What people are saying about Armação de Pêra
We done the kayaking in the morning, I think as the sea was expected to become choppy later in the day. It was tiring, but we got to stop off on a small beach and have a swim before carrying on back to the coast. We was provided with bottled water whilst out, and the instructor was very helpful. We then had an hour or so to walk along the marina/have lunch. There are a lot of places to eat at, all providing a variety of different dishes at surprisingly good prices for their location! I would recommend 6° Paragrafo. Our mountain tour was lovely. This was done by Zebra Safari Tours. We was taken to local areas and our guide (Gil) was very informative. He had a real passion for the area and gave lots of information, (as well as stopping off and giving us a taste of many of the delicious fruits currently growing). A slightly bumpy ride, but definitely worth it if you are in the local area!
The dolphin show was so good, and very moving. The beach and pools looked great, however the water was so cold that we could not go in, even the baby pool was freezing! To top it off, you have to pay 15 euros to have a sun lounger and also pay for lockers which doesn't get refunded. It was such a shame as the dolphins show was great and the Halloween theme was also good. Also you cannot bring a buggy into the pool area as you are forced to walk through an automatic shower before entering which completely soaks you and is also freezing! Top tip for this, the wooden part activates the shower, so if you're quick you can wait for it to stop, stand on the white part (which is small, not big enough for buggy!) and run through afterwards.
The place is lovely and wonderful all the animals are a wonderful site to see loved all the shows with them in, I recommend getting pictures with the dolphins and other animals over the dolphin emotions stuff as dolphin emotions is around €300 or more
I can hardly think of any other better way of spending the day and that money. You learn a lot at the same time have a lot of fun. Just brilliant.
Highly recommend trip as we saw real Portuguese life experiences in Faro region. Great kayaking in caves. Ask for Luis to be your guide.
