Playa de Costa Ballena

Reviewed By manidezed

It is a long and quite beach. My family and I are enjoying it so much! It is nearly November and we've been having a temperature of 25 C degrees must of the days. We are so happy to be by the beach everyday!

Camino Natural de Rota

Reviewed By AlxCdog - Norfolk, Virginia

I have taken this trail many times so I wanted to be able to share my experience too. The Nature trail can also be ran if that is what you like to do. The trail starts on the boarder of Rota and runs through Costa Ballena and then into Chipiona. There are two Bridges that you will come across which are very challenging but very doable or you can walk your bike up. The trail does need some work done on it in regards to the grass and weeds that are growing onto the path but it is still a great ride. The trail has certain points that you can stop and do some nature watching. Recommend taking plenty of water if you plan on traveling the trail all the way through. When you get into Chipiona you will eventually come the beach which is very nice. I usually stop in Chipiona to get a small bite to eat with freshly squeezed orange juice. I hope you enjoy, I did.

Castillo de Luna

Reviewed By Szlachcic - Buckinghamshire England

A small castle where we could only see on the ground floor. No charge for admission and only a quick visit necessary. We were not allowed up stairs where, from Reading other comments, others were able to do so. Perhaps that was why we were not charged for admission. We were there on a Monday when a lot of other places are closed.

Los Corrales de Rota

Reviewed By Carlos J. M - Seville, Spain

Infraestructura Antigua para pesca artesanal. Recomiendo ir andando desde Costa Ballena por la playa con marea baja. Con la marea alta no se ven bien.

Jardin Botanico Celestino Mutis

Reviewed By angel1london - london

This is a beautiful ,informative tropical Gardens in the small town of Rota near Cadiz.the main attraction though is the native colony of chameleons that live in the trees.if you ask an attendant they will take you on a tour of discovery to find the creatures in their habitat.Andrea the Chameleon lady was so helpful and enthusiastic but unfortunately soon to retire.even with limited communication,this was a magical visit ,and the protected dunes and beach behind the pines is also worth a look.

Parque de los Lagos

Reviewed By acepaAndalucia - andalucia

Es un parque que tiene unos lagos con bastantes aves, el paseo es agradable pero tampoco tiene más. Si vas en verano, para pasear al atardecer, porque tampoco hay muchas sombras.

El Bucarito

Reviewed By Emma A - El Puerto de Santa Maria, Spain

Have been with friends and family 3 times to the Goat cheese farm and enjoyed a special experience every time. The family running it are incredibly welcoming and accommodating. You have to pre-book a tour and there is a minimum number (about 10 I think) but you may be able to tack onto another group as we did on one occasion. Apart from seeing how the cheese is made and making some yourself, there is a tour of the organic site, an explanatory video, chance to meet and fly the birds of prey and see the donkeys, horses, black pigs and of course goats. The children loved milking the goats and petting the goats (in springtime obviously) and holding the birds. We also had tapas of there own cheeses and chorizos at the end and breakfast before we started. Highly recommended. Translations can be arranged.
Fuimos 3 veces a la granja Bucarito, que da una visita super interesante y diferente. Preparamos queso, vimos los aves rapaces y visitamos los otros animales. Hay desayuno y tapas tambien.

Pasarela del Litoral de Rota

Reviewed By ferespidico - Seville, Spain

Es el paseo que va por la primera linea de playa, que va desde playa del rompidillol, playa chorrillo, enlaza con el puerto deportivo y marítimo, y vuelve a ser paseo por toda la playa de la costilla. En epoca de verano, también tienen chiringuitos, y algunos locales tienen acceso directo desde la playa.
Bonito para pasear, ver la puesta de sol, o sentarse un rato.

Parque Laguna del Moral

Reviewed By ferespidico - Seville, Spain

Está en una zona residencia muy tranquila. Es muy fácil aparcar, y tiene parque infantil, pistas deportivas, la laguna con las aves que se pueden ver por que están habituadas a los humanos, y un parque canico con bastante sombra,
Un sitio muy bueno para practicar deportes o ir con el perrete y/o los niños.
