Hotels Chiclana de la Frontera Spain Cheap Chiclana de la Frontera Hotels
If you're not sure where this particular resort is, grab a map of Spain and find the city of Cadiz in the south west. Just south of it should be some huge patches of green. Well, Chiclana is right in the middle of them! These are the pine forests, oak woods, meadows, ecologically important marshes and even vineyards that form the surrounding Cadiz Bay Natural Park, and run parallel to its local wild beaches. The longest of these is La Barrossa (5 miles), and, despite being regarded as one of the best in the region, can be virtually free of holidaymakers. This means that with around 3,000 hours of sunshine a year in these parts there'll be plenty of time for you to work on that tan in peace! If you'd rather be a bit more active, this stretch of the Costa de la Luz is also known as a great place for windsurfing and other water sports. The city of Chiclana itself is quintessential Andalusia - narrow cobbled alleyways, balconies bursting with flowers, tapas on tap and beautiful baroque buildings! The churches of Jesus Nazareno and San Telmo are well worth a look, but then again, so is most of the architecture here. The surrounding area is also home to its fair share of history. A short trip across from the mainland will bring you to the little island of Sancti Perti, where it's said that Hercules slew the winged giant Geryon.
