The province of Cadiz is very diverse and contains numerous places which are well worth a visit, from the countryside around Jerez de la Frontera to the villages in Campo de Gibraltar, or you can take a tour of the white villages and stop to relax somewhere along the coast between Tarifa and Sanlúcar de Barrameda.
And all this without forgetting the capital of the region, which holds within its walls the culture and the traditions which set the city –and its people– apart. Don’t think twice, Cadiz is the perfect destination for your holidays.
The Costa de la Luz is one of the longest coasts, with more than 200 km of stunning beaches with fine, golden sands exposed to the Atlantic Ocean. Costa de la Luz is aptly named due to the bright, vivid light that highlights the comeliness of its streets, the whitewash of its walls, the golden hue of the dunes and the reflection of the sea. There are coastal towns dotted along the coastline, where you can sample a cuisine that mainly features fish and seafood: Sanlúcar, also famous for its horse races along the beach, Rota, Chipiona, Conil de la Frontera, El Puerto de Santa María and Chiclana de la Frontera. Discover all of the beauty of the towns on the Costa de la Luz.
This is the southernmost province on the Iberian peninsula, and is only 14 km. from Africa. It borders the provinces of Seville and Huelva in the north, the province of Malaga to the east, the Atlantic Ocean in the southwest, the Mediterranean Sea in the southeast, and the Strait of Gibraltar and the British colony of Gibraltar in the south.
Its 260 kilometres of Atlantic coastline feature long beaches with fine sand, many of them undeveloped and not excessively exploited for tourism. The whole coast is part of the Costa de la Luz.
