Praia de Armação de Pêra Beach, also known as Praia de Pêra de Santo António Beach, has a very extensive sand of about 1,6 Km. It was called so because of the several fishing boats that formerly used fishing frames1 for fishing. This was a common practice until the year of 1905.
At west, the 2 mixes with the gentle sea waters.
At the the mid section, near the beach, there's a garden (where once was the well known Minigolfe) and the 3. The emblematic 4 arises nearby.
At east, the sand known as Praia dos Barcos Beach or Praia dos Pescadores Beach5, presents us with a large amalgam of small traditional fishing boats. Its eastern end, right beside the 6 is called Praia de Armação de Pêra (East) Beach.
In the sea, lies the biggest natural coral reef of with a length of more than seven nautical miles and depths ranging from fourteen to twenty two meters.
This is a highly crowded beach during summer season.
