Praia da Luz ("Beach of Light") was originally just a small fishing village, with a history going back to the times of the Romans, when fish salting was carried out along the seafront. The arrival of tourism in the second half of the 20th century has resulted in some development of the town, though it has mostly not been spoilt by it.

Praia da Luz is located about 10km west of Lagos, on the edge of the Parque Natural do Sudoeste Alentejano e Costa Vicentina and is about 90 kilometres from Faro and its airport, it can be accessed from the N-125 coastal road.
