Long Description:
Not far from Lagos, one of the biggest towns in Algarve, Luz has a fine beach and also has its attractives as a village. I do specially like it during low season, when it's perfect to come by for a stroll on its golden sand.

However, it can be too crowded during the Summer. There is plenty of touristic accomodation in the village and parking becomes a nightmare.
