Armacao de Pera is at its busiest and best from spring until autumn. Temperatures reach the high 20s and into the low 30s on most days throughout this period making it a very reliable destination to visit in that sense. Prices tend to be slightly cheaper outside of these months from autumn to spring. However, with most of the tourist facilities closed or with reduced hours, you may find that there is significantly less to do in this resort at this time of year. Because of its luscious beach area as well, we definitely recommend a trip during the summer.
There is an abundance of incredible things to do in Armacao de Pera and it is a bit of an outdoor lover’s paradise. As well as the beautiful beaches, there are a number of excursions to take part in. One of those involves kayaking in and around the region’s natural caves and others include trips along the coastline and water sports such as wakeboarding. If you want to see some history of the region, we recommend that you visit the headland of Nossa Senhora da Rocha. Here you will find a medieval fortress and chapel, both of which boast spectacular views along the coastline.
