Praia da Falésia – When to visit
When to visit
Praia da Falésia can be visited all year round. The beach is especially wonderful at sunrise and sunset. We recommend you to enjoy both experiences, as the beach looks completely different in the morning compared to the evening.
During summer it is quite a popular place and can get pretty crowded during the day. In the evening it is more peaceful. However, because of the vast size of the beach, there are always more quiet areas to be found, even in the summer.
This requires a bit of a walk through. In summer it can also get very hot, so don’t forget to bring or rent a sun umbrella, especially if you have children.
In Praia da Falésia you can find some superb restaurants near the beach. Many of them are located close to the town of Olhos de Agua. Here are some options for you:
