“Nice little resort....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

We stayed at Luz in September for two weeks at a private villa & really liked the resort. Although it's quite small it has a super beach, selection of restaurants/shops & two supermarkets although if you wanted to dine out at a different restaurant for every night of the two weeks you would be struggling.
If you like a busy, bustling place with lots of music & bar's then Luz would not be for you!
We found the surrounding area easy to explore from Luz & visited a number of other coastal towns/resorts from Faro in the east to Amaco in the far west.
There is a lovely coastal path that runs from Luz into Lagos if you like walking but the path is tricky in parts due to cliff erosion.

“Boat trips to grotto”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

Beautiful beach with a handful of bars and restaurants. This is our third visit here due to our lovely friends letting us stay in their holiday villa. Boat trips from the beach take you to the grotto and the trip is a must, for €20 they take you on a guided tour of the grotto which is a magical experience. The skipper was friendly and made the trip very special.
