Costa de la Luz
The Costa de la Luz in western Andalusia stretches from Gibraltar to Cadiz. It is a beautiful, green and hilly region. Here you will find a beautiful interior with “whitewashed villages” such as Vejer de la Frontera and Arcos de la Frontera, as well as beautiful wide beaches and a lot of peace and quiet. There is no mass tourism here! Cities such as Cadiz and certainly Jerez de la Frontera are certainly worth a visit.
The ‘coast of the light’ has several interesting villages and towns that are perfect for a day trip or excursion. You can wander around and enjoy beautiful squares, narrow winding streets, beautiful churches, cozy terraces and excellent restaurants.
The Costa de la Luz has beautiful, traditional, dazzling white villages in a hinterland full of pine trees, meadows and hills. Arcos de la Frontera, founded by the Romans, is spectacularly perched on a rock and, together with the picturesque Vejer de la Frontera, which consists of a castle and narrow, whitewashed streets, it is considered among the most beautiful villages in Andalusia.
The fairytale-like Cádiz enchants everyone with its carefree atmosphere and lively old town. This port city is lapped by the Atlantic Ocean and is full of relics from the past. Including a Roman theater and a beautiful cathedral. A little further away is the lively city of Seville, which is not only beautiful to see but also really worth experiencing. The mix of architecture, history, parties, traditions and conviviality make a visit to Seville a real experience.
The Costa de la Luz owes its fame to the kilometers of beaches that are still untouched in many places, and sometimes even located in the middle of a nature reserve. For thousands of years, tuna has been caught here according to the traditional method of the Almadraba, which is served in the countless fish restaurants.
The endlessly long, white sandy beaches are perfect for a cooling dip, sunbathing and water sports. The paradisiacal beaches between the seaside resorts of Zahara de los Atunes and Conil de la Frontera are the most famous and stretch for tens of kilometers. You will not only find beaches with umbrellas, sunbeds and boulevards, but also cozy, sheltered coves with high cliffs, pine forests and beautiful views.
The beach of Bolonia near Tarifa is considered by many to be the most beautiful beach on the Costa de la Luz. This wide sandy beach of several kilometers is located in a picturesque setting. From the sand dunes on the west side you can see the coast of Morocco. On the beach you will find a handful of bars and restaurants serving tasty tapas and fresh fish dishes. Tarifa itself has grown in recent decades from a quiet fishing town to the wind and kite surfing capital of Europe.
Between Caños de Meca and Barbate is a nature reserve with a beautiful pine forest. You can take a walk through the nature reserve where you regularly look out over the sea and the cliffs. Bird lovers can observe special species of birds here.
Parque Nacional de Doñana is the largest nature reserve of its kind in Europe. It encompasses a vast wetland surrounding a river delta and is an important bird sanctuary for European and African migratory birds. For example storks, herons, spoonbills, ducks, geese and waders. Park rangers organize special excursions through the area that take you to places that are closed to the public.
