Hi,

Were thinking of going to Cadiz for a few days in the summer & would love to spend a week nearby at a sea side location, somewhere quiet .
We love seafood & culture !
I would really appreciate any insights & tips into going to Cadiz & the surrounding area as we've never been before .Smile

I love Cádiz. It has a really different feel to the rest of Andalucía imo. Hopefully someone with a much better knowledge of the surrounds will be around soon. Over the years, I’ve looked at going to nearby places, but have always thought the coastal places look a bit too much like working towns, rather than places to have a holiday. Happy to hear differently though.

Closest beachy place I’ve stayed in is Tarifa, a lovely relaxed (small) beach town in the area but closer to Gibraltar than Cádiz. Gorgeous big sandy beach with clear shallow water. Can be v windy though. It’s popular for water sports.

Stayed in Conil de la Frontera years ago was a lovely wee town and beach.
Always think about how I’d love to go back to be honest..!

El Puerto de Santa Maria is near to Cadiz and has a lot of beach side hotels. Huge sandy beach. And Conil as mentioned above. I love Cadiz. There is Rick Stein episode where he spent the weekend there.
