Endless white sand... great to swim and stroll along... areas of guarded swimming other areas for surfers and other water sports... more people on the northern section go south to be more isolated... clothing appears optional the further south you go.... intricate lava rock formation towards the south ... a number of bar restaurants along the beach

Highest point in Chiclana. Wonderful views over Chiclana to San Fernando. Interesting historical facts and landmarks highlighted. Well worth the steep climb.

Thoroughly enjoyed my visit to Cadiz and the bay. The city was so interesting and buzzing.. In the tranquil bay there was a series of lagoons where you can watch masses of flamingos in flight and numerous wading birds. A place where bird watchers could spend their full holiday.

Beautiful church, welcoming atmosphere and a very friendly congregation.
Been there fo many Sunday masses. One particular priest there has an amazing singing voice who gets the entire congregation singing which makes the mass a very "enjoyable" experience. I would highly recommend a Sunday morning visit if you feel you need an "uplift"

A very worth (free) attraction, with leaflets in multiple languages to explain the exhibits (which are otherwise all in Spanish). Had never really appreciated how sea salt was harvested before! No free wine sampling (when we visited anyway).

Un buen lugar para poder usar wifi sin restricciones y donde puedes pedir libros sobre historia local. Aspecto de mejora: mayor silencio
