Costa de la Luz is definitely at its busiest and buzzing best during the summer period which lasts from Spring until Autumn. Temperatures tend to reach the high 20s and even the lower 30s on most days throughout the summer months. Prices are usually a little bit cheaper outside of these months from Autumn to Spring, although temperatures do fall away into the lower teens. There is much more to do in summer though - especially with the number of beaches that the area has and sights that there are to see - so we recommend a trip then.
Over the last 20 years or so, this stretch of coastline has become a water sports enthusiast’s paradise with surfing, windsurfing and kitesurfing just some of the activities available. The best places to head to for these are the beaches around Tarifa, especially Playa Los Lances and Playa de Valdevaqueros. Many people spend most of their days on the beach in the Costa de la Luz but there are other significant sights to see as well. For example, on the seashore at Lugares Colombinos you will find the place where Christopher Columbus planned and set off on his explorations in 1492.
The accommodation options across the Costa de la Luz are varied and you will find something to suit all budgets and preferences. Cheap hotels, luxury hotel complexes, fancy villas, apartments and B&Bs are all the choices that you will find along the coast. Generally speaking though, the accommodation in this part of the world is on the more modest end of the spectrum compared to other ‘Costas’. The same is true for dining out, with plenty of options from cuisines all over the world, although you will find it leaning more towards the traditional Spanish side of things.
