The infinite beaches of Costa de la Luz, lined by pine groves, form an
arch from Ayamonte to Tarifa, from the mouth of the Guadiana River to
the Strait of Gibraltar.
Costa de la Luz comprises sun and sand; the rivers flow in channels
before reaching the sea; water and earth combine in the swamps,
estuaries and salt mines. Its name comes from a bright, vivid light
that highlights the comeliness of its streets, the whitewash of its
walls, the golden hue of the dunes and the reflection of the silver
sea, the only greyish tint in this land of colour. Inland you will find
varied landscapes of wild sierras, fertile countryside, pastures of
fighting bulls, world-renowned vineyards and hidden villages where time
passes slowly by. Spring brings with it an explosion of flowers,
fiestas and processions; winter, mild and sunny, attracts millions of
birds to the area.
