Chiclana de la Frontera lies in the south of the Bay of Cadiz and was founded in Phoenician times alongside the cities of Seville, Cadiz and Malaga some 3000 years ago. Its centuries long history, outstanding beaches rated as some of the best in Europe, never ending sunshine and wonderful wines make Chiclana de la Frontera a very popular holiday destination. Chiclana de la Frontera is part of the "ruta de vino", the wine route which links all of the local sherry producing towns with their popular bodegas.
Chiclana is famous for its natural beaches, particularly "Playa de la Barrosa" at 10km long and the slightly smaller "Playa de Sancti Petri" perched next to it on the coast. For this reason, this is the perfect sea side home or holiday destination for those who purely wish to indulge in relaxing on the beach, cooling down in the crystal clear Atlantic Ocean and soaking up the light bright sunshine the Costa de la Luz is named after (Coast of Light). Chiclana town and beach front are full of great restaurants, shops and bars and there is always something to do. For sporty types, there are many options to choose from including golf, tennis, kite -surfing, cycling, horse-riding....the list is endless.
For the more romantic amongst you, a gentle stroll along the beautiful beaches in the evening will reward you with some of the most breathtaking sunsets and perhaps you could stop off on the way at one of the award winning "chiringuitos" (beach bars) open in the summer months to sample a cool glass of local "fino" (sherry). Whatever you are looking for, Chiclana has everything you need and more.
