5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

Like the majority of beaches in Portugal this one lives up to its name. It is a truly beautiful beach typical of the coastline surrounding the Algarve

Very clean beach with a selection of bars/cafes nearby. Lots of parking and a short walk to the Vilamoura Marina.

“Just Beautiful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

While I have visited the Algarve on numerous occasions over the years this was my first to Falesia Beach. I visited on a beautiful October day and it is just beautiful. It is a long sandy beach . My first view was from the rocks overhanging the beach and it was stunning.Just relax and enjoy

“Lovely beach with colourful rock walls”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

On the second day of our holiday in Algarve we walked thru' the Sheraton gardens to the hundred or so steps and lift to Falesia beach. It is a wonderful long beach with not too many people on it in October which as perfect. The colourful sandstone formations on which some hotels have there gardens are a beautiful background. The last of the sun rays make them spectacular. The beach is also well maintained.
