Praia da Luz
Perfect place to live
Luz is a small, family-oriented, seaside village situated 5 km outside of Lagos, near the Vicentine Coast National Park. The village is nestled in a sandy bay with a black rock protrusion to the east, called “Rocha Negra”, and an inclined ledge to the west that continues to make a slopping cliff at “Cama da Vaca.”
Though the sea in Praia da Luz is generally calm, large northwesterly swells wrap around Cape St Vincent and produce epic surf conditions in Luz, more predominantly in the winter. Otherwise, clear blue water and sandy bottoms, with interesting rocky ledges and formations, make Luz a natural underwater haven for snorkelers and scuba divers.
Luz offers great conditions to enjoy the beach year round.
BEST PLACE IN THE WORLD TO LIVE
It is impossible to come to the Algarve and not fall in love with it. Referred to as “the best place in the world to live or retire that nobody’s talking about,”* the Algarve has become home for a growing number of expatriates from Northern Europe and elsewhere. Its signature beaches, mild weather, and 300+ days of sunshine, which have some referring to it as “the Southern California of Europe,” make the Algarve the perfect place to call home year-round.
