Praia da Luz, Algarve, Portugal

The Resort

Praia da Luz has seen a lot of development over the years and is very popular among the British ex-patriot community. It's popularity is probably due to the great beach, selection of activities and it's range of amenities. There are many shops, bars and restaurants along the promenade behind the beach. Aswell as a good selection of shops, there are lots of market stalls and artisits displaying their work, a wander round these can sometimes be a welcome break from the beach. Praia da Luz is quite a peaceful resort and is perfect for relaxing family holidays.

The Beach

The major attraction in Praia da Luz is of course the wonderful beach which has attained the Blue Flag since 2005. The gentle sloping sand and shallow waters make it an ideal environment for children. There are also areas with rock pools if you want a break from sunbathing.

There are plenty of watersports on offer here such as scuba diving, snorkelling, windsurfing, paddleboats and a sailing school so there is plenty to keep you busy.

Things to do

Praia da Luz is a great place for those who enjoy outdoor sports such as tennis, horse riding, rock climbing, quad biking and walking tours, there really is something for everyone here. There are several bars, cafes and restaurants in the resort, as well as some market stalls and artists displaying their work.

For those who want a break from the beach, there are some ruins of Roman Baths which are quite interesting. There is also plenty to do in nearby resorts such as Slide and Splash water park at Lagos, Lagos zoo and Zoomarine which is in Gale.
