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

The beaches of Algarve are very nice. They have a distinctive red color in the rocks which looks even more impressive during sunset. The beaches are crowded during high season. At Falesia you can rent a chair with umbrella or even get a massage.

Miles of sand to explore. This beach runs all the way to Vilamoura. Walk in the opposite direction when the tide is out and you will come to the centre of Olhas de Aga. Carry on further (tides allowing) and you reach my favourite beach, the Maria Luisa beach. Bliss.

Just returned from a weeks holiday at a nearby hotel the Adriana. We found Quebra Coco quite by accident taking a stroll along the beach and we stopped for a drink, which turned into several as we sat and watched the sun disappear over the horizon. The view from the bar terrace is great. By the end of our stay... More
