Armacao de Pera / Quinta dos Arcos area
Armacao is a beautiful blend of old & new. The local fishermen still sell fish from their boats & the old town remains with it's cobbled streets & small restaurants. Yet there are modern blocks of apartments.However along with the modern apartments comes wide roads & modern Supermarkets.
Let's do a quick overview of the main areas of interest; more details will follow later.
Beaches. The main beach is huge. Miles of golden sands is certainly no exaggeration. So for those who want to get to the beach quickly, walk 5 mins and across the road there it is. If you want to be near bars that's no problem. If you want more seclusion then twalk east and the crowds soon thin out and disappear (off season the main beach is pretty quiet anyway). If you have a car, then about 10-15 minutes west of Armacao are a string of coves, some hidden, each with their own character. This is what is great about the Algarve, if your willing to put in a little effort, the variety of beaches is fantastic. From hidden smugglers coves to shallow green waters for snorkelling, it has it all.
Bars and Restaurants. Well there are plenty of them which is good. Fish being the main focus of most restaurants, the quality is very good, and the prices reasonable. Try as many as possible. From local run back street fish restaurants, to British owned mediterranean style, from Chinese to Indian Armacao is certainly not short of quality food. Bars tend to open more seasonally, with fewer open in the off season. There are so many restaurants open even in Winter . Restaurants are obliged by law to offer "A meal of the Day" However in Armacao many restaurants offer a "Tourist Menu", 3 courses with wine, coffee & brandy for â‚¬10-12.
Sports , Golf & Bowls
Of course the Algarve is famous for its many Golf Courses & there are so many close to Armacao.Silves 10 mins, Salgados 10 mins, Vilamoura & Penina about 30 minutes drive away, and now 5 minutes from the luxury Amendoeira golf resort with two championship courses design by Nick Faldo & Christie O'Connor opened in 2008.Possibly the newest & largest golf resort in Europe . Both O'Connor & Faldo courses . And the 1st Crown Green Bowling Club in the Iberian Peninsula. Also Flat Green Lawn Bowls.
For the Children
If the beautiful beach is not enough ,other leisure activities include Zoomarine with its various shows, eateries and childen's rides. There are two water slide parks, 'The Big One' near Porches is about 10 mins drive and 'Slide and Splash' in Lagoa is just 15 mins away. The sand sculpture exhibition situated behind Pera is 10 mins away....Read more

There are no negatives about this luxurious apartment... It's very modern, well equipped and ultra cool! From the security of the keypad entry to the block to the safe, the UK cable tv to air conditioning and patio doors from kitchen and living room, huge terrace and separate rooftop pool with fantastic views, we were in rental heaven for the week! Owner Kathy was so pleasant to deal with and no delays with confirmation or return of deposit. Apartment key holder Sonja went above and beyond her call of duty!! All in all a top standard stay! Our first time to the area and we were really pleased with ourselves - beach is down the road and promenade restaurants and coffee shops are a delight. Our suggestion would be to go to end of promenade and follow the windy streets into the old town... Fish and chicken piri-piri dishes on every menu and all first class... Final words... We'll be back
