nice beach, it gets a nittle narrow when the tide rises and the guys on the beach make sure you do not use the cabanas or the beach on the cabanas side.

The cliffs formations are breath-taking with all their different colours, and the beach is just heaven. Walking at the edge of the beach with the waves lapping over your feet & ankles - it just so pleasurable! You can walk for hours, take a dip...More

Beautifully clean sand and clear blue water. Steps down to the beach are very well thought out with resting places.

Amazing blue flag beach. Very clean, sun beds for hire, lifeguards on duty. Beach bar with great views. Attached to the Alfamar hotel showers and toilets available too. Great place to spend the day

make a walk to Vilamoura from the Epic Sana Hotel via the beach ... and back. You will like it. 90 Minutes to reach the Marina. The beach is extremely clean and the water is beautifull, and not too cold.

Absolutely my favourite beach. Waves weren't big enough for my crazy daughter. Looong sandy beach with nice rock formations, a couple of places to buy food/drink. Quite a few beach sellers (flogging hats, sunnies etc) but they didn't bother anyone.

Falesia gives you the chance to walk along the shore or settle on the sand bank to take in the sun. Early morning during winter is a great time for dog walking but keep them clear of the fishermen. Nearer the cliffs is scrubland and...More

The nearby Falesia beach is miles long and very deep when tide is out so there should be plenty of room, although we haven't been in August. Albufeira is much more crowded anyway, even out of season. Hotel has shuttle bus... More
