Praia de luz is a little further than the bigger commercial resorts on the Algarve but worth the extra journey. It's predominantly a middle class family resort frequented by a fair few UK holiday makers and residents alike with nice beaches and good quality restaurants.

Great for families, if you wanna party the night away you would be in the wrong place. Can get pretty boring if stay exceeds one week.

The Luz beach is a nice place to relax yourself in the sun. But if you want to get a nice place during the best season you have to be really early in the morning to get your "best spot" and its completely crowded.

Ideal location to base and travel to see the full delights of the Western Algarve. The weather what ever time of year is kind and you would be very unlucky not... More

We've visited Luz every year since 2007 - it's absolutely perfect for us. The beach is delightful, clean and, since the bay is well sheltered, bathing is quite safe, making it ideal for even the smallest child. The town is small, but caters well for holidaymakers and residents alike with supermarkets, restaurants, cafes, takeaways, and the inexpensive local transport allows... More

Have been to Luz on 4 occasions now. It gets better ever time I go back. Lovely little town which has not lost its charm. Plenty of excellent restaurants to eat in. Very relaxing place to go on holiday, with a lovely little beach to sunbathe on.

Placed around a lovely picturesque beach this resort is a quiet but has many caves and restaurants providing a wide variety of different experiences. The scenery is beautiful and in late October the weather was kind and everywhere fairly quiet yet still with enough people around to avoid it feeling dead. The area around it has many places to visit... More
