Luz, also known as Praia da Luz (pronounced “loozsh”) is still a typically Portuguese village in appearance with narrow cobbled streets but today it is devoted almost exclusively to its many north European visitors; many ex-pats also live here.
A promenade overlooks the sandy bay; this good-size golden crescent is backed by cliffs at one end, while at the other are large slabs, perfect for sand-free sunbathing. Family-friendly tourism is the name of the game here and Affinity Villas customers return to our villa rentals in Luz year after year. As you might expect there is a large choice of bars, cafes and restaurants, and some nightlife too, but if you’re search of a wild early-20s after-dark scene, this is not the place for you! Luz is also strong on water sports and horse riding.
