Known for its beautiful light, golden sands, and mild temperatures, the Costa de la Luz faces the Atlantic Ocean and is punctuated by west facing towns which feature pretty recreational beaches, and harbours with their quaint fishing boats which rise and fall to the rhythm of the tides.
The city of Cadiz is situated on a narrow spit of land which is surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean along the Costa de la Luz and is the oldest continuously inhabited city in Spain.
A small natural harbour at Playa de la Caleta which is protected by a breakwater leading to the island bound Castle of San Sebastian is a safe haven for the colourful fishing boats which ply the waters of the Atlantic either for recreation or commerce.
Cafes which line the sandy shores offer alfresco dining and a front row seat to enjoy the beauty of a Costa de la Luz sunset.
