Costa de la Luz are a world away from its Costa cousins. Stretching from Ayamonte neighboring Portugal’s Algarve, although exposed, the beaches are not as windswept as the Cadiz section of the coast. The shoreline is punctuated by small fishing ports and modern resorts popular with mainly Spanish visitors. These resorts are separated by marshes and river estuaries, making travelling rather circuitous.

Staying in one of the beach resorts of Isla Canela, Islantilla or Isla Cristina you’ll find yourself well placed for dozens of golf courses – some of them across the Guadiana River in Portugal. Or try out some of the Algarve’s best beaches, visit Cadiz, Huelva or one of the innumerable peaceful whitewashed summit villages in the region.

Here may be less golfing options, but the green fees are relatively reasonably priced in this southern region of Spain. Since it is only forty-five minutes’ drive from Faro airport, the area is best accessed from Portugal. Being close to the Algarve, you get the choice of even more championship courses, and a good selection of reasonably priced accommodation.

From here it is an easy day trip to the more popular courses nearby.
