Praia da Falésia is more than 6 kilometers long. It stretches from Vilamoura in the East all the way to Olhos de Água (near Albufeira) in the West. The sand on the beach is beautifully soft. The sea is clean and the water is crystal clear. Going for a swim here is very refreshing on a hot summer day. According to Tripadvisor, Praia da Falésia is one of the best beaches in the world.
About half of the beach towards the Albufeira region is protected by red and orange colored sandy cliffs, with pine trees on the top and beautiful flowers at the bottom, such as the pink spiny thrift and the white sand lilies.
