Beautiful unspoiled place: gorgeous long beach with great promenade from one end to the other. Easy walking in the main although there are some hills. Plenty of small locally owned restaurants and cafe bars. Suits young families and older people. Not much by way of nightlife for younger people - everything in September closed by 12 at latest. Not a music resort - more a relaxed holiday destination.

Sad the old town has been changed so that the old craft shops etc are no longer there, so not much to do of an evening. Lovely bistro in the town. Bistro 24 - highly recommended and very reasonably priced. Restaurants near the Villas seem to be much more expensive than those on the town.

We loved this resort, lots of coves and large beach, at the far end you can see all the fishing boats on the beach and watch as they come in with the catch of the day. Further along the beach you can walk along great boardwalks passing lagoons and drop off at beach-side restaurants.

A de Pera is a lovely seaside place where the Portuguese from the North holiday. Fabulous beaches and a really beautiful promenade for strolling in the evenings. Friendly and very accessible place. Great restaurants with fresh fish daily - great steaks too. Loads really good ice cream parlours/cafes. Tends to attract two main groups of people - an older crowd plus young families with babies/toddlers. Not a huge amount for those looking for a buzzing night life as places tend to close around midnight. There's a few exceptions to this! Much better food and drink at much cheaper prices than other parts of the Algarve. Literally half price compared to Albufeira.

Right on a beach, the resort is quiet and quite spread out. Easy to get a taxi home, even a 7 seater. Everyone was friendly and a nice wee market at night in the white huts. Not the nicest of the Algarve coastal villages but ok for an evening stroll or eating out. Few shops, close to Aqualand.

Please note: the comments above are the subjective opinions of customers and not of sunshine.co.uk Ltd

Beaches

The town's main beach is Praia Grande and it stretches out for over 3km which allows for plenty of space for relaxing on the fine golden sand. The sand gently slopes into the sea which makes it ideal for children. There are plenty of watersports available from the beach too.

There are 2 smaller beaches in the resort which are ideal for those who wish to escape the crowds.

Things to Do

There is plenty to see and do in this laid back fishing village. Wander through the winding streets and admire the many historical buildings such as the Main Church of Nossa Senhora dos Navegantes, the Chapel of Nossa Senhora da Rocha (Our Lady of the Rock) or the 18th century Church of St. Anthony which sits inside the remains of the 17th century fort on the waterfront.

A great way to travel around the town is the tourist train. The train stops at various points along the way and runs from 10am till 11.15pm and is approx 3 euors.

There are plenty of golf courses in Armacao and the surrounding area so if golf is your thing then you will certainly be at home here.

Out and About

There are plenty of shops here in Armacao de Pera and with 2 large shopping centres, you are bound to find what you are looking for. There are plenty of supermarkets, boutiques and the usual touristy shops so there is plenty on offer. Lisbon is just a short bus ride away and offers a bigger selection of shops and departments stores.

Many of the restaurants can be found in the old town and offer a wide variety of cuisine, from traditional to international dishes. Some seafood restaurants can also be found down at the beach area and are very reasonably priced.

There are plenty of bars in the resorts and a couple of nightclubs so plenty of options should you wish a late night. There is always entertainment in some of the hotels and there is even a casino in the resort so you will not be stuck for something to do.

If you are lucky enough to be visiting in the last weekend of July and first weekend of August, you can check out the Arraial do Petisco. The festival is held at the sportsground offers live music each night and into the early hours. You can also sample some traditional snacks and main courses and is a great night out for the whole family.

Nearby Attractions

A 20 minute drive will take you to the town of Silves, with its 15th century castle and fantastic views of the fields and citrus groves. There is also the Gothic arches cathedral and the Archaeological Museum with Iron Age relics.

If you want to combine water and animals, take a trip to Zoomarine, Portugal's only animal and marine park. There are dolphin shows, sea lion shows, water birds, birds of prey, a great aquarium and also an alligator compound. You can also take some time out and relax by the pool or have some fun on the amusement rides, whatever you choose to do, the whole family will have a great day out.

There is a big water park, Aqualand in Alcantarilha which is just a 10 minute drive away. There is a variety of water slides and attractions for the whole family to enjoy. The park is open from the end of May to the middle of September.

There is also a karting track nearby which is a replica of the Jacarepagua Formula 1 circuit in Brazil and is a whole lot of fun for all the family.
