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 pit stop 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 a car park over to the left of the beach, providing direct access on to the beach within just a few steps. Disabled access is therefore very easy and ideal for anyone with children. If this parking area is full, you will often be able to find a free space along a roadside; however in peak summer time, it may take a little longer to find a space.
There is a a lovely promenade along the back of the beach leading to a pretty paved seating area below the church.
The western end of the beach is made up of large, flatish rocks, ideal for children (and Dads!) to spend some time rock pooling.
Praia da Luz is a supervised beach and is also classed as an "Accessible Beach".
Praia Prahina (or 'Prahina beach') is a very small bay to the west of the Fortress and Praia da Luz. There is nothing but some fine sand and smooth rocks at the back and to the western end, but it is a private little beach away from the bustle of Praia da Luz. It is only a very short distance from the promenade and all of its amenities so it is still close enough to pop for drinks, lunch, shopping or toilets.
Prahina is not a supervised beach.
Shopping & Eating Out:
The local gastronomy of Praia da Luz is based on the delicious fresh fish that are readily available and which is served in numerous ways!
Cataplana is normally a mix of fish and sea food such as clams (amêijoas) and prawns (camarões) with tomatoes, chouriço, peppers and herbs cooked with wine in a sealed clam shaped copper vessel to retain all the flavours and is really delicious; Arroz de marisco - a very tasty seafood risotto or a fish grilled to perfection and served with a salad - these are just some of the ways.
Chicken (frango) is always popular and chicken piri-piri (barbecued with a pepper sauce) is often on the menu along with pork (porco) and lamb (borrego) dishes.
Desserts traditionally use almonds and figs in cakes and pastries or just fresh fruits if you don't have a 'sweet tooth'!
Praia da luz has a wide selection of restaurants, cafés and bars and also a nightclub. It caters well for all tastes and budgets with English pubs, Irish bars, Chinese and Italian restaurants, restaurants serving international cuisine as well as traditional Portuguese.
There are cafés and restaurants along the beach front, a restaurant on the beach and many more in and around the centre. Praia da Luz has long been a favourite with British visitors and settlers who prefer the quieter end of the western Algarve and caters really well for families.

We are a group who have done several of these types of holidays, and have children between the ages of 1 and 8, and can honestly say the amenities at Vivenda Oasis are the best we have had. The activities available are enough to keep everyone of all ages occupied (including the adults!)
The villa is well furnished to a good standard, with a nice, sociable kitchen, and BBQ area. The games room, childrens area and basketball and table tennis are all great compliments to the good sized pool, with a nice childrens pool attached. The photos of the villa and the amenities do not do the villa justice.
The walk to the town centre is about 10-15 minutes, and although the walk back is uphill, it is not too bad and the taxi numbers provided were very reliable and prompt when they were needed.
Geoff, the villa manager, was extremely helpful and on hand to help to make our stay as stress free and relaxed as possible, we could not speak highly enough, going out of his way to help us where he could.
The town itself has a variety of restaurants and bars, the only thing to recommend would be booking a day or so in advance if you wish to eat out in a large group, as we found it difficult to get into some restaurants without doing so.
Overall, the villa had everything we needed to enjoy an excellent holiday, and we would definitely recommend it, and come back again if and when we return to this part of Portugal. The staff right from the start of the booking process to departing the villa and afterwards were extremely helpful and accommodating, and a pleasure to deal with.
" On the edge of perfection"
The reason for the title is this is a fantastic villa, clean and very spacious, it would have to have been as there were three families that included 6 grandchildren.
Lets start with the villa as the description of the rooms are a little confusing there is only two bedrooms with on-suite bathrooms and two additional bathrooms, so thats two on each floor and they were of the highest quality so ample for the number of rooms.
The lounge and Kitchen area is open plan and very airy and light, again ample space for everyone, there is also a separate living / bedroom and a games room that housed the washing machine and chest freezer.
Outside is were this villa comes into its own, a pool that has a children's play section and main pool that at one end you can jump into (depth of 2.4m). Not all pools are that deep and this was much enjoyed by the grandchildren.
The addition of two hammocks and kookaburra shade awnings again gave ample shaded space, together with a table we could all sit down for alfresco dinning was another winning point. Other notable points is the actual size of the grounds, it is huge with trampoline and swings tucked away and table tennis and basket ball shooter closer there is ample activities to keep even the most demanding children occupied.
Other notable points that you do not often get is a gated entrance that is lockable and a rotary drying line tucked away so drying washing was not an eyesore taking up space on the patio.
I could go on and on but to clarify the "Edge of perfection" this villa is on the outskirts of Luz and it is a realistic 25min walk and in heat this can be hard but there are ample taxis available for a few euros so not an expensive addition to your holiday.
One last word is for Geoff the villa manager who was very attentive and nothing was nothing would have been too much trouble but because it is such a good villa we had no reason to trouble him.

This was our first villa holiday and it was excellent.
This was our first villa holiday and it was excellent. Our family ranged in age from 18 mths to 69 years and a fantastic holiday was had by all. The villa was amazing!!! It had everything you could imagine to ensure the holiday was enjoyed by all. The pool (which we paid to have heated) was brilliant. It was spotless and very well maintained. The pool's toddler area was a godsend for our little ones who thoroughly enjoyed it. Restaurants/beach were a 20 minute walk away. We used taxis for our big shop (Lidl nearest large supermarket had reasonable selection of items) and found this worked well. Geoff our rep on site was extremely helpful and I would have no hesitation in booking with Villaview again and will certainly recommend them to friends and family. Thanks for a great holiday .
