Falesia Beach, Olhos de Agua

4.7
#1 of 1,849 in Outdoors in Portugal
Walk for hours below beautiful cliffs along the sandy shores of Falesia Beach, popular among tourists for its dramatic backdrop. The beach is named for its gouged, red cliffs, which act as a blockade for troublesome winds that could ruin a good day in the sun. While the cliffs are rugged, the shoreline is calm and flat, and therefore good for playing or taking a long walk.
