The beaches of this coast - "the coast of light" - in southwestern Andalusia are defined by endless dunes of fine gold sand, many surrounded by pine woods, and where the sun is visible almost all day long as the name suggests. It stretches along the coastal areas of the provinces of Huelva and Cadiz, between Ayamonte and Tarifa, from the mouth of the Guadiana River as far as the Strait of Gibraltar.
Here you will find protected natural areas of incomparable beauty, such as Doñana and the cliffs of Barbate, as well as important cultural destinations including the ruins of Baelo Claudia and historical places from the story of Columbus. There are spectacular beaches such as Matalascañas and Los Lances, remote whitewashed villages, coastal towns and, inland, the most varied landscapes: rugged mountains, fertile countryside, pasturelands where the Spanish fighting bulls roam, vineyards... a host of natural delights alongside the Atlantic Ocean.
