To speak of Costa de la Luz, is to speak of a dozen municipalities with many ingredients in common, such as a common history of fishing and agriculture, it's beaches, as well as it's growing tourism rates in the last decades.
A trip around Costa de la Luz, from east to west should start in Tarifa, the tourist capital of Costa de la Luz, and the world capital of windsurf and kitesurf. This city has quintupled in the past years, to the point of reaching a total collapse as far as lodging accomodations is concerned. From Tarifa, we can travel to Atlanterra, still in it's own municipality, and Zahara de los Atunes, who has grown into the outskirts of Barbate, a small fishing town, that has not lost it's traditional ways even with the recent growth in tourism levels. Caños de Meca, and El Palmar, located in Vejer are the two locations you'll run into next, one is known for it's 80's hippy revolution, and the other is known as the surf meca of Andalucía. Conil, Chiclana, El Puerto de Santa Maria, Sanlucar de Barrameda, and Chipiona are localities known for fishing, wine, and agricultural traditions, who within the past years have seen how tourism has become just as important.
Costa de la Luz onubense, on the other hand, is a coastline that has seen a fast growing rate of tourism, due to tourists trying to escape the overmassification of Costa del Sol, and other certain areas of the coast of Cadiz.
