Things to do in Huelva
Huelva tourism offers you a lot of sun and the best beaches in southern Spain. Many of the most noteworthy ones are located close to our Isla Canela hotel in Ayamonte. The Isla Canela beaches lying beside the estuaries of the Guadiana and Carreras rivers are perfect for those planning to travel to Huelva with children. The most impressive beaches are Isla Canela, Los Haraganes or Punta del Moral. These quiet white-sand beaches are suitable for bathing and relaxing and additionally they have all the services for you to be able to enjoy your holidays in Spain to the maximum.
And the beaches of Isla Cristina are no less attractive. Located close to Isla Canela, surrounded by beautiful nature, the Central, Hoyo and Punta del Caiman beaches on Las Gaviotas island are ideal for those looking to get away from it all.
The Mazagón beaches located near the Doñana National Park including areas of the municipalities of Moguer and Palos de la Frontera are worth a visit too. Beautiful cliffs, access to the sea and the moderate waves here are ideal for relaxing and surfing. Finally, take a moment to explore the beaches of Punta Umbria as well. The fine-sandy beaches of Bota, El Portil and El Rompido are the closest to the city of Huelva.
Punta Umbria is also very popular with surfers and even holds surfing and bodyboarding competitions. So if you like to surf, Huelva has some of the best beaches in Spain for riding the waves.
However, if you want to go further afield and explore the Atlantic coast, visit the Algarve beaches, located in neighbouring Portugal where the landscapes will leave you speechless.
When it comes to festivals and traditions, it is important to emphasize the fact that Huelva is a stage for El Rocio pilgrimage, the most important religious pilgrimage in Spain. Each year, this event brings together more than a million participants.
In addition, for those who wish to play golf in Huelva, there are various facilities in the province, such as La Mancilla Golf, Bellavista Golf Club and El Rompido golf courses.
Finally, holidays in Spain wouldn’t be complete without trying the food. Therefore, you must try the incredible Jabugo ham, one of the best-known specialties in Huelva, and we recommend trying Huelva prawns which are typical in this area.
