: Faro & Seville
Costa de la Luz is one of Spain's best kept secrets with miles of unspoilt blue ribbon beaches backed with pine forests & sand dunes. Water sports are popular and south west facing coast provides fabulous sunsets. Other activities nearby include birdwatching at the local lake & nature reserve, horse riding, racing at the karting circuit or cooling down in the summer at the water park. For some true Spanish culture and architecture, visit some of the many small towns and villages or spend a day in Seville. Other excursions include boats trip us the river guardiana between Spain & Portugal, the Rio Tinto Mining Museum or a foot ferry to the sand spit (La Flecha) opposite Nuevo Portil.
For golfers there are many excellent courses within an hours easy drive for players of all abilities. Green fees are often half the prices found in Portugal and courses are much quieter.
This is a fabulous area for families & couples seeking lovely beaches, golf or just some relaxing sunshine.
Other Activities: Bird watching, karting, water park (seasonal)
Golf: Costa Esuri: Two courses West and East. The West is a long course but easy walking with some stunning views of the bridge linking Spain and Portugal over the Guadiana river and the natural marshland. It is a riverside parkland course with a real links feel. It is intended that it will host tour events but the fairways are wide and fair. The East is designed with holiday golf in mind with seven lakes. Despite being on a large development the courses have a very natural feel to them.
Dunas de Doñana: Dunas de Doñana Golf Club is located at the southern end of one of the most important national parks in Europe, La Cota de Doñana, and close to the Atlantic Ocean. This location provides a real golfing gem with challenging holes well protected in many cases with water and bunkering.
