Chiringuitos (beach restaurants) in Conil and its surrounding area worth a getaway
Both Conil and its surrounding area are a dreamy place, and more so in summer. Quality gastronomy, a nice atmosphere, the pleasant typical politeness of its people and, of course, an enviable climate make the beach restaurants (chiringuitos) one of the best reasons for claiming some Atlantic sand. We’re not just saying that, since even the sun shines differently, which is no surprise; we are talking about the Costa de la Luz or Coast of Light in Spanish, after all.
To enjoy these rays of sun in a special way, we propose a gastronomic tour of the beach and can tell you about some of the area’s best beach restaurants.

This beach restaurant is located on one of the sunniest beaches in the entire Cádiz province. We recommend you take into account that you need to reserve before you arrive, both at lunchtime and at night, because it fills up quickly. Moreover, when the sun sets, it fills up with young people who come to enjoy a few drinks.
