Costa de la Luz: Golf Courses

Golf region Costa de la Luz
The westernmost part of the Costa del Sol on the Bay of Cadiz, also known as "Costa de la Luz", stretches from the lower course of the Guadiana river, the border of Spain with Portugal, to Gibraltar. The Strait of Gibraltar geologically separates the Mediterranean Sea from the Atlantic Ocean; however, the weather and climate is almost the same as in the neighbouring Eastern Algarve (Sotavento). The golf courses of the Costa de la Luz are located on the Guadiana near Ayamonte and in the regions Huelva, Cadiz and Seville.
