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.

Places to Visit


Gibraltar is like a little Britain on the Spanish Coast. On this day you'll drive through the Andalucian region and it's capital Seville, towards Jerez de la Frontera - famous for its delicious sherry - and pass by the cotton fields onwards to Gibraltar. When you arrive on Gibraltar you'll have five hours to spend as you please. For an extra charge you can go on a tour of the famous rock.


The Algarve nudges right up against Spain's western border, so it'd be a shame not to sample its bigger neighbour during your holiday. You'll arrive in this magical city on the banks of the Guadalquivir River with plenty of time to take in its highlights. Snap photos of its beautiful Maestranza bullring, twelve-sided Tower of Gold and grandly colonnaded Plaza d'Espana. Plus get a close-up look at its colossal cathedral. Another highlight comes with a tour of Santa Cruz, the charming old Jewish district. Laced with pretty plazas, orange trees and patios, it's a joy to stroll around. You'll also get some free time for a little exploring of your own. Grab lunch at a friendly restaurant before heading back.
