DOWNLOAD REPORT


The magnificent Praia da Luz, with its generous soft sand bank, framed by the cliff that bears the geodesic landmark and by the white houses of the old fishing village, is a beach accessible to people with reduced mobility, has support and beach surveillance. The beach itself is divided into two parts, one with fine white sand, characteristic of the region, and the other with rocks, offering an exotic atmosphere provided by the palm trees that recall other tropical places. The water is clean and transparent. (automatic translation)
