The original Sancti Petri was a small tuna-fishing village located on a spit of land on the Atlantic coast near San Fernando, where the Cadiz peninsula meets the mainland. On the southern side, it is surrounded by marshes and sand bars, and beyond those, the town of Chiclana de la Frontera.
NOVO SANCTI PETRI
After the old town was abandoned in the 1970s, the land was looked after by the military. Today it is slowly being redeveloped as a leisure and watersports area. The old highway down the centre of the land is abandoned now, but its former importance can be seen from the lines of tall mature palm trees.
Now a one-way traffic system runs around the outside of the peninsula, providing access to the restaurants, cafes and bars, as well as well as the fishing jetties. The Club Nautico occupies an old rustic blue building, while the new port and marina facilities offer an impressive example of recent investment.
A pleasure craft boat service operates in summer months, with services a few times a day to Playa de Barrosa beach and the Island of Sancti Petri, and also for pleasure trips around the Natural Park Bahia de Cadiz.
