COSTA DE LA LUZ: TOP tips

Hotels: "The Very Best"
Hotels with excellent location, directly at the wide sand beaches, surrounded by gardens and offering splendid views. Along the Costa de la Luz there are many design-hotels, several of them close to golf courses, marinas, or natural preserves. In this database you find Hotels in the Coast of Cadiz or Coast of Huelva with discounts of up to 65%.
Eat: "Fish"
Gastronomically, the Costa de la Luz offers numerous fish-specialities. Here are a few you should not miss: cooked seafood: shrimp, crabs, lobsters; "pescaitos fritos", dipped in flour and fried in oil: boquerones (anchovies), pijotas, acedías; grilled fish: sardines, seabream, tuna, swordfish; mussels: coquinas, clams; this list might go on and on - and everything tastes delicious!
Travel in: "September"
The outside temperatures are still like in summer, but the water temperature is at its warmest in September. And since many tourists are gone by this time, many beaches are lonely and you have them just for you - this luxury can be rarely experienced elsewhere!
Don't miss: "In Huelva"
Apart from the coast, there are two attractions you really should not miss: the National Park Doñana, one of the most important natural parks of all Europe, and La Rábida, the port from which Columbus set off for his first trip to America.
Don't miss: "In Cádiz"
Not to be missed is a trip to Jerez de la Frontera with a visit to one of the famous bodegas (wine cellars), followed by wine tasting. Also worth seeing in Jerez are the dancing horses in the Riding School "Real Escuela Andaluza del Arte Ecuestre" and the dancing flamenco artists in the tablaos of the city. If you like eating fish and seafood you should in any case try a "mariscada" in Puerto de Santa María.
Lonely: "beaches"
