Luxury beach resorts are the staple of many holidays in the Algarve and something Praia du Luz has in abundance. This is the perfect place to base yourself for a holiday of sun worshipping, as it has some of the best beaches in the region as well as being only a short hop from Lagos, one of the most picturesque towns in southern Portugal.
Activity in Praia du Luz is generally concentrated along the beach promenade, where you will find shops and restaurants in excess. Along this stretch of busy beachfront you can also escape into the slightly more tranquil Roman Baths that date from as early as the 3rd century.
With its low-rise skyline and numerous amenities, Praia da Luz is one of the more relaxing resorts in the region and the perfect base from which to set off in search of the Algarve's hidden gems.
