Location The Costa de la Luz is a section of the Andalusian coast in Spain facing the Atlantic. Aside from the beaches and the sunshine, there are ample opportunities and facilities for leisure activities, like fine dining, golf, kite surfing, boating, and other water sports. The Costa de la Luz is especially noted for the beauty of its protected natural reserves and a number of first-rate natural attractions. Among them are the Doñana National Park, where endangered species, such as the Spanish Imperial Eagle, also known as Adalbert’s Eagle (Aquila adalberti), and the Iberian Lynx (Felis pardina), can occasionally be sighted.
The other ones are the picturesque Bay of Cádiz; the steeply-pitched shorelines of the southern section of the Andalusian coastline; the salt marshes of Barbate and the seaside cliffs at La Breña (both within the La Breña y Marismas del Barbate Natural Park); and the sprawling wetlands at the mouths of the rivers Tinto and Odiel, where there is a profusion of water fowl and, in season, other migratory birds, including storks and flamingos.
