Chiclana de la Frontera

Chiclana de la Frontera is located in the Andalusian province of Cadiz, situated to the south of the Gaditanian Bay.

Chiclana de la Frontera is in a half hour drive from Jerez de la Frontera airport, and an hour and a half from the one in Seville.

About town

The urban centre of Chiclana has good amenities and also has a wealth of important cultural attractions. There is a commercial centre, markets, handicrafts, wine cellars, restaurants, bars, and much more to amuse you.

Nature
Beaches, pinewoods and salt marshes with a high ecological value, are part of the protected area known as the Natural Park of the Bay of Cadiz. Its long sandy beaches helped the development of high-quality tourism; the pinewoods alongside the coast are the ideal complement to the beaches, and sea and country sit in perfect harmony. 

Inland, vineyards, oak woods and meadows are dominate the landscape. Within the nature reserves and lakes, such as Jeli and Montellano, you find different bird species, some of which are
in danger of extinction. 

Culture
Chiclana is an agricultural and traditional town, with excellent wines and the medicinal waters,  "Springs of Fuente Amarga". Its urban structure
is of a typical Andalusian style, with narrow streets and courtyards full of flowers.

Chiclana preserves its Andalusian customs and traditions well: the processions, bullfighting, flamenco, wine production are all part of life
for the inhabitants of Chiclana de la Frontera.

There is an interesting visit to the puppet factory shows, where puppets are craftily dressed in typical Andalusian attire.

Cuisine
Chiclana de la Frontera is home to some of the best cuisine in Andalusia. With fine restaurants serving locally caught seafood, which should be washed down with one of the excellent local wines; Moscatel and Oloroso being popular with Spanish visitors.

Spanish sausages, such as Butifarra and Longanizas are typical of Chiclana and not to be missed are the almond pies made by the Augustinian nuns.

Climate
Chiclana de la Frontera enjoys a mild Mediterranean climate, with little rain and more than 3,000 hours of sun a year.

Chiclana de la Frontera review

This area is a hidden gem and most British people who we know are not even aware of where Chiclana de la Frontera lies on the map. The area has so much to offer and it is a shame that it is not advertised more to families and couple or older people in Europe who travel. It is more for Spanish people but that holds the beauty of it.


Costa de la Luz reviews

Excellend, clean and good facilities.

Chiclana de la Frontera review

We actually stayed in the beach area of Chiclana in La Barossa which is a very Spanish feeling village with not many English speakers, which is not a problem if you are used to using a dictionary and sign language, this to us was part of its charm. There are lots of restaurants and bars along the main part of the village and you could easily eat in a different place every night of your stay. Prices are reasonable. The beach is lovely and we spent quite a lot of time there just people watching and relaxing.


Costa de la Luz reviews

As we did not venture out very much we cannot comment, but what we did see was good.

Chiclana de la Frontera review

I would not really regard the area we stayed in as a City. Yes, the City was on our doorstep which might have been useful, but we found the quiet residential feel of the pine forested suburbs very tranquil and relaxing. As a base for nipping off ti interesting places (real Spain)... we couldn't beat it.


Costa de la Luz reviews

Clean, beautiful and unspoilt. Lovely seaside restaurants (literally on the beach) and excellent facilities - on beach showers, kids play areas (slides, swings, and climbing frames).
