Spanish beaches are known to be little slices of heaven on earth and Costa de La Luz or “Coast of light” in English is not far from the same.
Aside from crystal clear Atlantic waters and pristine beaches, Costa de La Luz has lots more to offer:
1. No Fish and Chips Here
Simple, rural, and laid-back -This is how locals describe the way of life in Costa de La Luz. Everything is cheaper: the food, cost of living, and even land properties. Lots of tourists from nearby European countries such as the UK and Germany permanently move to neighboring Spain and into Costa de La Luz to experience a simple life closer to nature. I wouldn’t be surprised if you choose Costa de La Luz to be your future home!
2. A Great Place to Discover One’s Self
The slow pace of life and serene environment in Tarifa, the southernmost coastal city of Spain along Costa de La Luz attracts artists, hippies, surfers, and bohemians. This makes Tarifa a cultural melting pot which seem to create a free-spirited culture all of its own.
3. Best Seafood in Spain
According to gourmets, the best sea foods come from the Atlantic Ocean. This is true for the local fish markets at Costa de La Luz offers a wide variety of freshly caught sumptuous sea foods. Indulge yourself to delicious Mediterranean and Spanish dishes while sipping dry white wine surrounded by the rhythmic sound of the sea. Simply relaxing, isn’t it?
4. Celebrate, Study, and Explore In Paradise
The port province of Cádiz in Costa de La Luz has been occupied by the largest empires in history so it’s literally filled with historic places. Be sure not to miss the colorful and crazy Cadiz Carnival Andalucia held every February. Also a University City, you might want to check out the Universidad de Cádiz which specializes in medicine and marine sciences.
5. It’s all natural
Also located in Cadiz Province is the small seaside village of Los Caños de Meca. The little modern development makes it a mecca for nudists from all over Europe. Not only that; the unspoiled natural wonders and open spaces make the eastern part of Los Caños de Meca an ideal camping and hiking spot.
