At Armona beach you have a choice.You can swim on the lagoon shore by the pier if you wish, or explore the lagoon shore around the edge of the village out to the beach. Or you just head straight for the ocean beach. How much beach do you want ? To the left, Armona beach runs on for miles until you come to the next point of access at Fuzeta. Everywhere in between is essentially empty and it is all beautiful. If you want to sit with the umbrella crowd or do the Crusoe thing, you'll have a great day on the beach.

Access to Armona beach

Access to Armona beach is by ferry from Olhão. The ferry goes from the pier at the eastern end of the waterside gardens in Olhão. It has a fixed timetable and takes about 15 minutes to get across.

At the other side, you land at the pier (you will have to walk up steps at low tide) and you follow the concrete path through the village and onto the wooden path that leads you out to the beach. It takes about 15 or so minutes to walk.
