Costa de la Luz

Costa de la Luz [ kosta de la luθ ] (Spanish for " coast of light " ) refers to the southern Spanish Atlantic coast in the Gulf of Cádiz between the Spanish- Portuguese border formed by the Guadiana River near the town of Huelva and the southernmost tip of Spain (and hence of mainland Europe ) at Tarifa.
