Spain's Best Kept Secret?

Some of the best sports in Andalucia - BBC Holiday

Water Sports

Orchards overflowing with orange trees, beaches wide enough to land a jumbo jet, and over 3000 hours of sunshine every year; that is how the BBC Holiday programme described Western Huelva province which is distinguished by it's long Atlantic coastline with miles of unspoilt, and often uncrowded, beaches of golden sand. This forms part of the evocatively named Costa de la Luz (Coast of Light) that continues into Cadiz province, and is a magnet for water sports enthusiasts of all kinds. The highly prized beaches provide an ideal sheltered location for people learning to kitesurf and windsurf - but with the dependable afternoon Atlantic winds they are also regularly used by expert kitesurfers for instruction, and for their own enjoyment. The area also boasts a number of 'Blue Flag' marinas, which cater for expert mariners with boats available for hire, as well as the novice who will be able to take lessons from one of the sailing schools located here.

Golf & Bowls

If your sporting tastes are more land-based, there is still plenty for you to do. Boasting a number of fine golf courses - the Islantilla course has been voted one of the 100 top courses in Europe, and has been graced by the PGA Spanish Open. It makes a spectacular destination for both the experienced and the novice golfer. The course at Isla Canela is built into a natural wildlife reserve and is reputedly one of the most beautiful courses in Europe. Most of the courses have their own golf pro on site, to help you make the best of your stay. In addition to the golf, the area also boasts a number of top quality bowls venues. On the border with Portugal, it offers the opportunity for a golf or bowls group looking to tour clubs away from the well-trodden circuit of the Costa del Sol.

Traditional Andalucia

The Huelva province of Atlantic Andalucia on the Costa de la Luz is one of Europe's best-kept holiday secrets, surprising given the undeniable beauty of the area. It has miles of unspoilt clean beaches and a diverse range of fun activities. Immensely popular with the Spanish, this part of the Costa de la Luz has largely been ignored by the tourist hordes flocking to the 'Costas' and the Balearics and has therefore avoided the explosive tide of tourist developments which that produced. It seems to be an ideal destination for the more discerning 21 st Century traveller, searching for somewhere authentically Spanish.
