For a great family holiday, the Algarve resort of Armacao will tick all the boxes. Play and relax on some of the longest beaches in Portugal during your trip to Armacao. Picture long days spent working on your tan, while the kids splash around the sea. You can even ride aboard the banana boat together and fall into the sea during high-octane rides. Kids will also love the range of theme parks on Armacao’s doorstep. There’s a couple of waterparks where they can plummet down the slides and wildlife parks where you can get up close and personal with a host of animals.

It’s not just families who will love a holiday to Armacao. It’s also a popular destination for couples and older holidaymakers. If you’ve packed the clubs on your easyJet flight to the Algarve, then there are two golf courses on the outskirts of Armacao. The views from the greens are spectacular. Those holidaymakers who enjoy a gentle stroll can wander through Armacao’s pretty old town area. It’s often missed by tourists, but there are historic and cute buildings to take a look at here. When the sun sets, it’s also the perfect place for a nice glass of local wine. 

Armacao’s location is also excellent for exploring the rest of the Algarve. Whether you hire a car or flag down a taxi, there’s plenty to see nearby. Visit the inland town of Silves if you want to see more of Portugal’s culture and history, or head to Guia’s huge shopping centre to snag a souvenir.

Top Armacao resorts

Carvoeiro

Get a different view of beach life by visiting the popular coastal resort of Carvoeiro. It’s a great spot for watersports, with jet-skiing and kayaking among the activities on offer. You can also hop aboard a boat ride to get a tour of the nooks, crannies and caves along the coastline. After dark, Carvoeiro is a good place for a boogie. It’s a vibrant night spot with restaurants, bars, clubs and even casinos dotted around the town.

Guia

Many celebs own villas in the small and exclusive village of Guia. It’s a quaint, traditional place with old-fashioned tavernas along the main road and old town area. However, one of the main reasons why holidaymakers visit Guia is to get themselves a souvenir. There’s a huge shopping centre on the outskirts of the village, where you’ll find plenty of familiar brands.

Silves

You can really escape the tourist trail and travel back in time to a traditional Portuguese town by visiting nearby Silves. There’s a fascinating Moorish castle to explore in Silves, along with walks alongside the scenic Arade River. You can even hop aboard a riverboat tour and get a different perspective on Silves. If you want to take things a little easier, then take a pew in one of the riverside cafes and watch the world go by over an ice cream.

Things to Do in Armacao

Exploring Armacao...

Theme parks

Two of the Algarve’s most popular family attractions are within easy reach of Armacao. Exotic birds, dolphins and alligators are among the sights at the Zoomarine wildlife park. There are shows, attractions and a 4D cinema here to keep the kids entertained. If you fancy something a little more high-octane, there’s rides and slides to enjoy at the Aqualand water park. 

Golf

Many holidaymakers pick the Algarve for its outstanding golf courses and Armacao is no different. There’s two courses on the outskirts of Armacao. The most scenic one is the Salgados links course. The holes here are not among the longest that you’ll encounter, but it’s a challenging round due to the water hazards of the sea and several lakes.

Explore the old town

At the far east of Armacao, the old town area is one of the most interesting places for a stroll. On the beachfront, there are the remains of a 17th-century fort, built to defend the village from pirate raids. You’ll get great views across the whole bay from here. As you wander the cobbled streets downhill from the fort, there’s shops, bars and restaurants to take a look at.

Beaches

There’s loads of sun loungers on the main beach in Armacao where you can relax and work on your tan. When you’re feeling peckish, walk a few yards to one of the beachside restaurants and bars. On the western side of the beach, there’s rocks and caves to explore. These are particularly good when the tide is out and you can spot crabs crawling through the rock pools.

Food and drink in Armacao

Algarve cuisine

The most famous dish from these parts is Piri-Piri chicken and there are restaurants all over the place serving this spicy treat. The chicken is marinated in a hot, spicy sauce and then slowly roasted. Another of the local favourites is cataplanas - a dish similar to a paella, packed with king prawns, calamari, scallops and more. Seafood fans will love it, as they will many of the dishes in the Algarve. Fish and seafood play a prominent part in the menu. Even better, it’s very reasonably priced.

Restaurants in Armacao

Armacao was historically a fishing port and there’s still a few boats operating here. That legacy has seen seafood restaurants become the most common eatery in Armacao, most of which are dotted along the seafront. They’re generally very good and very cheap.
