Best Beach of Algarve – Praia da Falesia

Praia da Falesia is one of the best and the longest beaches of Algarve. The beach has a deserted look and offers plenty of privacy. People seem scattered and there seems to be plenty of private space for everyone. The cliff overlooks the beach and the views are magnificent. Red hues, golden sand, intensely blue waters and the glitter of the sun add to the magic of Praia da Falesia. The marina of Vilamoura is to the west of the beach and Albufeira is to the east. Lifeguards protect this beach. Hence, it is safe for children to play.

Service charges are not accounted in hotels and restaurants. Tip taxi drivers and waiters at least 10% of the amount as a gesture of appreciation. Be properly attired while visiting religious places. Buy a phrase book to converse with locals though most Portuguese speak English and French.
