Praia da Luz, Portugal | Portugal Special Report

Most folks don’t travel much further west than Lagos when they visit the Algarve, which is a shame. Some of the most spectacular beaches and prettiest towns are nestled along the furthest southwest and western Algarve coastlines. One such town is welcoming Praia da Luz, known for its excellent beachfront.

Luz wraps itself around a picturesque sandy bay and was originally a small fishing village. It’s located in the western Algarve, one hour west of Faro airport. Sandwiched between the towns of Lagos (6 kms) and Burgau (5 kms), it’s ideally situated for exploring the region’s best sights.
