(4.6/5 based on 150+ reviews on the web)
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.
