Praia de Luz Guide

Built around an old fishing village, Praia de Luz has grown to become one of the top beach resorts in the Algarve district. Part of Portugal's flourishing tourism industry, the 'Beach of Light', is now predominately a tourist town, with numerous holiday-villa complexes dominating the commercial activity. Praia de Luz has the pride of being considered a Blue Flag beach, thanks to its high quality of beach and sea. The beach has two characteristic parts, the white sand characteristic of beaches in Algarve and another 'rock zone'. The location can be reached by driving from nearby towns by the use of car hire or by flying to the Faro airport.

As a tourist destination Praia de Luz is unique in that it hardly has any hotels, instead the majority of visitors rent villas and bedrooms. This allows for a cosy experience and a truly unique holiday. Apart from the beautiful beach, other attractions include the church of Nossa Senhora de Luz, 'Our Lady of Light'. The church was destroyed in 1755 due to an earthquake but has since been reconstructed. There's also a roman archaeological site for those interested.

There is also a long cobbled walkway for those who would like to take a walk near the beach and watch the sunset. The walkway is decorated with various designs. The town also boasts a number of restaurants and some pubs and night clubs. There are also a number of souvenir shops that dot the area, allowing tourists to take a part of Praia de Luz back home with them.

The town is also located near other major attractions in Algarve, and many tourists opt to stop of at Praia de Luz for a relaxing couple of days before continuing with their tour of Portugal. The lovely beach is its main draw and during peak season the area is filled with tourists from around the world.

Frequently asked questions

Is Carrentals.co.uk the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient. Are there any additional costs? In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation?
