Praia da Luz in the Westalgarve

Between the two landmarks is the beach, which is family friendly and has a life guard in the summer months. There is an attractive promenade for strolling or relaxing on one of the many seats and there are some Roman remains accessed from the middle of the promenade. For such a small town there is an incredible selection and variety of restaurants, cafés and snack bars. There is also a night club on the seafront. There are some lovely shops for souvenirs and local arts and crafts. Even though the town has been developed into a tourist town, the atmosphere of an old fishing village is still present.
