The Costa de la Luz (Coast of Light) is the Western coastline of the province of Andalucia, facing the Atlantic.

It is at the southernmost tip of Europe. The typical beaches are more expansive and sand is finer and a more golden colour than the neighbouring Costa del Sol.

Refreshing evening breezes blow in from North Africa, whose coast is visible from the southern peninsula. With over 300 days of sunshine per year, the climate can best be described as North African climate.


In August, the average maximum daytime temperature is 30.4° C, whilst in January it is 17° C.
