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

The city has the facilities you require but the main attraction is the lovely sandy 6km long beach Barrosa that is perfect for both families and individuals.


Costa de la Luz reviews

Chiclana de la Frontera review

The suberbs of Chicalana do sprawl a bit down to the sea, but this is not intensely built up with holiday lets. It has a suburban Spanish feel and is certainly pleasant enough


Costa de la Luz reviews

From Golf to Surf or just sight-seeing it is a great area.

Chiclana de la Frontera review

Bigger and more sprawling than I expected but lovely beach at la Barossa and saint Petrie .Easy but boring drive to Cadiz.Easy to drive to other areas. Lots of big supermarkets in town and places to eat but if you don't speak much Spanish then go for restaurants on the beach as they have men's with translation to English/French


Costa de la Luz reviews

The coast was very clean with beautiful soft sand but not many toilets.You have to use cafes loo so have to buy a drink.We did go just out of season though but having said that we did notice very few public toilets.
