Praia da Falesia is a 6 km sandy beach located between the towns of Albufeira and Vilamoura. There is a car park at the top of the cliffs overlooking the steps leading down to the beach. A day on the Praia da Falesia can seem almost lonely, even in August, as the bathers are scattered over a wide area. There are several restaurants nearby, a playground for children and a variety of other sport and leisure facilities. Praia da Falesia owes its nondescript appearance to a lack of planned development. Essentially, the resort consists of a few back roads that have linked up because of the slow emergence of private complexes in the area. The main access road is lined with a small selection of restaurants, bars and shops with residential properties built above. The various complexes stand in their own grounds and tend not to mix with their residential surroundings. There is a mixture of middle- to upmarket properties, with the emphasis on sports.
Albufeira is easy to get to if you fancy something a bit more lively in the evening; a taxi from the nearby taxi rank should cost approximately 10 Euros.
There are also regular buses to various resorts along the coast.
Faro airport is approximately 30km away, usually taking 30 minutes by car.
Other great options to make the most of your holiday are:
There are a range of boat trips from the marinas at both Albufeira and Vilamoura, heading off to view the stunning coastline of the Algarve with its spectacular white cliffs, amazing rock formations and hidden caves. Dolphin-spotting trips, reef and big game fishing excursions are also available.
The region has a number of scenic walking paths, which lead along the coast affording spectacular views across the sea. Head out into the Algarvean countryside through the pine forests, lush woodlands and past local farms, and visit the nearby villages of Olhos d'Agua and Acoteias.
Local coastal paths, off-road tracks and country trails around Praia da Falesia can be explored by mountain bike. Organized rides for all levels of experience are available too.
The neighbouring towns of Vilamoura and Albufeira are well worth a visit. Albufeira with its old churches, villages and narrow cobbled streets make a picturesque day away from the beach. You could even visit the capital, Faro, or the market town of Loule. If you have not rented a car, there are easy access excursions.
