Praia da Luz is a long sheltered bay of fine golden sand with a backdrop of towering cliffs at the easter end, and low-rise white properties behind. Praia da Luz is incredibly popular, especially with its loyal English expatriate community and in summer time tourists and residents fill the beach.
There are plenty of amenities to hand, with shops, bars and restaurants throughout Luz and there are many places to snack along the beach front along the delightful palm-lined promenade. There are plenty of water sports to enjoy and you can even rent paddleboats. There is disabled access to this beach.
