I'm writing this review after one of the best beach-day i've had since I remember. No wind, good temperature, sunny day, water perfect... like i say in the title, no words. Plenty of room to play beach-tennis, plenty of space to walk to Olhos de água or Vilamoura if you're in a sportive mood. I'm Portuguese and I know plenty... More

A beautiful and clean beach. We went at the end of June and it was not too busy. Only low point was the expensive cost to hire a sunbed with umbrella.

Lovely beach with loads of space to move. Walk up the square 5/10 mins from the beach for an ice cream and some shade in the seats in the square

We have been to a fair few beach resorts including the Caribbean and I can honestly say that this is the most beautiful beach we have had the pleasure of walking along.

Although you have to overcome a substantial hurdle (you have to go down a steep hill and some cranky wooden stairs), the reward is more than worth it. Falesia beach is spacious, which means that you're not forced to sit at two centimeters of your neighbours. Good facilities as well (toilets etc.).

With its soft golden sand and nice waves, this beach will keep every kid happy and busy for a while. You can take long walks in both directions as the beach stretches for many kilometers. With the red cliffs right by the beach this place is yet another of the natural beauties the Algarve has to offer. There's a little... More

Having travelled Spain, Italy, Greece,Turkey and Portugal this is the best beach we have found. However, I do not mean the bit listed here in Albufeira. This beach is many kilometres long and the further you walk towards Vilamoura, the quieter it gets and the better, too. And if you go there in Vilamoura (and it is not high season)... More
