Its location at the southernmost point of the Iberian Peninsula and its outstanding climate have made it an object of desire for millennia, coveted by the Tartessians, Phoenicians, Greeks, Romans, Visigoths and Moors. There is one attraction after another along these 200 km of the peninsula’s finest golden sands.
Sanlúcar de Barrameda is at the mouth of the Guadalquivir River, the natural channel along which major cultures and civilisations have travelled, leaving behind their indelible marks. Its exceptional location opposite Doñana National Park, Spain’s most important Biological Reserve, makes it an ideal starting point for visitors who want to reach this nature area. The popular Bajo de Guía Beach is where its famous horse races are held every year.
Chipiona, Rota, El Puerto de Santa María, Puerto Real, Chiclana, Conil, Barbate and Tarifa are some of the main towns and cities, with spacious beaches, tourism infrastructures and clear waters.
These areas are perfect for windsurfing, while underwater fishing is also popular in the crystalline waters off the numerous beaches: Los Lances, Bolonia, Punta Paloma, de la Plata, Valdevaqueros and Torre de la Peña.
