Costa de la Luz

Playa de la Barrosa, Chiclana da la Frontera, Costa de la Luz, Spain.

The Costa de la Luz in southern Spain spans from the Strait of Gibraltar to the Guadiana River on the border with Portugal. Its 300 km of coastline offers a wide variety of white sandy beaches to suit all tastes. Good examples are the popular La Barrosa beach in Chiclana de la Frontera, the more remote and much quieter Bolonia beach, and the sandy stretches around Tarifa, especially its Playa de Valdevaqueros.

If you are looking for a hip surfer environment, Tarifa’s Playa de Valdevaqueros or El Palmar beach may be your first choice. The widest range of middle-class hotels, restaurants, and beach bars can be found at Chiclana’s La Barrosa beach.
