Ilha de Armona, Olhao

4.6
#4 of 10 in Outdoors in Olhao
Armona Island is one of the islands of Algarve, Portugal. Armona is 9km in length, and from 0.1to wide. It is accessible by regular 20-minute Ferry trips or even quicker water taxi from the waterfront in Olhão. The island is populated with a large number of beach houses and a half a dozen cafe bars. The main beach on the Atlantic side of the island is pristine and uncrowded, making it a popular daytrip destination for tourists staying in Olhão itself. The port is a very popular place in the summer when the locals and holiday makers dive/jump off it into the sea.

    A little paradise on Earth especially in low tide. Great beaches of white sand, calm and with a few bravo bars. On the other hand, if we want this peace he must walk between 20 and 25 minutes by crossing the few houses of the inhabitants. But frankly it's really worth with in more more hot water. FYI the boats leave hourly to the half.

  • We have been coming to Armona Island for 9 years, and although the island is laid back there is always something new to discover and friends to be made.
  • 15 mins from Olhão City by Ferry, and you're in Paradise, good restaurants/bar's everywhere! 👍✌❤😎
  • Quaint village with amazing beach! Strong waves though!
  • Wonderful island, we spent a day wandering around the island. Beautiful small cottages and a fabulous sandy beach out to sea
