So we had a tent and spent an amazing autumn night on this beach. I'd say it's quite private, people rarely were passing by.

Visiting Faro and my couchsurfing host took me here. absolutely amazing scenery. Not accessible without car I think...the entire Algarve region requires a car to be fully enjoyed.

Nice and clean beach. You can take a nice walk along the beach enjoying the view. Sit back and relax and soak in the sun. Nice day out to go swimming in the sea. Nice to get out of hotel pool and go to the sea.

Praia da Falesia is part of a great long stretch of beach between Olhos de Agua and Vilamoura with picturesque colourful veined sandy Cliffs as the backdrop. We have never been in the actual busy tourist months but I would imagine this stretch of beach would cope with a multitude of tourists, fortunately in the month of November when the... More

Park your car and take in the views. Then head down the many stairs to the beach. Beautiful and breathtaking. Even in winter sun, stunning.

Quieter than the Praia dos Pescadores in Albufeira, with clean sands and less crowd. We even saw dolphins swimming in pairs in the distance.

Really beautiful beach, you can walk to Vilamoura within the hour. However, Praia de Felicia itself is basic in it's offering unless you are staying at the wonderful Epic Sana Hotel.
