What people say

"One of the top beaches in the world, the orange cliffs of Praia de Falésia are gorgeous. This stunning beach has 6km of wide open sand backed against impressive cliffs. You can enter the beach from a few cliffside points, and I usually head in closer to Olhos d'Agua. A few beach clubs dot the beach, but for the most part, you can find yourself a huge, uncrowded patch of sand to enjoy. "
"Located near Albufeira, Praia da Falésia stretches for several kilometres along vibrantly coloured cliffs ranging from shades of red, orange and gold. Its fine white sands merge with the turquoise waters of the ocean, creating a spectacular setting. The beach offers various amenities including restaurants, bars and sun lounger rental. "
"Strap your hat on tight for the wind! So enjoyable"
