Isla Cristina

Isla Cristina

The three coastal resort towns of Isla Cristina, Isla Canela and Isla del Moral make up a beautiful stretch of coastline that has, in recent years, soared in popularity. Self-catering accommodation in Isla Cristina itself can be hard to find, as hotels seem to be the preferred option here.

A stunning destination on the Costa de la Luz, Isla Cristina attracts a huge amount of tourists, especially in the summertime. This has led to many hotels being built there, many of them being luxury hotels including spa and health facilities.

The marshland nature reserve of the Marismas de Isla Cristina is situated between the northern edge of Isla Cristina village and the Carreras estuary to the east and Ayamonte and the Guadiana estuary to the west. Within its 2.1 sq km is a variety of habitats and an impressive range of birds.

Isla Cristina is one of the most popular resorts on the Costa de la Luz in Huelva and gets very busy in the summer. There are many beaches to choose from, although the main beach, Playa Central can seem overcrowded in July and August.

Isla Cristina was once situated on an island and is worth a visit for its marvellous choice of beaches that are sandy and extensive, stretching 8km long. There are some excellent windsurfing spots along this stretch of coast. It is also a busy port, famed for its fresh and preserved fish and one of the most important in Andalusia, if not Spain. It has about 21,300 inhabitants.
