The top 10 beaches of Andalucía (part II)

We continue with our list of the top ten beaches of Andalucía. As we mentioned in the previous post, the Andalucían territory has a number of great beaches for tourists and others that are lesser known, allowing them a special charm.

Here we present the beaches: El Palmar (on the Cadiz coast), the amazing beach in the mountains commonly known as Zahara de la Sierra, the Flecha del Rompido, Calas de Roche and the beach that can be found in the Doñana Natural Park.

Do you know them all? You will surely enjoy….

Playa El Palmar (Conil)


Palmar Beach is located in Vejer de la Frontera, in the province of Cadiz. This is an excellent beach about 8 kms in length and an average width of about 50m. The sand is fine and golden and the water is very clean and shallow. It is one of the few remaining unspoilt beaches along the coast of Cadiz, Andalusia, as there are no developments nearby and the area offers amenities not usually found in a beach town. It is a very quiet beach and is separated in many of its areas by natural dunes.

Take special care to enjoy its beautiful sunsets with deep reds reflecting against the sea.

Zahara de la Sierra (Cádiz)


Who said it was not possible to enjoy the sea in the mountains? For those who want to combine the typical ocean breeze with the air you find in the valley, the unique Zahara de la Sierra beach is located in the heart of the Sierra de Grazalema Natural Park.

This is a wide space between orchards and fruit trees that has followed the course of the river to create a special, small beach. It has a bar and restaurant, a barbecue and recreation areas. The water is treated and in perfect condition and the temperature is ideal to ease the intense heat, especially during the summer months.

Flecha El Rompido (Huelva)

The reputation of the beaches in El Rompido is undisputed: the sand spit that stretches between the Atlantic and the River Stones is considered one of the most precious jewels of Spain’s study of natural organism and their relationship to their natural surroundings. Known as La Flecha del Rompido, its fine golden sands and gentle waves allow moments of total relaxation in a way you may have never experienced before. The dunes, pine forests and long beaches help create one of the most charming landscapes of the Costa de la Luz.

Calas de Roche (Cádiz)


The Calas de Roche is a series of small coves that lie between the port of Conil and the Roche urbanization. They are characterized by rocky beaches and beautifully, impressive reddish cliffs. They are coves that run between them when the tide is low.

These very private coves offer incredible beauty, especially at the end of the day when you can admire the beautiful sunsets. This view makes the beach an especially popular destination during the summer months when couples arrive seeking tranquillity and a chance to enjoy the impressive natural environment.

Doñana Beach Park

Sixty Miles of Beach – this is what can be found on the shores of the Natural Park and the Doñana National Park. While the Doñana National Park beach is restricted between Mazagon and Matalascañas, you can enjoy the virtually untouched beaches and open access on the coastline that runs along the Doñana Natural Park. Among them, you’ll find the Torre del Loro beach, which owes its name to the remains of an ancient watchtower, running about 3 km of fine golden sands. There you can enjoy spectacular golden cliffs and a brisk sea. Access is quite simple and you can find collections of shrubs and even water from a small stream.
