Your Guided Group Holiday To Costa de la Luz

Relax with us and experience a laid back sun holiday in Spain; Costa de la Luz is renowned for its beaches and pleasant climate. Our hotel will be ideally based to see more of this fascinating, vibrant region of Andalucía. Before setting off to discover the New World, Christopher Columbus planned his voyage in Costa de La Luz and we’ll learn more about this famous explorer at the Muelle de las Carabelas. We’ll also take a trip across the border to Tavira, a delightful and historic Portuguese town. There will also be ample leisure time for us to relax on the beach or visit other seaside towns.

Islantilla or Punta Umbria

Guided Walking Tour of Islantilla or Punta Umbria

Watch Icon Full Day

Costa de la Luz is a lesser-known part of Andalucia, characterised by golden beaches, natural scenery and undiscovered local villages, a far cry from busier resorts found further along the Spanish coasts. Discover what the area beside your hotel has to offer with a guided short walking tour where you can become familiar with its bars, shops and restaurants, as well as any nearby activities. The afternoon will be free to spend at your leisure. This is a great opportunity to try out some of the local tapas bars that you discovered on your morning walk.
