The Costa de la Luz region
The Costa de la Luz is the last remaining unspoilt coastline with crystal clear seas, golden sandy beaches and wide open spaces; a popular destination for Spaniards and foreigners alike. It is literally the 'Coast of Light'. You can wake up and break fast to dazzling sunlight playing on the rippling sea and after a hard day on the beach sip cocktails watching the most amazing sunsets.
Apart from a few rainy days in October/November or March/April, winters are mild with temperatures still reaching 18 degrees C in December and January. In a sheltered spot you can sunbathe year round. A cold day is when the temperature drops to 12 degrees! From May through to September it's warm and sunny with maximum temperatures up to 35 degrees occasionally.
If you enjoy driving, you'll love the traffic free roads and wide open countryside and exploring the many 'White Villages' in their hilltop positions with commanding views all around. Vejer, Benalup, Medina Sidonia and Arcos de La Frontera are all short drives from the coast. Further inland is an area like the Lake District - Sierra de Grazelema - the wettest part of Spain within the Parque de Alcornocales - the most extensive cork oak forest in Europe.
In the old fishing villages like Tarifa, Barbate and Conil tuna fishing takes place every Spring using the exact same methods as the Phoenecians centuries ago.
Everywhere there are signs of the past, best seen at the Roman Ruins in Baelo Claudia and the Moorish castle in Tarifa.
Tarifa is 'The Adventure Capital of Europe' and a mecca for windsurfers and kitesurfers.
There are no English bars and restaurants. No cinema or theatre.
But if you enjoy extreme sports, outdoor pursuits and the simple things in life - walks along the beach or birdwatching in the countryside or whalewatching -and want to get back to nature, you'll love Tarifa, the surrounding area and the people here.
When you're bored with Tarifa, you're probably getting bored with life.
The old town - 'Casco Antiguo' - is a warren of narrow white cobbled streets, opening on to delightful small squares, with a 'Tapas' bar on every corner and restaurants offering the best of local produce. 'Organic' must have been invented here as it's all the local market and spice shops have ever sold.
There's an old Moorish castle, recently renovated, a colourful fishing harbour (no luxury yachts here) but with daily whalewatching trips and regular fast ferries to Tangiers just 35 mins away.
Just a few kms out of town are some of the best and cleanest beaches in Europe with plenty of room for everybody, even in the Summer; with windsurfers, kitesurfers and sunbathers each respecting their zones. No laying out your towels and bagging a sun bed here; there aren't any.
You'll find a guide to all this and more in the property along with the latest copy of Costa de La LUz Vida magazine.
Local activities include golf, tennis, watersports, diving, whalewatching, fishing, birdwatching, horse riding, hiking, rockclimbing, mountain biking, quadbiking, hanggliding and microlite flying .

"A great apartment, excellent location with a huge terrace"
We were met on arrival by the letting agent who explained where everything was and how things worked. The apartment is bright and clean and furnished with good modern fittings.
The location is great, we found a walking route that took less than 10 minutes to reach the entrance to the old town with its charming little streets winding down to the harbour.
This area is where the cafes, bars and restaurants are located and we found many great places to eat at a good range of prices from pizza and gourmet burgers to seafood and excellent steaks and tapas.
The pool is small but clean although we preferred to head to the beach at Los Lances for swimming and to watch the more energetic surfers, windsurfers and kitesurfers, there are also some great beaches about 3-4 Kms from town and really pretty hill villages to explore.
There is a Lidl supermarket on the way into town for supplies and a local supermarkets Dia and Mercadona near the old town.
Tafira has a charm unlike any other place we have visited in Spain and owes much of this to its laidback surfer culture, this lovely apartment is the perfect spot to enjoy the attractions of this unique town.
