Costa de la Luz goes throughout long beaches between the mouth of the Guadiana river (that borders on Portugal) and the Guadalquivir river. A series of beaches as attractive as different. There you find from beaches equipped with all services and hotels close to the beach in Huelva, to more deserted, and even pristine, areas.
Among the most outstanding beaches in Huelva, you find for example Isla Canela. It is a fishing village in the south of Ayamonte, next to the Spanish bank of the Guadiana river. It is composed of seven kilometres of marshes, dunes, small rivers and sand areas, typical of the Andalusian coast. People seeking accommodation in this area will find a good offer of hotels in Ayamonte near to the beach.
Another important beach is Punta del Moral, a municipal district of Ayamonte situated in Isla Canela. Its main hallmark is being separated from the hotel complexes by a small river. This is the reason why it is one of the less crowded beaches in Huelva and, actually, is almost pristine.
Isla Cristina is a locality in Huelva where ten different beaches are situated, all of them beautiful, with the so characteristic fine white sand of the Huelva coast. Most of them are very comfortable and perfectly equipped.
On the other hand, it is worth mentioning the Islantilla beach which belongs to the Isla Cristina and Lepe municipalities. It has 1.3 kilometres of fine white sand. It possesses some pristine zones and other areas equipped with the necessary services.
Next to it, we find La Antilla beach, which belongs to the Lepe municipality and has an area of 3.5 kilometres. Both the Islantilla and La Antilla beach are characterised for being so wide and having amazing dunes.
Another of the most important beaches in Huelva is Matalascañas. It is a beach with family atmosphere within the municipality of Almonte and borders the Doñana National Park. It goes throughout more than four kilometres of coast. It has a built-up area equipped with all the services, where there are plenty of hotels close to the beach in Matalascañas. Nevertheless, as you go into the Doñana Park, you notice a more deserted and mysterious area.
Matalascañas is probably one of the tourist enclaves with more beach hotels in Huelva. This area is also very famous for its amazing sand dunes range and for the remains of La Higuera Tower that you can still see in the seashore.
