In the older part of the town, there are a number of bars and a good selection of restaurants, many offering freshly caught fish. There are good local shops but a trip to Albufeira (11kms) or Portimao (20kms) will provide added variety.
Armaçao de Pera is situated midway along the S coast of Portugal on low-lying cliffs, 11 mls W of Albufeira, 13 mls E of Portimao, 29 mls W of Faro and the airport.
Armaçao de Pera is popular among most ages ranges and interests, families, couples and singles. Special interest groups are less catered for such as golfers and sport enthusiasts, although golf courses are available further ‘a field’. There is a long wide sandy beach here (Armaçao de Pera Beach) backed by cliffs and pebbly at water level.
