Ten minutes from Tarifa on the southern tip of Spain’s Costa de la Luz, Playa de Los Lances is a 3km stretch of beach stretching west from the town’s outskirts. As the beach reaches the sand dunes, the Hotel Arte Vida’s terrace and chill-out bar emerges beyond the camber. Restaurant favourites include fresh tuna carpaccio and grilled daily catch, but the bar is the big attraction, coaxing scores of sunbathers and kiteboarders from the beach as the sun sets. And once the party is over, each of the hotel’s simple but stylish rooms opens on to a veranda facing the sea – an ideal spot for a nightcap.
