Cádiz hides unique spots, places full of magic where we can discover the authentic essence of this Andalusian province and let ourselves be impressed by its beauty and its delicious culture and cuisine. Chiclana de la Frontera, one step away from the centre of San Fernando and very close to Puerto Real and to the city of Cádiz, is one of them. Everything converges here, from so impressive natural spots such as the marshes of Sancti Petri to the famous beaches in Roche, one of the most emblematic beach areas in Cádiz thanks to its quality, not much overcrowding and to the high degree of conservation of its natural richness.
Chiclana is synonymous with party, fried fish and folklore. It is a perfect destination for knowing the authentic coast of Cádiz. You can easily access from almost any point of the peninsula and with complete services for the traveller: “Chiclana Suena” Concerts Festival in August, painting exhibitions, recitals, boat tours, theatre, children parties, golf tournament.
If you are undecided and have not chosen yet a holiday destination for this summer 2014, here we give you good reasons for choosing Chiclana as the epicentre of you getaway.
