Cádiz Province has an extensive coastline, with countless high-quality beaches. Its beaches are appreciated for their pure waters and white sands. It is not without reason that many publications have referred to it as the “Caribbean of Europe”.

The city of Cádiz is located on an isthmus surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean on one side and the Bay of Cádiz on the other.

Cádiz has both city beaches as well as more isolated, near-virgin beaches where construction has been limited.

The closest beach to the hotel Monte Puertatierra is Playa de Santa María del Mar, which is just 80 metres from the hotel. It is a city beach of around 650 metres in length, forming a cove which is sheltered from the east winds.

The next beach is Playa de La Victoria. This city beach runs the entire length of the part of Cádiz which lies outside of the city walls. It is 2.8 km long. It is the longest beach in the city centre and is very popular. A seafront promenade with lots of beach bars and restaurants runs the whole length of the beach.

Beyond that is Playa de la Cortadura, the only beach which is not built up, making it the most natural beach in Cádiz. 3.9 km long, it follows the stretch of land separating the Atlantic Ocean from the Bay of Cádiz and joining Cádiz to San Fernando.

Last but not least is Playa de El Chato/Torregorda, a natural beach which joins the cities of Cádiz and San Fernando. It is 2.7 km long and is an extension of Playa de la Cortadura.
At the start of this beach is Ventorrillo el Chato, an old stopping point for travellers which dates from 1780. It is now a restaurant with a lot of history.

All of these beaches link together to form a single beach which is approximately 10 km long. This makes them ideal for walking, swimming and enjoying sunny days and spectacular sunsets with a drink from one of the beach bars.

Finally, we must mention the most popular beach of all, Playa de La Caleta. It is the smallest beach in Cádiz, at only 450 m in length, and is right in the heart of the historical centre between the castles of Santa Catalina and San Sebastián.
It is a beach of great beauty and is home to the Spa of Nuestra Señora de la Palma y del Real, a beautiful historical building, as well as old defensive structures.

Cádiz’s beaches, together with its historical, monumental, cultural and gastronomical heritage, its climate and its friendly inhabitants, have made the city a first-rate tourist attraction for Spaniards and foreigners alike.
