Things to do in Praia da Luz
Praia da Luz holidays are ideal for those who are interested in the history and heritage of this town as they make for some of the most popular attractions. The ruins of the roman baths can be visited just behind the promenade and are said to have been built between the 3rd and 5th Century AD. They were discovered during construction before the area became a popular resort, however the builders were careful enough to work around them. While we wouldn’t advise any bathing here, they truly are something to look at and are a fantastic piece of history!
Journey into Lagos to visit the Antonine Museum to see the church of Santo Antonio. According to legend, Saint Antony of Lisbon was born here before the church was built. The statue of Prince Henry can be seen here as well as the former slave market. Have your camera at the ready so you can take your memories home!
Beach life couldn’t get any better than on holiday in Praia de Luz. The closest beach is within walking distance of Praia da Luz and has been awarded the infamous European Blue Flag which indicates both the sand and sea are nice and clean. Rocha Negra (black rock) is a cliff on the east side of the village made from volcanic movements which happened millions of years ago. It hangs over the sea and is up there with one of the most historic attractions in the Algarve. Praia da Luz beach is ideal for a family day out, paddling in the crystal waters with your little ones before sipping on an ice cold beverage up on the promenade.
Do you dare to rally through the ocean on a jet ski or laugh until you can’t breathe on a banana boat! Explore the rock pools and search for shells to take home as a souvenir. For a quieter day, slip away to Prainha da Luz or Praia Dona Ana (named as one of the fifty best beaches in the world!). These small, tranquil beaches are a great place to unwind, laze under the sun and listen to the waves crash against the shore.
