Chiclana and the sea
Anyone visiting Cadiz will enjoy getting to know Chiclana de la Frontera, one of the towns on the Bay of Cadiz, very near the city of Cadiz. It is also within the area containing the towns of Rota, Puerto Real, San Fernando, Jerez de la Frontera and Puerto de Santa María, coastal towns for all those who enjoy the sea with a 100% Andalusian flavour.
Its location and its entire infrastructure are designed for living around the waters of the Atlantic. Once there, visitors can take numerous sea excursions to the castle in Sancti Petri, the Bay of Cadiz natural park, the La Barrosa beach where our hotel is located – and much more!
This last beach is one of Spain’s treasures. Known as part of the Costa de la Luz, it is over eight kilometres long and is one of the country’s widest beaches, consisting of heart-warming fine white sand. It’s the favourite place of many sports addicts who enjoy activities such as surfing and stand-up paddle surfing.
It has also become one of the best areas for watching some of the most impressive sunsets, with the immense Atlantic to the right and a view almost to the Strait of Gibraltar when looking to the left.
The two kilometre long Sancti Petri beach is nearby, the second most important in the area. It is separated from the former by the Farallón de Laja Bermeja. At low tide, it’s possible to cross easily from one to the other by walking on the sand. This beach has various areas for enjoying the view of the cliffs, the beautiful breakwater in the Sancti Petri estuary, the virgin beach and the old village, which has a unique charm with its notable traditional fishing flavour.
As well as the sea, don’t forget to see the monuments of great cultural interest when visiting Chiclana – churches such as San Juan Bautista, the Convento de Jesús Nazareno and San Telmo and the Santa Ana hermitage.
All of this makes Chiclana the perfect place to relax by the sea and on its beaches but also to get to know some of the best scenes of the Cadiz panorama.
