The Costa Esuri Andalucian Village is located close to Ayamonte and overlooks the Guadiana River in the area which is known as Costa de La Luz. This traditional residential development has been meticulously planned around two 18 hole golf courses, one of which is a championship course. Costa de la Luz is a piece of authentic Andalucia which the Spanish have been keeping to themselves. The area is typified by its beautiful sandy beaches, all year round sunshine, natural surroundings and unspoiled towns. The central Andalucian government have responsible plans for this part of Spain. There is a large national park in the area, which has strict rules in place to prevent over development of another Costa. It attracts the more discerning kind of tourist. With more sunshine and less rainfall than the Costa de la Sol, this undiscovered area is Spain’s best kept secret.
Costa Esuri is extremely well connected through Faro and Seville international airports, both of which are within easy travelling distance although a car is recommended. See the Directions Page
Ayamonte is the nearest town to Costa Esuri, being only around a 5 minute drive from the Apartment. Its largest supermarket and shopping complex is located on the outskirts of the town with ample parking suitable for stocking up for your holiday.
Located on the banks of the Guadiana river, bordering on Portugal, Ayamonte is a fishing port which has an excellent market selling fish caught locally, together with fresh fruit and local produce.
The Greek called it Anapotaman (“over the river”), which evolved into the town’s present name. In the tallest point of the city, on top of the ruins of an ancient Roman castle, stands the Parador de Turismo (Inn), with beautiful views of the town and the Guadiana river mouth. Among the most interesting buildings we must point out the churches of Nuestra Señora de las Angustias and San Francisco, both from the 16th century; the parish church of Salvador, from the 15th century; and the Nabob houses.
The centre of town is a car free zone, making it a pleasant experience for tourists to wander through the narrow streets and plazas which are lined with interesting cafes and shops. There is a frequent car ferry service available in the port taking tourists across the Guadiana River to Villa Real San Antonio, Portugal.
Five kilometres away from the town of Ayamonte are the beaches of Isla Canela and Isla del Moral, both of which are very popular, especially during the summer. There are other excellent beaches all along the coast including Islantilla. All the beaches are long and wide very suitable for families with young children The beaches are so spacious and they are not crowded at most times of the year.
Across the bridge into Portugal there are numerous beaches along the Eastern Algarve with Monte Gordo being the nearest at approximately 10 miles from the apartment
