To see dolphins playing in the surf, head to Praia la Luz. Known locally as the Beach of Light, this sheltered stretch of fine sand features rugged volcanic cliffs to the east and a series of rock pools to the west. Nearby, you can stroll down a shady promenade offering a welcome break from the sun and easy access to the area's finest bars, restaurants, and shops. For something a little different, walk along the coast to other popular beaches, known for their rocky outcrops and secluded coves. Just a short drive from here, you can also visit Lagos, a small town noted for its medieval walls and richly decorated churches. Make Praia la Luz a centerpiece of your Luz vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Luz vacation planner.
