Praia da Luz

Praia da Luz - not only a popular spa for holidaymakers

Praia da Luz (Beach of Light) like most towns on the Algarve coast was originally a fisherman's village. Even though today it has grown to a popular seaside resort it still manages to retain a lot of its old charm and at the same time offering the holidaymaker golden sands, superb dining and first class facilities.

Praia da Luz has a historical past. Luz has its own Roman ruins recently excavated and preserved. Then came the Moors, followed by the Crusaders in the 13th century, then conquered by Spain and eventually being reclaimed by the Portuguese. The fort was built during the 16th Century, to defend against pirates.

The bay is protected to the East by the famous Rocha Negra (black rock) cliff, a product of the Monchique region's volcano lava flow from some 150 million years ago. To the West is the old 16th century fort built to ward off pirates but now is a smart restaurant which has some spectacular views from its terraces.

Between the two landmarks is Luz's lovely, long sandy beach which is overlooked by the town itself. An exceptional patterned cobbled promenade runs from just below the pretty Church of “Nossa Senhora da Luz” along the whole of the seafront to the cluster of beach bars. The promenade is normally busy with many craft stalls during high season and there are also several cafes, bars, restaurants and gift shops. The town of Praia da Luz is generally a lot quieter and more peaceful than many other coastal resorts on the Algarve.

As well as the beach and the water sports you will find also plenty of other things to do such as tennis, walking tours, horse riding to the more extreme sports such as quad biking, rock climbing and micro lighting. There are also health spas and fitness centres located in the resort complexes.
Algarve golfing is legendary and there are several well known championship standard golf courses close by Praia da Luz!
