Praia da Falésia Beach
The longest stretch of golden sand beach in all of Portugal, Praia da Falésia is renowned for its stunning amber-red sandstone cliffs rising majestically from translucent blue Atlantic waters. With a pine tree forest crowning magnificent cliff-tops serving as a backdrop, guests relax on complimentary sun beds along a private beach from April through September. Beach service from the hotel's Beach Club restaurant offers a variety of fresh salads and seafood dishes, as well as refreshing drinks and a delicious selection of ice creams. Live entertainment is offered on select evenings throughout the summer.
A full-service Watersports Centre offers sailing, windsurfing and jet skiing among other activities.
Praia da Falésia is the only beach in the Algarve to be awarded the prestigious Bandeira Dourada—or Golden Flag—by the European Union. The yearly recognition is bestowed upon beaches exemplifying a commitment to sound environmental practices and nature conservancy.
