Praia la Luz was beautiful. The beach was nice and sandy. The kids really liked playing on the beach. We hiked up the cliff (which was relatively easy - - our 6 year old kids could do it) and saw absolutely beautiful views. It was the highlight of our trip.

Most restaurants great except you have to book as there aren't an exhaustive list so in great demand.

Nice beach lots of restaurant. You have to have your own shade, tent or umbrella as not much protection from direct sun otherwise. Or hire the parasols or sun bed for €5 a day. It was October and it was not over crowded. May be a different story in the height of summer?

Nice beach but slightly spoilt by tacky bars, cafes and restaurants nearby. Sunset walks along the seafront, away from the bars, is very nice.

Lovely promenade with some good restaurants. Not the place to go if you're looking for nightlife; definitely more of a relaxing and eating out resort. Not many shops either but there's everything you need in Lagos which is 10 minutes away by taxi and 35 minutes by bus.

What a friendly place Luz is - everywhere we went we were made very welcome. There is a lovely beach and you can walk to just about everywhere in 15 minutes. It has more of a village feel and seems very safe and quite quiet although I am sure that will be very different in the height of the season.... More

I loved the place. Lots of great restaurants and bars. Everyone makes you feel welcome. No groups of drunks to be seen. Lots of variation in the restaurants, Local, Chinese, Indian, English etc all working hard to make money. Food and drink reasonably priced. With hindsight we should have hired a car from the airport as taxi was 140 euros... More

Lovely beach, beautiful panorama but not much entertainment and few restaurants of any value. This a place I wouldn't go back to.
