The Andalucia region
The Costa de la Luz is known as "The Coast of Light " with beautiful sunsets and miles of uncrowded beaches and nature reserves. The area has long been the destination of the the Spanish with low rise developments and towns retaining their traditional heritage and hospitality.
HUELVA is the next closest city to Ayamonte, there you will find a museum with many remarkable archaeological Roman finds; its other claim to fame is that it was the starting point of Columbus’ famous epic voyage.
Historical SEVILLE is about 75 minutes away, full of ancient cultural heritage that dates back beyond
recorded history. Today, much of the Rio Guadalquivir (The Great River) riverfront is made up of an
attractive tree-lined promenade. There is so much to see and explore in the way of art and
architecture but its highlights include the spectacular cathedral, Moorish and Renaissance palaces
and fine museums, all within walking distance of each other. You will also find many shops and
markets to visit, or just relax and enjoy the delights of the local wine and cuisine.
CADIZ claims to be Europe’s oldest city with a vast cathedral which is one of the largest in Spain,
there are many Baroque buildings which enhance this beautiful provincial City.
Situated on the estuary of the Río Guadiana, the second longest river in Europe, Ayamonte's development has been inextricably linked to its position on the border with Portugal. Until the 1990s, Ayamonte occupied a prime position for crossing the Spanish-Portuguese border, with its frequent ferries across the river to Vila Real de San Antonio in Portugal. In 1991 an impressive new suspension bridge was opened two kilometres north of Ayamonte that took away the town's cross-border traffic on what is now a motorway linking the Algarve with Huelva city and Seville. The journey from Ayamonte to Faro on the Algarve now takes a mere 45 minutes.
Ferries still go to Vila Real in Portugal with the boat company Transportes del Guadiana, which runs regular boats from the Muelle de Portugal in the centre of Ayamonte. From Vila Real there are frequent buses to
The centre is a good place to take a leisurely stroll, as many of its narrow streets are pedestrianised. These link small, pretty plazas, which are tucked away but full of busy pavement cafés and bars serving great seafood
characteristic of the Huelva Costa de la Luz. Visit the elegant Plaza de la Laguna, for a good choice of eating
places with outdoor seating. Next to the main square, the Paseo de la Ribera, is the harbour and further along is the ferry dock. In the old town is the fifteenth-century Iglesia de San Salvador, worth a visit for its memorable
tower with superb views across to Portugal. There are similar good views from the tower of the sixteenth-century San Francisco church nearby.
Ayamonte is surrounded by protected areas teeming with wildlife. The Marismas del Guadiana, the marshes of the Guadiana estuary, is rich in birdlife, including herons, storks and flamingos.
The nearest beach is the new resort of Isla Canela, five minutes' drive away from the centre of Ayamonte. It boasts a particularly wide stretch of sandy beach, with chiringuitos (summer beach bars), parasols and hammocks for hire and showers. It is a fast-growing resort, with many new holiday apartment blocks, as well as a big hotel, the Ríu Canela, and a golf course. However, it also has extensive sand dunes and marshes home to abundant wildlife.

"A perfect stree free holiday"
The apartment was just what we wanted in the town just a short walk to the centre.It is well furnished,comfortable and equiped in a calm part of Ayamonte with reserved parking.
Ayamonte is a proper Spanish town and has a good selection of tapa bars and restaurants at prices that won't break the bank..............altogether a great place to "hang out" and get the feel of the real Spain.
Of the nearby resorts our choice was "la Antilla" as is was low key with a long white sand beach for dog and people walking.
We were there in January 2014,no rain,sunny most days with 15 to 18°C,evenings a little chilly............a perfect holiday for us.

"Ideal place to experience a piece of Spanish life"
The apartment is modern yet has an authentic feel and also benefits from being in a very pleasant part of Ayamonte. The view across the river to Portugal is a delight and you get to see some great sunsets at the end of the road. We enjoyed the stroll into the town centre (approx. 15mins) where there is a good selection of bars and restaurants for tapas etc. The nearby beaches are easy to get to whilst the motorway allows easy access to Faro and Seville. Don't forget to take the ferry over to Villa Real from Ayamonte as well. All in all, a pleasant stay in 'real' Spain.
