Costa de la Luz

The Costa de la Luz (the Coast of Light) embraces the provinces of Cadiz and Huelva, from the town of Tarifa until the Spanish borders with Portugal. In such a vast area, you will find something to engage in, to make your holidays in Costa de la Luz some memorable ones.

Here, you will enjoy the highest number of hours of sun per year, which will fill you with renewed energies and willingness to enjoy fantastic moments.

The Costa de la Luz is full of virgin secluded beaches, much less crowded than those along the neighbouring Costa del Sol. Choose among the best beaches in Cadiz and the most mesmerising ones in Huelva the one that fits your needs and desires at best, and don’t miss out on the awesome Flecha del Rompido.

Their white and golden sand, the desert-like dunes, crystal clear water and the atmosphere of relaxation make these beaches a must-see while in Costa de la Luz. The province of Cadiz owns some of the most picturesque White Towns of Andalusia. You can visit them all and get lost in the narrow streets that border the whitewashed walls of the houses. Don’t miss out on Vejer de la Frontera and Tarifa, the latter being a true paradise for every open-air-sport lover.


The Costa de la Luz can brag about an awesome kitchen. Take a tour around the Sherry triangle, including El Puerto de Santa María, Sanlúcar de Barrameda and Jerez de la Frontera, and give a try to the delicious ham, strawberries, prawns, and fresh seafood, among others. The cuisine of Costa de la Luz won’t deceive you, as you will find out that cultures have to be discovered through the five senses.

The Costa de la Luz allows its visitors to jump off the borders directly in Portugal, as well as giving you the possibility to enjoy a getaway to Morocco. You can spot the African coast from numerous towns and beaches of Cadiz province, and you have so many ways to reach Morocco from Andalucia, that to choose just one of them will be a difficult task!
