From this dreamer sea, the gentle sea from the south.

About the Beach

What is Praia de Armação de Pêra Beach?

Lifeguarded Beach from to
5184000
days for the end of bathing season

It's an Oceanic Beach in the northern hemisphere bathed by the Atlantic Ocean, located on the coast of Portugal - Iberian Peninsula - in the municipality of Silves.

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.
