    Living by the waves in Luz

    Luz isn't your usual resort town. Whitewashed cottages and rustic Algarvian churches stand above the dusty streets, giving it the air of a traditional fishing village or Mexican pueblo. Above, the mighty Rocha Negra cliffs soar to frame the main beachfront – Praia da Luz – in a wall of stone, the Atlantic waves forever rolling onto the honey-hued sands below. There's a promenade that bustles with cafes and art sellers, all shaded by a line of royal palms. Luz holiday rentals dot the area, ranging from seafront villas to family apartments with pools.

    The sea beckons in Luz

    Get the sun cream ready and start picking out the bikinis and boardshorts, Luz is all about life on the shores of the Algarve. You can bag yourself Luz holiday rentals with views over the roaring Atlantic Ocean and stay just a stone's throw from the wide arc of sand that fronts the town. Praia da Luz has all the usual sun-splashed activities – sunbathing, sandcastle building, swimming. Other adventures on the sea include dolphin spotting or jet boats out to the rugged grottoes of Ponte de Piede.

    Luz and Lagos joined at the hip

    While Luz holiday rentals specialise in slowing the pace of life with sun, sand and sea right on the doorstep, they also sit tantalisingly close to the bustling town of Lagos. That's great news if you love 17th-century castles and haunting historic churches. Lagos is just a quick hop to the east. The mighty Forte da Ponta da Bandeira is a great place to start – it's loaded with stories of seafaring adventurers and pirate attacks. Lagos Zoo is en route and perfect for families who want a glimpse of rare monkeys and multicoloured parrots.

    Lovely weather abounds in Luz

    Sun and scorching temperatures pretty much sum up the Luz summertime. It runs from June to August and sees the villas and seafront apartments become packed with family holidaymakers in search of a stay close to the beaches – expect the mercury to hit 30 or more. Spring, in April and May, is another popular time to hit town, especially as the weather's balmy and there are fewer crowds. Same goes for autumn, in September and October, which also touts the hottest sea temperatures of all.

    Luz on the raw Atlantic

    Luz is blessed with its own wide bay of golden-yellow sand. It runs beneath the trademark cliffs of the Algarve coast just west of Lagos, overlooked by the huge volcanic cliff known as the Rocha Negra. The sea here is actually ocean. Swells roll in from the Atlantic, which bring chances of dolphin spotting, but also some seriously chilly currents in the water – just be ready. A trip to the west can take you to Sagres and the vast south-west Alentejo and Vicentine Coast Natural Park, a place of sparkling bays, grass-topped cliffs and beautiful ocean vistas.
