Costa De La Luz

The gateway to North Africa, the Costa de la Luz contains some of Spain’s most charming sights away from the bustling crowds. Festival fans can explore the fascinating maritime settlement of Cadiz, and enjoy the spectacular views of the city from the Totte Tavira watchtower or sample the beach life around Playa de la Victoria. A little further inland, the walled city of Jerez de la Frontera is a gastronome’s paradise with its signature sherry the perfect accompaniment to the plethora of tapas dishes available at the many characterful eateries in the city. Meanwhile, Tarifa is the windsurfing capital of Europe and is situated amongst kilometres of sandy beaches, whilst the resort of El Palmar is the perfect place to surf the waves. For the more laid-back, Canos de Meca’s alternative scene has attracted flower power disciples from around the world for over half a century.
