Offering resorts on the south-west region of Spain right next to the Portuguese border, Costa de la Luz holidays are some of the most scenic, peaceful and satisfying experiences available underneath the Mediterranean sunshine.
The surrounding nature and atmosphere has led to this region being known as the Spanish Algarve to reflect the similar environment of nearby Portugal. The expected presence of wonderful beaches is supported my cliffs, forests and marshlands in what is a refreshing location to enjoy a laidback holiday.
Not your typical Brits abroad atmosphere, there are visitors from all over Europe with Spanish and Portuguese visitors enjoying this region's beauty too. The majority of evenings are coastal cool and there are also a terrific offering of delicious restaurants.
Holidays to Costa de la Luz are ideal for tourists looking to relax in an unspoiled area of Spain within some fantastic hotels and villas. There are attractions and activities for children but couples are the biggest benefactors of this region with serene, romantic settings in abundance.
The most family friendly resort in Costa de la Luz, El Rompido has a cool selection of activities and attractions that visitors of all ages can enjoy.
With a nearby waterpark, kayak cruises, spa treatments and golf courses, there really is something for everyone here. You're all invited to find your own space somewhere across the 3km of beach by El Rompido, or you could take a short boat across the river and lay out on the 12km at Nuevo Portil.
As the sun goes down, head towards the Horizontal Beach Club to enjoy a cocktail by the ocean on those warm summer nights.
A Spanish island separated from the mainland by a small canal, Isla Canela is a resort that enjoys an interesting contrast of nature.
The south side hosts 6km of stunning beach space that has been awarded a European Blue Flag. The north side of the island is more unique with a wide area of wetlands that are fascinating to walk around and amazing to paddle through. Hire a kayak and drift leisurely through the area to see the greenest fauna and some beautiful wildlife.
Drive across the bridge and it's a 15 minute trip to reach the interesting town of Ayamonte.
Islantilla boasts a terrific beach space, modern holiday accommodation and smooth natural surroundings.
Laidback activities give you the opportunity to sample the nature with water sports, golf courses and hiking trails all found nearby. Islantilla could also be the starting point of an exciting boating adventure as you can hire your own small sail boat to journey along the Spanish and Portuguese coast.
If you want to pick up a bargain souvenir that has a strong Spanish vibe, head to the La Hacienda shopping centre by the beach to grab a long-lasting memento or a heavenly ice-lolly.
The beaches, forests and wetlands of Costa de la Luz look simply stunning throughout the 300 days of sunshine enjoyed each year. The temperatures reach an average of 26C during August but it is shorts and t-shirt weather day and night from April to October.
This is a quiet region of Spain but there are numerous celebrations held in the area throughout the year. The Carnival in February and the Virgin del Carmen fiesta in July is a delight, but the most unique is the International Film Festival held in Islantilla every July and August.
About 90 minutes away from your resort is Spain's third largest city, Seville. There are plenty of major attractions to snap a picture of like the Maestranza Bullring, the Tower of Gold and the Plaza d'Espana. This is a city with a rich heritage that has been mixed with some great modern attractions.
Featuring a great selection of thrill slides with name like Tornado, Hurricane and Black Hole, there are calmer areas for all ages to enjoy too at Aquapolis. The large family attraction is found within the region of Cartaya which is close to all three resorts in Costa de la Luz.
This Spanish town is filled with narrow streets and historic buildings proving its importance in Spanish folklore. Separated from Portugal by the narrow Guardiana River, you drive over the motor bridge or you can take a short ferry to reach the neighbouring country.
Golf is a popular pastime throughout Spain and Costa de la Luz has some great facilities to utilise the perfect playing conditions. Each resort has a nearby course with some featuring more than the traditional 18-holes. The grounds are well cared for and the clubhouse is always fully stocked for beginners and veterans to enjoy their experience.
Whether it's along The Arrow river in El Rompido or the mazy wetlands of Isla Canela, the waters are calm enough to be perfect for a kayak cruise. Head out on your own or set off with a guide to see some of the varied nature that makes this part of Spain so special.
