Book your hotel in Cadiz

Welcome to Cadiz! A province which, along with Huelva, forms part of the Costa de la Luz - one of the main tourist destinations offering the best beach holidays in Spain. Washed by the Atlantic Ocean, this enclave can boast the mildest climate on the Iberian Peninsula. Long, fine-sandy beaches which are not overbuilt and without streams of visitors, plus the countless cultural, sporting and leisure activities explain why this part of southern Spain is worth a visit. If you are looking for comfortable quiet holidays in Spain, choose one of Iberostar’s Cadiz hotels, where you will be taken care of in the best way possible.

This amazing province which lies on the southwestern Spanish coast beside outstanding beaches, allows you to enjoy nature in its purest form. It is enough to mention the Bay of Cadiz Nature Reserve, or the Los Alcornocales or Sierra de Grazalema Natural Parks. The Sierra de Grazalema Park will surprise you not only with its beauty, but also a unique area known as El Pinsapar, which unlike the rest of the province, this zone in the Park is the rainiest in the Peninsula. Thus, Cadiz is a place of great contrasts providing perfect conditions for a successful summer holiday in Spain.

What to see in Cadiz

The capital of the province, the city of Cadiz, stands out for its magnificent geographical one-of-a-kind location in Spain and due to its extraordinary luminescence it is popularly known as Tacita de Plata (Silver Cup). Surrounded by the Bay of Cadiz to the east and the Atlantic Ocean to the west, Cadiz is a real pearl of Andalusia.

Located near the outfall of three rivers, the Guadalete, the Iro and the Salado de Rota, on a coastline dotted with wetlands and full of salt water currents, such as the San Pedro River or the Caño de Sancti Petri, Cádiz has been an important place of interest since time immemorial. In fact, it is the oldest continuously inhabited city in Spain and one of the oldest in Europe, founded in 1100 AC by Phoenicians from Tyre, in modern day Lebanon.

Among the most popular attractions in Cadiz is the Tavira tower. Built in the 18th century to monitor ships arriving to and leaving from the city, nowadays it invites visitors to enjoy exceptional views from the top. Also, do not miss Cadiz Cathedral, a largely baroque-style Roman Catholic Church constructed in two types of stone. Drop by the lively neighbourhood of El Pópulo, in the old town, and pay a visit to the lively Mercado Central (Central Market) or the Genovés Park dating back to the 19th century.

Among all the historical, natural and cultural attractions of the city, the Museum of Cadiz deserves a special mention. Here visitors can admire two impressive sarcophagi dating back to the Phoenician period, Roman statues and works of famous sculptors, such as Francisco de Zurbarán and Bartolomé Esteban Murillo.

On the other hand, the areas surrounding our hotels in Chiclana de la Frontera offer other, equally attractive options, such as the Church of Saint John the Baptist (Iglesia de San Juan Bautista) completed in 1814, which hosts two paintings by Zurbarán, the Chapel of the Holy Christ of Vera - the oldest religious building in Chiclana, or the imposing castle of Sancti Petri.

Things to do in Cadiz

Cadiz tourism is based not only on the cultural richness of the city; one also has the opportunity to enjoy the numerous leisure options on offer. This well-known spot on the Costa de la Luz is one of the best holiday destinations in Spain thanks to its wonderful beaches. One of the most famous is La Caleta beach. Located between the castles of San Sebastián and Santa Catalina, it is an ideal place to contemplate the most beautiful sunsets in Andalusia. Another outstanding beach is Playa de la Victoria which is considered one of the best urban beaches in Europe as it is a perfect place for practicing water sports. But those who prefer to spend time relaxing during their holidays in Spain, can find many activities here too; a visit to an open-air theatre, for example, is one option out of many.

Of course, to enjoy the sun or a relaxing swim you do not have to travel to Cadiz, as in Chiclana de la Frontera the beaches are only 7 km from the town centre. Once there, you can choose between Barrosa and Sancti Petri. The first one is a 6 km-long beach divided into two sections: one of them lies next to the Promenade, stretching all the way to the tower called Torre del Puerco and is more secluded and peppered with pine forests. The second, Sancti Petri, is a 2 km long beach separated from Barrosa by cliffs.

And a bit further, in the south of the province, the well-known beaches of Tarifa are waiting for you. These are the best beaches in Spain (and in the whole of Europe) for surfing and kitesurfing. In addition, from here one can take a ferry to the north of Morocco.

Finally, it is important to mention that Chiclana de la Frontera is a great place to play golf in Cadiz. You are more than welcome to use the facilities of the Novo Sancti Petri Golf Club for this purpose.
