Our La Luz Lodge is located in El Palmar, Andalusia, 50km south of Cadiz. It´s the southernmost region of Spain, the Moroccan coast lies within eyeshot. El Palmar is a quiet and comfortable village with miles of pristine sandy beach. Within walking distance lies the famous Cape Trafalgar with its lighthouse.
The area is called Costa de la Luz (“Coast of Light “) and it is famous for its proximity to Africa, the Moorish heritage and its white villages. Here Columbus started his travels to discover the “new world” and the first Spanish constitution was written. Cadiz is said to be the oldest city in Europe, Jerez is the birthplace of sherry, Seville the hotbed of flamenco and Tarifa is the closest European point to the African continent. All these cities are only 30-90 minutes away from our La Luz Lodge.
In El Palmar you find some beach bars, cafes, surf shops and super markets. Right next to El Palmar you find the picturesque fishing village of Conil de la Frontera with its typical old town center. 10 km away, high above a gorge lies Vejer de la Frontera. It is said that this “lookout to the sea” is the most Arab embossed and most beautiful white village of Andalusia.
