“A place to chill out”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2014

Praia da Luz and its bar is a wonderful place to go for a walk , sit near the sea , listen to the sound of the waves and seagulls waves and feel the " maresia " , the smell of the sea . Personally I would prefer if there was no music , as sometimes you just wish to sit down , relax and unwind .

“the best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 September 2013

I live just outside Praia da Luz and although getting a bit tatty in the main the people are friendly and helpful the eateries are good if you stick to what you know, but try something new Piri Piri is not liked by the locals but is worth a try its not just a beach but an experience worth a try
