Costa De La Luz Weather
Due to its southerly location, the Costa de la Luz climate is not as extreme as that of other Mediterranean resorts. The summer temperatures are often hot, but the breeze from the sea allows ideal tanning conditions without the side affects of those hourly trips to and from the ice cream kiosk!
However, the Costa de la Luz also flourishes in winter, during which time the temperatures are distinctly mild. Indeed, the town of Huelva is renowned for its winter strawberries! This year long warmth means more than just off season fruit however, as it allows you to escape the bleak British weather for a sunny break, without having to brave the crush of the summer school holidays!
Holidays to the Costa de la Luz in the off peak months often surface the cheapest deals, and last minute breaks are frequent. So for your Costa de la Luz holiday, keep on the lookout - you never know when the next one might come along!
The Costa de la Luz landscape is something to behold. On first glance, it is the beaches which stand out, with 300km of golden coastline to choose from! Beaches such as Conil de la Frontera and Bolonia are perfect for a relaxing day of tanning, and the relatively unspoilt landscape only adds to the tranquil feel of the area.
However, the unusually high numbers of rivers and lakes in the area also allow for a wide expanse of greenery, relatively unheard of in southern Spain! Nature Reserves such as the Coto Donana are the best places to experience such natural beauty, with many being home to local birds and other wildlife. Whichever you choose, a Costa de la Luz holiday is the perfect way to grab a week or two of relaxation with the family.
