Summary of the Beach Inspectors

The sandy beach of Praia da Falésia is six kilometres long in total and made up of two sections: Alfamar and Açoteias. It is a popular destination for family holidays and is characterised by its striking backdrop of grey and red rocks. The soft sand, the relatively gentle slope into the Atlantic and the sun loungers and a small snack bar provide all you need for relaxing by the sea.

Praia da Falésia Açoteias - Vast sandy beach with tall cliffs

Tall rock faces, shimmering alternately grey and red, shelve gently down to the soft sand on the large beach of Praia da Falésia, shaping the landscape of this rugged part of the coastline. There are lots of colourful sun umbrellas and beach towels lined up in front of them in peak season, when a large number of tourists come here to relax in the sun.

The vast beach of Praia da Falésia spreads out along the south coast of the Algarve and lies ten kilometres from Albufeira. The route is well signposted, but the car park is very small. A set of steps leads down from the clifftop to the beach. The long strip of sand, which stretches over a total length of six kilometres, is divided into two sections: Praia da Falésia Alfamar and Praia da Falésia Açoteias. A few hotels and holiday apartments can be found in the surrounding area.

The vast majority of visitors are families, but lots of young couples come here as well. At high tide the area of sand narrows, but there is still plenty of space for sun loungers and beach towels. If the hustle and bustle in some parts of the beach gets too much, you usually only need to walk a short distance to get to a quieter section. By the car park you'll find a small snack bar, and occasionally, a stand where you can buy clothes and beach equipment.
