Chiclana de la Frontera

There is an abundance of self-catering accommodation in Chiclana de la Frontera, with everything from luxury apartments and grand villas with swimming pools and private gyms to boutique chalets and rustic country houses. It also has many chalets - slightly smaller than a villa, but great value for money.

Being a popular tourist destination due to its cultural and historic heritage, Chiclana de la Frontera has many accommodation options available to those tourists who descend upon the town all year round. There is a wide variety of hotels and self-catering accommodation options in the town itself.

Bus from Chiclana to other towns stops at the large roundabout called Plaza de Andalucia in the centro of the town just north of the bridge over the Rio Iro on the old coast road which is now A-9034. There is not a bus station as such but there is a hardstanding for bus infront of Hotel Alboran.

Part of the Bahía de Cádiz Natural Park, this 170ha protected area of saltmarsh is interesting for its rich birdlife. Sancti Petri was a fishing village but is now largely abandoned, overtaken in importance in its new incarnation, the modern tourist complex of Nuevo Sancti Petri. This area around the saltmarsh is somewhat built up, with golf courses and hotels to the south.

Within this 567ha reserve are two lakes, Laguna de Montellano and Laguna de Jeli, which together make up a core protected area of 49ha. Montellano lake is situated on impermeable clay and Jeli on impermeable loam.

Encompassing a 10,522ha flat landscape of sandy beaches, marshes, salt pans, freshwater lakes and tidal inlets, as well as the two natural areas of Isla del Trocadero and the Marismas de Sancti Petri, the Cadiz Bay supports a surprising wealth of wildlife, given the built-up areas that are in and around it, which make up a population of around 400,000.

Although these beaches are in the municipality of Chiclana de la Frontera, they are actually located some 7km away near the village of Sancti Petri. This popular beach stretches 2.5km from the the puerto deportivo of Sancti Petri to the old watch tower, Torre de la Bermeja.

Just inland from the coast Chiclana sits on a small hill overlooking the marismas (salt marshes). The town dates from 1303, when King Fernando IV of Castille gave the land to Guzman El Bueno, the defender of Tarifa, who was succeeded by the Duques de Medina Sidonia.
