Pedras de Armação

Dive the Algarve with SUBNAUTAA large submersed block of stone situated at the entrance to the Armação de Pêra bay. This huge rock, split in various places by the action of erosion, provides numerous diving locations, almost always with conditions of good visibility.

There are places where the stone ends in a wall of two to three meters in height, reaching down to a sandy bottom, and where various types of crustaceans can be seen, such as crabs, lobsters and small prawns on the tops and ceilings of larger holes.

Dives can be carried out at greater or lesser depths, since the top of the wall varies from 14 to 16 meters and the bottom between 15 and 22 meters.

All along the rock, it is possible to see bream, zebra seabream, hog fish, and other species. The top is covered with algae which shelter various nudibranch in the fissures, and it is common to see conger and moray eels.

In the majority of the sites with depths around 20 meters, there are tunnels between the rocks which can be explored, and which are ideal for environmental photography, on days when there is good visibility and provided the sand on the sea bottom is not stirred up.
