The Costa de la Luz (Coast of Light) stretches from Spain and Europe's southernmost tip north up to the Portuguese border. Considering how over-developed the rest of Spain's coastline is, it's an astonishingly unspoilt and wild part of the country.

It begins at the increasingly trendy town of Tarifa, famous for its wind- and kite-surfers, passes the Roman ruins of Baelo Claudia, some unpretentious fishing towns, Cádiz, and continues beyond the vast wetlands of the Doñana National Park.
