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.

Great beach very clean and goes on for miles and mikes. The cliffs formations look false as they are so formed and sculpted. Really very interesting and worth a trip

This beach is very flat and you can walk for miles! We have regularly walked from Falesia to Vilamoura! The beach is lovely and sandy and gets busy in the summer but there is always room to walk. There are numerous bars along the beach for lunch, or just coffee and beer stops! Along with Gale Beach my top 2... More

Whilst staying in a quiet area of Albufeira in March & April earlier this year, I walked the 6 or 7 miles (in flip flops.....painful) to Falesia beach, not knowing it was such a long walk! Although my feet were severely cut because of the lack of appropriate footwear, the views I encountered were just incredible ( & I consider... More
