Location Praia da Luz, Luz - Lagos



On Praia da Luz there are an handicapped and disabled people support centre that was created by the Specialized Centre to the Included Citizen (NECI) and the Lagos municipality. Here you can enjoy a wonderful beach day.


There are 2 parking areas for handicapped and disabled users. The main one with 2 parking spaces on the beach entrance and other one on the road that exists on the eastern side of the beach.


On the way from the parking lot to the beach, we will find tarmac, the typical portuguese lime cobblestone and a wooden path.
To make the water wheelchair access to the water easier, there is also a plastic carpet, which keeps the wheelchair's wheels from sinking into the sand, hence improving its displacement.


The adapted public toilets is on the back of the beach facilities. It is reachable through the boardwalk and it is well equiped.

Beach Chair

There are 4 diferent beach wheelchairs for handicapped and disabled users available. They must be asked for on the existing support centre and if you are alone you can ask for help to get to the ocean.
