Furthermore the fascinating inland includes the Sherry vineyards of Jerez and the trail of the White Villages and Bullfighting Routes located in the fabulous Cadiz mountain range in the midst of the intriguing Grazalema Nature reserve.

Costa de la Luz is everything from first-rate urban beaches like La Victoria in the city of Cadiz or La Barrosa in Chiclana through to virgin beaches in El Puerto de Santa Maria, Los Caños de Meca or Zahara de los Atunes in Barbate just to mention some.

There is a wide range of fish and shellfish including the local langoustines from Sanlúcar, fried marinated dogfish, the sea bream à la roteña the gilthead sea bream baked in salt clams with noodles tiny shrimp omelets and numerous other dishes which are better to try than to describe.
