This is a long and sandy beach perfect for sunbathing or swimming. Plenty of places to eat and drink. Worth visiting.

Lovely family beach. Recommend hiring a kayat so you can view close the caves and explore. Also options of jet ski s to hire but expensive. A passage through the cliff side to another beach. Bar and restaurant on the beach.

Armação is a fishing village the way it used to be. Small boats, small huts for the fishermen and lots of sea gulls waiting for their daily treats.
