Where to Stay on a Golf Trip to Costa de la Luz

By: Golfshake Editor | Thu 11 Jul 2019


The Costa de la Luz remains a relatively undiscovered part of southern Spain. Blessed with a temperate climate and more hours of sunshine per year than any other part of the mainland, it is fast becoming a haven for golfers and their families.

There is an impressive choice of hotels, catering for families, groups and couples. You will find everything from self-catering to small and intimate family-run hotels to luxurious five-star hotels, all catering for golfers. Most are located next to sandy beaches and many have golf courses on site.

Here, we look at a few of the best.
