Like many places in this part of the world, Praia da Luz was formerly a fishing village that now sources most of its income from tourism.

Praia da Luz is at its busiest throughout the summer period - from spring until autumn - but never gets too busy at any time of year. Temperatures reach the low to mid-30s on most days throughout this period making it a very reliable destination to visit in that sense. Prices tend to be slightly cheaper outside of these months over the winter period but the temperatures do drop at this time of year and the beach isn’t as attractive as it is during the hot summer months. As a result, a visit at this time isn’t really recommended.
One of the best things to do in Praia da Luz is to visit its secluded beach area. The beach rarely gets overcrowded, it has soft sand to relax on, has a friendly atmosphere and is supervised in summer. It is one of the Algarve’s most treasured places and you don’t want to miss out on it! If you are seeking some more fast-paced activities from your holiday, the bustling town of Lagos is just a short journey away. If you base yourself in either of these resorts, you can enjoy the best of both!
There is a great selection of accommodation options to choose from in Praia da Luz. Because it isn’t heaving with tourists, the resort has managed to escape most of the mega-hotel complexes and instead specialises in smaller-sized hotels, apartments and villas. The same is true for dining out in the region, with many family-run beach cafes and restaurants being the most popular (and recommended) places in the town.
