Praia Da Falesia - Review
The Praia da Falesia, a magnificent 8-kilometre-long beach, boasts of golden sands, transparent waters and a rolling sky marking the horizon, in uncanny resemblance of the generic escapist postcard. A relaxing getaway, this beach is fringed with spectacular orange-red cliffs (from which it gets its name, ‘falesia’ meaning cliffs) and comes with poignant sunset.
Clean and impressively spacious, rest assured that the expensive sunbed you will be tempted to rent will enjoy its own luxurious space and won’t be packed in to the next one. We suggest that you park outside in the public parking lot at the entrance of the street that leads to the Praia da Falesia. From here, descend from the cliff and over the wooden bridge to reward yourself with the views this beach offers.
Lifeguards are scattered along the length of the beach and it doesn’t generally get too crowded. For the adventurous, boat excursions and facilities for watersports are available from Vilamoura and Albufeira at either end of the beach that include scuba diving, windsurfing and water skiing. Vilamoura also has some of the best championship golf courses.
There's plenty of little snack bars dotted along the length of the beach, where you can get some rest and enjoy a beer overlooking the North Atlantic Ocean.
Praia Da Falesia Information
- Carry sunblock and bottled water as there are bound to be a lot of long walks and frolicking in the sea.
- The washrooms at the snack bars are pretty clean.
- Wear comfortable footwear so you can explore the rock-pools and charming little coves along the beach.
- This is a great beach for running, sunbathing, swimming and spending some time with the family, but not too well-suited to snorkelling because of the fine, golden sand and lack of significant sea life.
- You can catch a bus to the beach by booking tickets at any local bus ticket shop at a flat fare of EUR 1.40, while a tourist day ticket is EUR 4.

Praia Da Falesia, Albufeira Reviews
This is a fabulous beach , as it’s out of season there’s loads of space. The sun beds are 750 each and the steps down to the beach are many but it’s so worth it. There’s a cafe at the top and they serve basics and have toilets . We have spent some great days here with ac3:5 year old who lives collecting treasures from The beach ! Well worth a visit
Stunning beach with a beautiful back drop of red cliffs. Very family oriented. Able to walk for miles! However, if you like uncrowded places then this isn't for you as the area is absolutely packed. I would suggest coming in September rather than July or August.
This is a public beach. There are life guards operational at certain times. A small bar serves food and drinks. The cliff side is very picturesque. You can get to the edge at the top at the start of the road. There doesn't seem to be any shoreing so be careful and during heavy rains use caution when approaching the edge.
Falesia beach has good parking facilities, food options and a very well laid path to the beach. It's a good place to spend the whole day even if you don't plan to be in water the entire time. There are many small shops and restaurants.
Beautiful picturesque beach that stretches on for a couple of miles. Very popular with locals and tourists. The cliffs are so colourful and uniquely etched with the changing climates. Certainly worth a visit. Walking to the left you will eventually arrive at the Vilamoura Marina where there are a few restaurants to grab lunch or a quick snack. Lovely!
