To see dolphins playing in the surf, head to Praia da Luz. Known locally as the Beach of Light, this sheltered stretch of fine sand features rugged volcanic cliffs to the east and a series of rock pools to the west. Nearby, you can stroll down a shady promenade offering a welcome break from the sun and easy access to the area's finest bars, restaurants, and shops. For something a little different, walk along the coast to other popular beaches, known for their rocky outcrops and secluded coves. Just a short drive from here, you can also visit Lagos, a small town noted for its medieval walls and richly decorated churches. For travelers who use our international travel planner, Luz holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Praia da Luz and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.
Praia da Luz Reviews
Kijk zelf maar en oordeel. Wij hebben voor het eerst kennis gemaakt met Luz en omgeving. Het is ons zo goed bevallen dat wij hier in juni volgend jaar weer gaan komen. more »Look for yourself and judge. We first got acquainted with Luz and surroundings. We are so pleased that we will come again here in June next year.
Noch schöner als der kleine Strand ist die Klippenwanderung zum Tafelberg. Wunderschöne Ausblicke und wunderbare Klippenwanderung, wenn man möchte, bis Lagos. more »Even more beautiful than the small beach is the cliff hike to Table Mountain. Beautiful views and wonderful cliff hike, if you like, to Lagos.
