  Barbate Beach
by Carmela71


Beaches of El Loro (Outer Doñana Park Area), Isla Cristina beach.

The beaches of Mazagón and Matalascañas (he largest tourist resort on Huelva's Costa de la Luz)

Doñana National Park.

Monasterio de la Rábida opposite to Punta del Sebo.


A nice area around Cadiz capital: Sanlúcar de Barrameda (situated at the mouth of the River Guadalquivir), Chipriona, El Puerto de Santa María and Sancti Petri beach (Chiclana).

And now my favourites:

Conil de la frontera a typical fishing village with 14 km of beaches: Los Bateles, La Fontanilla, Fuente del Gallo, and the Calas de Roche.

Vejer de la frontera built on a hilltop close to the sea is a medieval town of narrow, steep streets and white-walled houses surrounded by a defensive wall.

On the coast nearby is El Palmar beach and El Cabo (Cape) de Trafalgar, where the famous battle took place.

Barbate with beaches as del Carmen, and de Yerbabuena, and above all the Caños de Meca.

Zahara de los Atunes is a picturesque spot with an amazing line of beaches

Tarifa , a historic city, with its numerous beaches: Los Lances, Bolonia, Punta Paloma, De la Plata, Valdevaqueros and Torre de la Peña.

Sorry I could not resist, as this area is one of the most beautiful in Spain
