Sun… summer and ‘olé’. Welcome to Cadiz, where everything is possible: from taking a quiet dip on the beach, surfing to the rhythm of the waves, climbing the tower of Tavira and of course tasting fried fish-the local icon.
Because to speak of Cadiz, is to speak of the essence of Andalusian summer, where all the family is welcome… and despite the high temperatures the city offers some beaches where to refresh to the sound of Cádiz: with tranquility and joy.
Are you thinking of going to Cádiz this summer? Today in OWAY we tell you our favorite plans… Don’t miss it. Also we recommend you our Free Walking Tour in Cadiz.
Europe’s oldest city offers a wide range of activities in summer, for all pockets and audiences, some do not require much expense and others, such as strolling through the impressive old town are completely free.
The heat arrives but Cádiz has four impressive beaches considered the best in Europe.
They are as follows:
These are quiet beaches, where the currents are not very strong and have the necessary infrastructure, so you don’t have to worry about anything more than enjoying.
The best? Have views and access to the city center in just a few steps. Beers in the sun or at sunset, and ‘tortillitas de camarones’ (shrimp fritters).
The worst? Summer is over. In Oway we are faithful devotees of the beaches of Cádiz… almost therapeutic.
On the beaches of Cádiz, you can go to the rocks and gather shellfish, play a game of beach volleyball or football or enjoy water sports.
And after a hard day at the beach, there’s nothing better than wandering through the narrow streets of the old town and discovering the following mandatory stops:
This is one of the most popular neighborhoods, not the oldest in the city –between white houses, balconies covered with flowers, palm trees and the light of its streets you will spend hours walking through one of the most beautiful neighborhoods in Spain.
Trafalgar Lighthouse: A historic place…you can’t miss.
Cádiz Cathedral: Facing the sea and resisting the passage of time, it is an obligatory stop.
San Sebastian Castle: This is an impressive natural enclave – an island that has its own boardwalk and of course its own fortress.
It is believed that the Phoenician temple of Kronos was located on this islet.
Alameda Apodaca: A seaside promenade with more than 400 years of history…and giant trees. We would describe them to you, but it is better that you see them in person.
As you’ll see, in Cadiz you’ll find everything you need to enjoy the essence of summer: between the sea breeze, and the streets covered with flowers you’ll spend an unforgettable holiday – and surely, you’ll come back.
Because that’s Cádiz, a place you arrive at, but never leave. You come back again and again.
