Praia da Luz Holidays

Praia da Luz Holidays – Lazy days and peaceful nights

Praia de Luz owes much of its popularity, not only with British visitors but also with the British ex-pats who live there year-round, to the fact that despite development in recent years it has kept its village appeal and low-rise landscape. Cobbled streets of delightful white-washed houses lead down to the beach, and luxurious apartments and villas spread along the gently rising hills. You can understand why the resort is so popular - everything you need for a wonderful holiday is to hand; plenty of places to eat and drink, a good variety of shops for those on self-catering holidays, most of the holiday accommodation is easily accessible and within walking distance of the town and the beautiful beach, and for a day out, the historic city of Lagos is only ten minutes away.

A holiday in Praia da Luz is taken at a slower pace than in many of the larger resorts in the Algarve, making it ideal for families and couples wanting to simply relax, enjoy excellent food in traditional restaurants, and laze the day away on the beach. Even so, for party animals there are a couple of late-night bars in the village, and Lagos old town dances on until dawn breaks of the old castle walls.
