Praia da Luz like most towns on the Algarve coast was originally a fisherman's village. Even though today it has grown into a popular seaside resort it still manages to retain a lot of its old world charm and at the same time offering the holidaymaker golden sands, superb dining and first class facilities. The bay is protected to the East by the famous Rocha Negra (black rock) cliff, a product of the Monchique region's volcano lava flow from some 150 million years ago. Luz has a lovely, long sandy beach which is overlooked by the town itself. An exceptional patterned cobbled promenade ( Avenida dos Pescadores ) runs from just below the pretty Church of Nossa Senhora da Luz ( Our Lady of the Light ) along the whole of the seafront to the cluster of beach bars. The promenade is normally busy with many craft stalls during high season and there are also several cafe/bars, restaurants and gift shops.
Broadband is widely available in Portugal and is known as 'banda larga'. It is considered to function better than broadband services in the UK due to the fact that Portugal was one of the last countries to embrace broadband technology and thus has a system with newer design and technology. There are several service providers offering ADSL, fibre and wireless services in Portugal to the residential and the professional markets.

The west of the Algarve is without doubt one of the most beautiful and authentic regions in all of Portugal.
With a thriving coastline, the western Algarve is the least urbanised region in Portugal, meaning it has a vibrant collection of nationally protected nature reserves and gorgeous beaches. The traditional fishing villages are effervescent with life and Portuguese culture, with the fresh seafood caught daily by local fishermen supplementing some of Portugal's finest seafood dining.
You can easily stroll across the shoreline and between villages by following one of the many footpaths.
For those travelling internationally, flying to Faro airport is the best option. Faro Airport lies just two and a half miles from Faro- the capital of the Algarve. If you're making your way to Lagos, you'll have to plan ahead for the 90km journey from Faro airport to Lagos.
While there's no public transport hub at Faro airport, Eva buses operate between the airport and Faro City, and from Faro City you can catch a bus or a train to Lagos. A bus takes approximately two hours and ten minutes to reach Lagos, and a train takes about one hour and fifty minutes.
You can make use of public transport or you could rent a car or jump in a cab to the Western Algarve which is under an hour.
The Algarve enjoys a warm climate which means that the weather remains mild and sunny all year round.
The region has an average of over 3,000 hours of sunny skies each year, making the Algarve the perfect destination no matter what month of the year it is.
Lagos – A historic and lively city, Lagos offers splendid beaches, a lovely historic centre and an abundance of sights and activities all around the city and its beaches. Just a few minutes south of the old town centre of Lagos, the Ponta da Piedade's cliffside beach stands as a must-see natural wonder.
Perfect as a base to travel from and explore the western Algarve, from its 4km long Meia Praia beach to the surrounding charming towns to plan day trips to, Lagos stands as an essential city to visit when in the western Algarve.
Odeceixe - At the most northern point of the Algarve's West Coast is the town of Odeceixe.
The quaint little town paints a picture of traditional Portugal with stone cobbled streets, a centuries old church and the still operational windmill at the very top of Odeceixe.
From the top of the windmill, visitors can take in the entire town.
Aljezur Castle - The castle offers fantastic views of the whole of Aljezur and the path up to the castle is filled with information boards relating to the castle's rich history.
