Compact, easy to get around, good places to eat, nice marina and within easy reach of places to visit. Not culturally interesting but very good as a beach holiday destination.

Costa de la Luz reviews

Beautiful wide sandy beach, clean and well maintained. Can swim in the sea but there are also pools formed when the tide goes out which makes for safe bathing for small children.
