Chiclana de la Frontera

PlayaChiclana is surrounded not only by some of the best beaches in Spain, pinewoods and salt marshes on the Costa de la Luz. The marshes have a high ecological value, which are part of the protected area known as the Natural Park of the Bay of Cádiz; the long sandy beaches have favoured the development of high-quality tourism; the pinewoods alongside the coast of Chiclana are the ideal complement for the beaches. The sea and the countryside plus tourism still seem to be in perfect harmony.

The urban centre of Chiclana is six kilometres from the coast and has all public services, good public transport, cultural and historic values, etc. It also offers important tourist attractions: markets, handicrafts, wine cellars, restaurants, bars, etc.

The Urbanisation of Novo Sancti Petri has become popular over recent years but is unspoilt by the mass tourism. The Hotels of Novo Sancti Petri are some of the finest on the Costa del la Luz, most of which carry the five star award.

La BarrosaChiclana benefits from a mild climate and temperatures without sharp oscillations with very little seasonal changes, little rain and more than 3,000 hours of sun a year.

Chiclana is a traditional town, with good wines and medicinal waters "Springs of Fuente Amarga". Its urban structure is of a typical Andalusian style, with narrow streets and courtyards full of flowers. Chiclana preserves the most genuine customs and traditions of Lower Andalusia: the processions, bullfighting, flamenco, wine production, the snacks at noon... are present in the daily life of its inhabitants. The people are some of the friendliest you will ever come across, warm and welcoming. Their love of children and the family pays dividends to their laid back way of life.

Once you have visited this town and the area I can guarantee you will want to return.

The whole of the Costa de la Luz is a breath of fresh air compared to the usual developments associated with Spain. It has been developed on a more human scale than the Costa del Sol and local towns and resorts retain their Spanish culture and character.
La Barrosa Beach has golden and white sands and is considered one of the best beaches in Spain. It stretches for miles and there is plenty of space for everyone even in the height of the season. Deep and wide, stretching for miles you don't suffer the high rise development of so many tourist resorts, fantastic if you want a relaxing holiday as you will always find a peaceful spot. There are good restaurants, shops and bars along the beach front.
If you want to spend your holiday in real Spain then the Costa de la Luz is the place to come.


Sancti Petri

Sancti Petri

This is an old, abandoned fishing village located at the northern end of the Playa de la Barrosa. It adjoins the Bay of Cádiz Natural Park and has a wonderful 2 km. beach which faces a little island of the same name. Steeped in history and legend, the little island of Sancti Petri has been linked with Hercules. An ancient temple to Hercules once stood on the headland. And according to myth, two of Hercules' 12 works were performed here.

Here is where you will find a fishing port and marina, sailing and windsurfing schools and various bars and restaurants.
