Came in and descover Luz in Algarve, Portugal

Church of Our Lady of the light Luz is in the Western Algarve, an area of unspoilt villages and open countryside.

Luz is situated in the council of Lagos and it has its borders with in, the South, the sea, North the parish of Barão São João, East the parish of Santa Maria and São Sebastião; and West with the parish of Budens. The parish of Luz includes Luz, Espiche and Almadena.

Praia da Luz is a village resort, which retains the charm and character of a Portuguese village and yet offers outstanding facilities and comfortable modern accommodation.

Behind the beach narrow streets of white painted houses wander back to the village centre. The old and the new intimately blend together and invite you to feel at home in this relaxed location. Thankfully the original name has been shortened which meant the “beach of the church of Our Lady of the light”.

Praia da Luz was a fishing village and a long wall of net was stretched from the rocks in front of the Fortaleza to trap the Tuna.

Luz is renowned for its safe sandy beach which forms the central attraction for many holidaymakers.

Feeling more energetic; there are water sports centres where wind surfers and sail boats can be hired. Tuition in water ski and diving are available from the beach.



Luz - Black Rock The historic town of Lagos is only four miles away and there are regular bus and taxi services between the village and town.

A hire car is a great way to explore the local area and can be cheaper than relying on taxi transfers to and from the airport.

Self catering is increasingly popular and offers a chance to make the budget go a little further.

For the sporting enthusiast Praia da Luz can be a great holiday location. Mention sport in the Algarve and its golf which springs first to mind. Local courses include Boavista Golf Course, Palmares Golf Course and Parque da Floresta.
