Local Information on Costa de la Luz and towns in Costa de la Luz

Costa de la Luz local information

The Costa de la Luz (Coast of light) is the western coast of the Andalucía coastline in Spain and faces out to the Atlantic Ocean. The typical beaches on the Costa de la Luz are more expansive and backed by sand dunes and pine trees. The sand is finer and more golden colour than the neighbouring Costa del Sol. The temperatures are slightly milder than the rest of Spain and the often strong Atlantic winds and waves are favoured in Tarifa by wind surfers and surfboarders alike. Cadiz and Sevilla are very ancient cities and Jerez de la Frontera is capital of the sherry world.

Huelva

The actual city of Huelva dates back some 3000 years when it was named Onuba. Later, Huelva prospered under the Cathaginians and Romans who used it as a base for mining. Three of the key sites of the Columbus story can also be found here - Lugares Colombinos. Today Huelva is large, sprawling and industrialised with a population of 141,000.

Jerez de la Frontera

Jerez de la Frontera became famous throughout the world for its sweet wines named after the town, which the British pronounced "sherry". It is called "de la Frontera" because it once stood on the frontier between the Moorish and the Christian realms. Jerez is also famous, throughout the world, for its fine horses and brilliant singers and dancers of flamenco.
