Cities at the Algarve
The holiday scene in Lagos is hardly hectic, but it is lively compared with the seaside villages along the coast. PRAIA DA LUZ welcomes those who want a fairly get-away-from-it-all sort of family holiday with all the essential comforts but not too much razzmatazz. Of the coastal villages to the west of Lagos, Praia da Luz is the most developed, which means it is also the one which has lost a little more of its original fishing village charm. Small hotels, villas and apartments mingle with fisherman's cottages, and there are a good range of restaurants and shops. There is also a large shady camp site a short distance out of town on the Lagos road.
