Costa De La Luz Holidays - The Coast of Light

The stretch of southern Spain known as the Costa de la Luz (coast of light) is sandwiched between the border with Portugal and Tarifa point on the straits of Gibraltar. Compared with other parts of the Spanish coastline Costa de la Luz holidays reveal a refreshingly unspoilt region of Spain.

Sometimes dubbed 'The Spanish Algarve' Costa de la Luz holidays comprise resorts including Isla Canela and Islantilla. These Costa De La Luz holiday resorts are particularly close to the Portuguese border and Flights often go to and from Faro Airport in The Algarve.

Isla Canela is a flourishing resort with a long sandy beach, backed by an inlet that makes it virtually an island. The area around Isla Canela mainly consists of protected nature reserves. These marshy regions are home to several species of interesting resident and migratory birds.

The Costa de la Luz is excellent for sailing and for a variety of other water sports and there's a marina located in the town.

The club de golf Isla Canela is a first rate 18-hole golf course situated close to the sea and is a popular location for Costa de la Luz holidays. Islantilla is a tourist complex close to La Antilla where many Spaniards keep holiday homes. It is another good area for water sports particularly windsurfing and sailing.
