Praia da Falésia beach is more than six kilometres long, stretching from Vilamoura in the west to Olhos do Agua in the east. This beautiful long, expanse of golden sands is surrounded by red and white cliffs, contrasting with green pines, making this one of the most unforgettable beaches in the Algarve.
The eastern side of the beach is called Alfamar and the cliffs are lower here than on the western side. The waters are very shallow, making it a favourite for families with small children, and can get quite busy during the summer months. However, due to its size, you can always find a nice quiet spot to set up your sunbed and umbrella and relax away from the hustle and bustle. On this part of Praia da Falésia beach, there are all sorts of water sports to try, including paragliding, diving and a surfing school. You can also find excellent beach restaurants and bars here.
In the evening, Praia da Falésia is an ideal place to take a leisurely walk along the beach, and is particularly beautiful at sunset.
