The Costa de la Luz region
Conil is one of many seaside towns dotted along the Costa de la Luz, each with its own atmosphere and beauty. El Palmar which is just a few kilometres south of Conil has a laid-back sandy beach with bars and restaurants. In the evenings it's perfect to enjoy a drink watching the sun go down over the sea. Cape Trafalgar with its lighthouse was the location of the Battle of Trafalgar. The lighthouse can be seen from the roof terrace of Casa Number One, flashing away 11km distant. Further to the south you can visit Montenmedio with its outdoor art installations which you can enjoy while walking through peaceful pine forests. If you drive on towards Tarifa, you will come to Bolonia with its impressive Roman ruins which are dominated by fragrant pine forests and a tall sand dune.
Further afield, Cadiz is surrounded by sea on three sides. Its history goes back more than 3000 years. Enjoy walking along narrow streets which suddenly open up into wide plazas with cafes and restaurants.Vejer de la Frontera is a white mountain village with great views and Spanish-Moroccan restaurants. It has city walls and a Moorish castle. Jerez was the birthplace of flamenco and it is also home to the famous sherry bodegas. Tarifa is the southernmost town on the European mainland, situated at the narrowest point of the Straits of Gibraltar. Morocco is easily visible and accessible via a fast ferry. It's a mecca for surfers. Gibraltar is a small piece of Britain situated at the southerly tip of Spain. It's full of history and is a great place for a day out. Its tax free shopping status is a draw for locals and tourists alike, but if you drive, park your car on the Spanish side of the border in La Linea and walk across the border to avoid the queue of cars which can build up.
Conil de la Frontera
The town of Conil has all the facilities you will need including a wide range of shops, supermarkets, restaurants, bars and cafes. The wide, sandy beaches are patrolled by lifeguards during the season and are are for families. They're also popular with surfers and kite- surfers. There is no high-rise development in Conil so you will find that if you walk for a short distance along the beach in either direction, you soon come to sand dunes or sandstone cliffs.There are several eco-tourist sites nearby which preserve the natural habitat for wildlife and plants.
Conil is typically Spanish and in the summer you'll find that Spanish tourists outnumber other nationalities. There are restaurants to suit all tastes and budgets. Fish figures strongly on the menu as you would expect, with local catches available every day. Outside of the town if you travel into the countryside you will find small, family-run restaurants which produce tasty, home-cooked food from ingredients grown on their own smallholdings.
