Six reasons to visit...Armacao de Pera


Beach-front restaurants in Armação de Pêra offer the freshest fish and some of the best views around. Try O Serol for uncomplicated Portuguese food and a lively atmosphere or Arte Nautica if you are looking for a more upmarket version of the classic beach restaurant with a menu to match.


Sir Cliff Richard may be known for his eternal youth and chart success throughout the decades but he is better known in this area for his involvement in the Adega do Cantor winery in Guia. The winery produces a range of reds, whites and pinks and you can see how it all comes together yourself by taking a guided tour which also includes a tasting session and the chance to purchase from the shop.


Porches is synonymous with pottery and at the aptly-named Porches Pottery on the EN-125 you can watch as the designers put the finishing touches to the pieces, making everything from napkin rings to large bespoke tile murals.

Algarve Shopping in Guia has long been the go-to shopping centre of the central Algarve, and here you are able to pick up items from the number of chain stores including Zara and Ana Sousa as well as more exclusive items from the boutiques.


There is plenty of space to unwind at the large Vila Vita Vital spa located within the grounds of Vila Vita Parc. Treatments for men, women and couples are available, while the large communal areas, including the sauna, steam baths, whirlpool, waterfall, ice room, and indoor and outdoor relaxation areas, are enough to keep you busy relaxing for hours.


You will never build a sandcastle in the same way ever again after you visit the Fiesa International Sand Sculpture Festival which is located on the road between Pera and Algoz. Each year sand sculptors from across the world come to the large park to build huge, often gravity-defying pieces all following a theme. Open from March until October


Vila Vita Parc is unrivalled in the area as a truly luxurious five-star hotel of the highest standard. The landscaped grounds hides the fact it has 167 rooms and you can drift between the amenities, including the on-site two-star Michelin restaurant, Ocean, without feeling crowded.
