Praia de Armacao de Pera Beautiful Algarve Beach

Praia de Armacao de Pera is located in central Algarve, Portugal. There are many beaches including the one at Armacao de Pera, that seems to stretch for miles. There are plenty of outdoor eating places, shops and a promenade. It takes around half an hour to walk through the village of Pera. There are plenty of hotels and apartments on the road behind Armacao de Pera, so people can stay close to the beach. There are many access points along the beach and a ramp that runs along the beach, suitable for wheelchairs. Sunbeds can be hired at several places along the beach.

On the left side of the promenade is the remains of a 17th century fort. It contains a chapel that is dedicated to St. Anthony. The fort was made to protect the town from pirates.

Praia Grande is a lot quieter than Armacao de Pera and can be found just after the old fishing village. It has a lovely little restaurant that is very popular. Praia Grande is the next part of beach that runs from Armacao de Pera to Albufeira. Salgados and Gale beaches are in between. There is a lot of space for everyone, even in the height of summer.

Praia dos Salgados is further east and is a beautiful beach. The beach stretches for many miles and has an array of wooden walkways, as well as sand dunes. After the sand dunes is Salgados Lagoon, where birds make their home every year. It is also a breeding place for rare species. Surfers and body-boarders love this stretch of beach as it offers good waves. Praia dos Salgados offers sun, sea, lagoons and golf courses. Praia dos Salgados is situated in the Albufeira District and is famous for its beach and golf course. The lagoon is home to flamingos each spring. To reach the beach, you need to walk through a car park and then a boardwalk.
