Things to know about the Costa de la Luz
Holiday on the Costa de la Luz - Spain's wild Atlantic coast
The picturesque Costa de la Luz stretches in southern Spain in Andalusia, from Gibraltar north along the Spanish Atlantic coast, up to Huelva. The estuary of the river Guadalquivir with its very interesting national park Coto de Doñana divides the Costa de Luz at least politically into the province Cádiz in the southeast and the province Huelva in the northwest. But along the entire coast, endless dunes, the finest sandy beaches and dreamy pine forests await holidaymakers. Large parts of the Costa de Luz also belong to the aforementioned National Park, which, with over 50,000 hectares of land, is Spain's largest and most important wetland area. Its unique landscape, often characterised by flooded wetlands, is also home to a wide variety of animal species and is particularly popular with bird lovers,
because every year many migratory birds spend the winter here. But also the extremely rare Pardelluchs - a subtype of the Eurasian lynx, is to be found here still. In German, Costa de la Luz means the coast of light - and rightly so! The location ensures that you will experience a unique sunset every evening. In general, the location on the Costa del Luz ensures that you get the best climate: The sunshine hours of Spain and a pleasant breeze from the Atlantic Ocean. The easiest and most time-saving way to reach the Coast of Light is by plane to Jerez de la Frontera airport, in the province of Cádiz. Book your holiday on the Costa de la Luz today!

Coast of Light: Experience the extraordinary landscape of the Costa de la Luz!
The city of Cádiz, south of the national park and capital of the province of the same name, is the largest port city in Andalusia and one of the tourist highlights of the region. The fascination of the city begins with the fact that it is one of the oldest cities in Western Europe and, according to legend, was founded by the Greek demigod Heracles. With its cathedral from the 18th century, the Balneario de la Palma - an old bath house at the city beach, the castles San Sebastian and Santa Catalina and many other sights, you will not get out of amazement anymore. The numerous cheap holiday apartments in the city and the surrounding area make Cádiz the perfect holiday destination for families with children. In addition to cultural highlights, the numerous sandy beaches with the best water quality are particularly impressive.
Also very worth seeing is Tarifa, the southernmost city of the European mainland. Due to its location at the narrowest point of the Strait of Gibraltar, Africa is within reach from here. While in the past the city was repeatedly the scene of major historical events, today it is primarily known as the Mecca of wind and kite surfers. With the exception of a few days in August, the winds blowing strongly throughout the year due to the special geographical location create perfect conditions for these trendy sports all year round. Also the old town centre of Tarifa, with its numerous medieval elements, is extremely worth seeing. Book your suitable accommodation with Holidu! Whether holiday home, finca or apartment!
