Costa de Luz

Find Your camper paradise

Almost 300 sunny days a year, Spain’s far south-west lives up to its name, the coast of light. Costa de la Luz is located on the Andalusian Atlantic Coast and running from the border of Portugal in Huelva to Tarifa in Cádiz. Kilometers and kilometers of white sand, old walled towns packed with medieval churches, Arabic forts, watchtowers, palaces, bodegas, beach bars…

For more adventurous campers, this is a real paradise, because this coast of south west Spain is not so overdeveloped yet and offers plenty of great camper spots to explore. There are also several top quality nature reserves with a rich variety of wildlife, white villages & towns and many historical sites. Despite its great popularity, the Costa de la Luz still offers true Andalusian flair, tranquility, and stunning natural surroundings.

Unlike the Spanish Mediterranean coast, the Costa de la Luz is practically virgin and little exploited by mass tourism.

The main attraction of the Costa de la Luz are its beaches. Stretching 300 km along the Atlantic coast, the sandy beaches are endless and often very quiet, some of them are even overlooking the African coast. The Costa de la Luz also offers the best conditions for sailing, water sports, surfing and paragliding, thanks to the good wind and the mild climate that allows you to enjoy the sea at any time of the year. Even though off – season overnight parking is tolerated on some beach parking lots, always check for local conditions.
