Traveling to Cádiz is always a great option for its gastronomy, culture, good weather and, also, for the great beaches that this province has.

In total, it has 260 kilometers of coastline, of which 138 kilometers are beaches (coves, sandbanks, etc.).

Thanks to this coastal extension, Cádiz has a total of 74 beaches to enjoy. Nothing more and nothing less than 30 of them have received the Blue Flag recognizing their quality.

The beaches of Cádiz exhibit different landscapes where the mountains or the pine forests meet the sea.

These are very natural beaches where you can also participate in sports such as fly-surfing or windsurfing, and where movies like “Agent 007” have been filmed.

In this article we are going to highlight some of the best beaches in Cádiz from Sanlúcar or Chipiona to Bolonia beach.


Cádiz beaches essential to visit

Trafalgar Lighthouse Beach:

Beach located in Caños de Meca within the Cabo de Trafalgar Natural Park. A natural and wild landscape presided over by its lighthouse.

A spectacular beach awaits you to enjoy walks on its fine sand, but you must exercise great caution while bathing due to its strong currents.

Playa de los Alemanes Beach:

Located in Tarifa, very close to Zahara de los Atunes, we find Los Alemanes beach.

This Cádiz beach is approximately 1,500 meters long and 50 meters wide and is dominated by a lighthouse in the background.

Its name comes from World War II, when the Germans used this anchorage to monitor and supply the ships that circulated through the strait.

A paradise of fine sand and crystal clear water that we invite you to discover.

Bolonia beach:

The most famous beach in Cádiz and considered one of the last virgin beaches in southern Spain.

Tarifa is the location of this beach, which offers a view of the Moroccan city of Tangier from the top of its dune.

The Bolonia beach dune has been declared a National Monument and is of great ecological importance.

In addition, this 3-kilometre-long location has been awarded as the 10th best beach in Europe and the 2nd in Spain.
