Great way to spend a day. Plenty of sunbeds and areas to lay towels. Not over crowded. Plenty of bars and restaurants. Golden sands and blue sea. Be careful of the water, the current is quite strong. Definitely worth a visit or two!

Typical of the praias in this area with a small cafe area before going down to the beach. I should imagine that parking is a problem during busy periods. The beach was clean and safe for families. We went to the cafe for a coffee but were disappointed to find that the toilets were out of order.

Best beach bar on Falesia Beach. Great meals, snacks and drinks. Beautiful setting on edge of this wonderful beach. Bruno is a first class host, very friendly, attentive and his English is definitely getting better. Visit regularly, love it!

This is a great beach for a long walk as it stretches on for miles and every view is a magnificent blend of the orange cliffs, blue sky and green waters.

Gorgeous sprawling beach lined with red cliffs and pine trees. A few outtlets renting beach equipment. Wooden stairs at various points along the beach leading to the top of the cliffs.

One of the nicest beaches I have ever visited, so clean, fine sand and clear waters. But beware if with small children as the currents is quiet strong as our some of the waves.

Good safe beach which is ideal for children. Plenty of sand for them to play in. The cliffs along the stretch of beach are spectacular.
