Secluded Shores

Playa de Castilnovo, Conil de la Frontera, Andalucia, Spain.

With its quiet, natural beaches, Spain’s Costa de la Luz is a far cry from many Mediterranean regions and their overdevelopment issues.

An unspoilt beach is probably nothing you would expect to find next to well-established tourist destination. Well, the Playa de Castilnovo in the province of Cádiz is such a rare thing. Separated from the city of Conil de la Frontera only by river Rio Salado (during low tide it is easily crossed by foot), the place is devoid of any service, promenade, or direct car access.
