A scenic Costa de la Luz holiday with views over the striking Flecha del Rompido sandbar - includes travel and optional all-inclusive board
Andalucia’s Costa de la Luz, so called due to its bedazzling sunlight and overwhelming feeling of freedom, remains somewhat of an undiscovered gem and haven for nature-lovers. Garden Playanatural Hotel & Spa, situated at the mouth of Cartaya’s Rio Piedras estuary, gazes across the water towards La Flecha del Rompido – a unique nine-mile sandbank flanked by beaches on both sides and home to undulating sand dunes.
Surrounded by pine trees, the hotel is a sparkling white affair that overlooks lush green, flower-filled gardens. Beyond are the calm waters of the estuary (ideal for swimming), which gently lap its protected sands. Many guests choose to laze by one of the hotel’s tranquil split-level swimming pools, where there are also a number of Balinese beds that offer blissful respite from the intense midday sun.
This is a place where time seems to stand still, and you can pass many a happy hour contemplating the natural splendour before you. Wind down even further with a session in the spa, where you can enjoy a sauna or indulge in a massage. Further afield, discover your own private hideaway on La Flecha’s sands, stroll the nearby nature reserve or take to the water and sail along the channels that criss-cross the marshland. Evenings are often livened up a tad when the hotel hosts fun entertainment and shows.
