Seascapes & Landscapes

Our beaches belong to the most beautiful of Spain - if not Europe! The water is very clean, the beaches are not over-populated and very natural.

The bathing-season starts in May until October, the water temperatures can reach 26°C in the high season, July and August, and is around 22°C in Spring and Fall (Mai, October). During the winter months is drops to about 18°C.

Although the Coast of the Light has become a popular travel destination, the beaches remain fairly untouched. There are some steep, rocky coastlines between Los Caños and Conil and a wonderful 15-km-long sandy beach, which is ideal for swimming, surfing, windsurfing, kite-surfing or horse-riding - depending on the weather and wind situation.

Due to the Levante, a dry wind from the East that can sweep along the coast for days like a storm, the Costa de la Luz never was a typical vacation and beach destination for tourists. All the more, nature lovers love it here for riding, surfing, bird-watching and hiking.

From the middle of July until the end of August, this area becomes a preferred vacation place for people from Cádiz, Jerez, Seville and Madrid. For the rest of the year it is a quiet and very rural area, with hills, fields, pine forests and many dirt roads.

We are actively involved in Ocean protection and organize beach cleanups and information evenings on a regular basis. More about the Oceans on one of the following pages
