Conil de la Frontera is to be found on the beautiful Costa de la Luz in Cadiz province, the South West of Andalucia. This region is renowned for its unspoilt beaches, white hillside villages and the fascinating cities of Cadiz, Jerez de la Frontera and Seville. Conil de la Frontera, in common with much of the Costa de la Luz, has managed to avoid the pitfalls of mass tourism and provides a taste of the real Andalucia for the independent traveller. Perched on the edge of a 15km stretch of beach, it combines the beauty of a white hillside village with the charm of a traditional fishing village. As part of Cadiz province's 'Plan Trafalgar', development is limited and buildings are restricted to three or four floors. Please click here for more information about Conil.Food and Entertainment
