in Armacao de Pera. The resort is set on an arc of gold sand and immerses you in the natural beauty of the Algarve region. You’re just steps from several beaches, all with soft sand and gently rolling waves. Restaurants dot the beachfront and will tempt you with ocean-fresh seafood and ice-cold drinks.
Cobbled streets and whitewashed buildings lend historic charm to the village centre. An Algarve-style church overlooks the main square, where you’ll find cafes and ice cream shops. Enjoy sweeping sea views from Fortaleza de Armacao de Pêra, a coastal stronghold built to defend the town from pirates.
Head west to discover hidden bays and beaches surrounded by honey-coloured limestone cliffs. Don’t miss Praia da Marinha, one of the most iconic beaches in Portugal. Towering archways and sea stacks rise up from the turquoise water and give the beach a postcard-perfect feel.
Armacao de Pera is compact and easy to get around on foot. The resort is a 40-minute drive from Lagos and Faro. Taxis are the best way to travel to Armacao de Pera. Faro Airport is a one-hour drive away.
