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

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.
