Praia da Luz
Holidays in Praia da Luz on Portugal's Algarve mean sunshine, a super sandy beach and the clear waters of the Atlantic ocean to cool down after a tough day sunbathing! Located just 6 klm from the lovely old town of Lagos, Praia da Luz is situated in the western Algarve and the name means Beach of Light.
Praia da Luz has a wonderful sheltered bay which is backed by a ridge of high cliffs and the soft golden sands attract beach babes, day trippers, swimmers, picnic parties, walkers, vendors, visitors and locals. A lovely promenade runs the length of the sandy beach and stately rows of palm trees add a touch of glamour and chic. Praia da Luz holidays appeal to singles, couples and families. The resort is laid back and the casual, friendly atmosphere is very attractive for relaxing holidays.
Local restaurants serve delicious typically traditional cuisine, international cooking and fresh fish specialities. Shops and stalls sell local art and craft articles and there are bars and cafes to people watch and enjoy the buzz of cheery company. A holiday in Praia da Luz is truly an exercise in R&R with nothing more energetic needed than a swim or a leisurely stroll along the promenade.
Certainly a trip into nearby Lagos should be on the to do list as it is possibly one of the most attractive towns on the entire Algarvian coast. Steeped in history with its walled streets dating from the 15th century, the cobble-locked squares and old fort are a simple delight. The narrow, meandering streets are perfect for window shopping or souvenir hunting and the old fish market offers plenty of raucous entertainment.
Praia da Luz is a great choice for a holiday in the Algarve as the resort has lots of charm and its development over the years has been sympathetic to the local environment. Praia da Luz has everything you need for a lovely holiday in the sun.
