With more than three thousand years of history, Cadiz is a must-see if you’re in the area. A treasure yet to be discovered, this city will make you fall in love with its well-preserved old town, its intricate narrow streets flanked by walls, its Roman theater, its imposing cathedral, its coves and its waterfront.
Castillo de Sancti Petri, just in front of the Valentin Sancti Petri hotel, separated by a stretch of sea from the shore, was founded by the Greeks during the Trojan War (12th century BC), and in Roman times it was linked to Cadiz by a causeway which can still be seen underwater. It’s possible to visit it by boat. We recommend you do this at sunset, or even on a guided kayak tour.
Vejer de la Frontera: if you’re only going to visit one of the inimitable white villages in the Cadiz mountains, choose Vejer. It’s one of the most beautiful villages in Spain and is on top of a mountain 200 meters above sea level and only 8 kilometers from the coast. The views from the village will take your breath away.
Chiclana de la Frontera, a baroque town in a unique natural environment, is also a town dedicated to wine: fruity white wines, sherries, and sweet muscatels made following traditional processes. Be sure to visit some of its wineries or experience the local gastronomy, seafood, estuary fish, or if you’re looking for something more typical, try some chicharrones (pork rinds) or berza chiclanera (cabbage).
Zahara de los Atunes, its beauty (the city holds many traces of other times), light and gastronomy (don’t forget to try almadraba tuna) are its best attractions. With extensive magnificent beaches, light, fine sands and the most modern beach bars, Zahara is worthy of a getaway.
Sunset at Playa la Barrosa, the beach at Valentin Sancti Petri hotel. Where you’ll enjoy eternal sunsets in search of Verne's famous last green ray, preferably savoring the mixology at our exclusive beach bar VAVÁ Playa.
The promenade invites you to have a good time in one of its many tapas bars, restaurants and ice cream parlors. From here you can enjoy wonderful views and spectacular sunsets where the sun seems to dive into the water behind Hercules’ castle. It also has a marina offering a wide range of nautical activities.
Cadiz offers visitors a wide range of both cultural and sporting leisure activities. Enjoy the beach, the varied gastronomy, do water sports, play golf, walk the route of the white villages or embark on a tour to see dolphins and whales. These are some of the many activities offered by the Costa de la Luz.
One of the most precious treasures of Cadiz is wine, and the province has 2 well-differentiated routes: the Wine and Brandy of Jerez Route, which starts in Chiclana de la Frontera and ends in Jerez, passing through Chipiona, Sanlúcar de Barrameda or Trebujena, and the route of the Wines of the Sierra de Cádiz, which includes the municipalities of Arcos de la Frontera and Prado del Rey. This is an excellent leisure option for wine lovers who’d like to discover wineries, participate in wine tastings, walk through the vineyards or take courses, among many other activities.
