“Glorious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014

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

“Fabulous beach”

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.

“Lovely beach with loads of space”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2014

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.).

“Stunning beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2014

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 snack bar on site with washrooms as well. There's not a lot of space to park on site but you can probably find a place nearby, within a few minutes walking distance. I would suggest the public parking lot at the entrance of the street that leads to the beach. You'll have to walk uphill but it's very manageable. Definitely worth spending a day (or two ... or three ...) at this beach.
