Activities

Break Luz in Chiclana —life is beachy on the Costa de la Luz

Chiclana de la Frontera is one of Andalucia's most popular beach resorts. At its heart is Playa de la Barrosa, a 4-mile sweep of blonde sands, fringed by dunes and lapped by the Mediterranean Sea. Although popular with families, it's also great for the many sports enthusiasts who flock to Costa de la Luz. There are several watersports centers near the beach, which offer waterskiing, sailing, and surfing instruction. In summer, Playa de la Barossa has lifeguards and sunlounger rental, as well as plenty of beach bars to kick back in and watch the sunset over the Mediterranean.

Summer sizzles in this Andalucian beach resort

It's also when Chiclana de la Frontera vacation rentals are at a premium. For the best choice, visit in the shoulder seasons of late spring and early fall, when the temperature is still pleasantly warm, but the crowds have left.
