Armacao de Pera Beach Tours

3 Reviews
Armacao de Pera Beach
With its golden sands and sandstone-carved coves, Armacao de Pera Beach epitomizes the coastal beauty of Portugal’s Algarve. Backed by a fishing village of the same name, the beach is an ideal choice for both families and sun-worshippers: umbrella-shaded sunbeds offer respite from the midday sun while the rocky coves on either side of the beach make for a fun day of exploration. 

The Basics
Departing from Armacao de Pera Beach, tours of The Algarve’s coastline will allow you to discover caves, beaches, and fishing villages by boat, bike, or foot. Families can opt for a pirate ship cruise; mountain bike tours, meanwhile, allow active travelers to go off-road and tackle steep downhill slopes. To enjoy the fishing villages and coves that surround Armacao de Pera Beach at a leisurely pace, opt for a walking tour that focuses on the history of the area. 

Things to Know Before You Go 
  • Bring plenty of sunscreen and a hat—shade is limited. 
  • You can either bring your own picnic or enjoy fresh seafood at one of the restaurants along the promenade. 
  • A must-do for families with kids and beach lovers. 

How to Get There
Armacao de Pera is located just a short drive west of Albufeira, making it and its beach an ideal day trip. From Albufeira bus station, public buses depart regularly throughout the day and run until evening. 

When to Get There 
During July and August, when schools throughout Europe are on summer vacation, the beach can become crowded—arrive early to secure your spot on the sand. Visiting the beach at sunset brings fantastic photo opportunities and cool, comfortable temperatures. 

Exploring Armacao de Pera on Foot
During the peak hours of sunshine, take a break from the beach and follow the shaded path along the coast to the headland of Nossa Senhora da Rocha. Here, the towering cliffs harbor a medieval fortress and chapel, and provide panoramic views of The Algarve coastline.
