The property is situated on a small beautiful island called Armona in the Algarve, Portugal. Part of the Ria Formosa Natural Park

The nearest airport is Faro from there its a short taxi ride to the coastal fishing village Olhao where their are regular ferries that take you across to the tranquil island. Olhao is a beautiful town with many bars and restaurants and daily markets

Armona has some of the finest beaches in the Algarve. The main beach is very safe for swimming and plenty of fun.The Atlantic beach on the far side of the island stretches as far as the eye can see with pure white sand. On the island there are two main shops and a couple of smaller fruit and vegetable stores. Everything is fresh and locally grown, you can buy fresh fish and sample the famous clams in one of the five restaurants.

A short stroll takes you to Beachcomer,this property is in an ideal location for families with children as minutes from all the cafes,bars and amenities and set just back from the beach. Although everything is under two minutes away the location is very quiet. Armona has no cars or bikes the only transport used are carts to get the produce from the ferry to the restaurants of which there are five during the high season,all offering excellent Portuguese food at an incredibly reasonable price, and the local beer sagres for one euro a bottle is a great thirst quencher after a relaxing lazy day on the beach. Kayaks are available for hire for the more adventurous and various sea tours can be taken from the island including swimming with dolphins.

If you're looking for a truly Portuguese experience,amazing beaches,great food,incredible sunsets,and a family friendly place then this island is for you!

The Algarve region

The Algarve is famous for guaranteed sun and wonderful beaches. The Ria Formosa is a protected NaturalPark full of amazing wildlife and flora. For example Europe's largest seahorse colony can be found there. East Algarve remains very Portuguese. Olhao is a working fishing town of 10,000 people. The historic centre has beautiful mosaic streets with many cafes and bar and a daily fish, meat and vegetable market. Tavira is a short drive or train ride away and Seville is only 90 minutes.

Armona Island

A fifteen minute ferry ride from Olhao is Armona. In high season the ferry runs hourly. Armona Island is a car-free island. Guaranteed sun and beautiful beaches make it a truly relaxing holiday. There are four bar restaurants at the bottom of the island one in the middle and one at the top. From top to bottom is a fifteen minute walk. The beach stretches for for miles along the west side of the island. The sea is warm and there are plenty of spots away form the crowd. The front beach is cordoned off and has life-gaurds. It is very safe.
