Costa de la Luz (Cadiz)
The "Costa de la Luz" is the western part of the Andalusian coast that extends from the river ' Guadalquivir ' to Tarifa, on the palate of the Mediterranean Sea. The "Costa de la Luz" or the "Coast of Light" owes its name to the bright sunlight reflected on the sea and its beautiful white beaches. The most famous coastal towns are El Puerto de Santa Maria, Cadiz (the oldest city in Europe), Chiclana, Conil and Barbate.
In this waves rich wonderland, hidden between the coasts of southern Portugal and the north of Marroco, you can find several good beach breaks and some excellent reefs and point breaks. The mild winter temperatures, 3000 hours of sunshine per year and good waves, make the "Costa de la Luz" one of Europe's most popular surfing destinations! The most consistent period for good waves runs from October to March, when big storms over the Atlantic provide long powerful waves up to 3 meters. From April to September the waves are smaller, which makes it ideal for novice surfers. The most famous surf spots are the famous beach break of ' El palmar ', the reef breaks of ' canos de Meca ' and the mystical Point break of ' Yerbabuena '!

In the summer months (July, August & September) It is mostly between 25 °c and 32 °c, in the winter months (December, January and February) it is colder (around 15 °c) and in the spring and autumn the temperatures fluctuate around 20 °c.
