Praia da Falesia, Albufeira

#1 of 1,790 in Outdoors in Portugal
Must see · Beach · Nature / Park
Walk for hours below beautiful cliffs along the sandy shores of Praia da Falesia, popular among tourists for its dramatic backdrop. The beach is named for its gouged, red cliffs, which act as a blockade for troublesome winds that could ruin a good day in the sun. While the cliffs are rugged, the shoreline is calm and flat, and therefore good for playing or taking a long walk.

  • A section of a larger beach. Although the cliffs are high in this section, the beach access is very easy - for those staying in the Alfamar hotel is just 50 meters of walk. With the low tide the width is good. Good beach services.
