This is the fourth time we have stayed in Praia da Luz. Our last time was 11 years ago. The small town has grown a little but still retains its charm. The beach area and pedestrian promenade with shops and restaurants off it is relaxing and never feels crowded. The beach is one of the best in the area with great coastal walks to nearby villages. All the facilities you could need for a holiday are either in the local area or in the nearby large town of Lagos. Plenty of good restaurants in both areas to satisfy all tastes. We started coming here when the children were very young and still enjoyed it very much years later. Will return some day.

Very clean beach, but can get very very busy by lunchtime. If you walk up to the black cliff at the end of the beach this is usually quieter. Various water sports on offer for those that want it. We went in July which was very windy and found the sea (Atlantic Ocean) a bit too cold, but apparently it does get warmer!!!!

Praia da Luz is a small relaxed chilled resort not to over run commercially and just right if you want a sun lounging quiet break. The beach is great with plenty of room and clean enough and there are enough shops, cafés and restaurants to eat out but not too many to put you off going out!! If u are after nightclubs galore and party party party don't bother it's a great relaxed resort and long may it continue we visit each year in July and like the simple life it gives you.

Lovely clean, upmarket resort with a nice beach, but not the place to go unless you like it very quiet
