The Costa de la Luz region
The 'Costa de la Luz' is just discovered as one of southern Spain's finest cultural & tourist destinations. It was always popular destination for Spanish tourists but now it is getting more and more popular for others. It is the western part of the Andalucía coastline that faces out to the Atlantic. The sand is finer and a more golden colour here than the neighbouring Costa del Sol.
The Costa de la Luz has a rich history that dates back to the twelfth century BCE, rich cultural heritage and amazing landscape including some of national parks.
The Bahía de Cádiz is a complex of Natural Parks and an important Ramsar site, and one of the best examples of Atlantic tidal marshes in the Iberian Peninsula. The position of the site between Doñana and the Gibraltar Straights help to make the bay one of the most important coastal wetlands in southern Europe.
