Delighted beachgoers watch as dolphins swim along Armação de Pêra beach

Lucky beachgoers enjoyed a sighting of around 15 dolphins at Armação de Pêra beach last Saturday.

A two-minute video posted on YouTube shows a number of dolphins swimming along the coast as several impressed beachgoers watch.

Dolphin sightings are common in the Algarve further out at sea but seeing them so close to the coast is much rarer.
