Area information about Cádiz – Costa de la Luz

The Costa de la Luz (Coast of Light) is one of Andalucia’s most spectacular coasts. This Atlantic coastal region is largely unspoilt thanks to much of it being a protected nature reserve, including the Doñana National Park, which is a designated area of outstanding beauty, and its long, golden beaches, sand dunes and pine forests attract visitors year round. New construction has been careful to blend with the landscape and its resorts are attractive and low-rise. It has airports for international arrivals at Cádiz and Huelva.



Undoubtedly, its beaches are what bring most visitors here. Strung together, they form an arc of golden sand from Ayamonte to Tarifa. The main ones are Boloña, El Palmar in Conil de La Frontera and Zahara de los Atunes. The latter is a great beach for water sport enthusiasts, with all the necessary equipment to practice sailing, windsurfing and fishing.


The Phoenicians founded this historic city, which is the capital of the Cádiz region, and it has played a significant role in Europe through the centuries. Columbus embarked from here to discover the Americas and it still retains the feel of Spain having once been a great colonial power. It is a lively and welcoming city that is lovely to explore.

Huelva has a busy port with plenty of great seafood restaurants to choose from. It attracts both local and international visitors due to its resorts, plus some interesting attractions and historical buildings.


The windsurfing capital of Europe attracts a cosmopolitan crowd. It is a charming town with wonderful restaurants and fashion boutiques and a laid-back atmosphere thanks to its eclectic mixture of the bohemian with the hip and trendy. Because of its closeness to the Costa del Sol, many residents from there spend their weekends in Tarifa.
