When we stayed in early June it was quiet on weekdays but busy at the weekends. Very much a beach resort. Beaches were clean and of good quality

Chipiona

The ancient town of Chipiona, situated the far west of the province of Cadiz, has been a popular Spanish tourist resort for many years. It’s not hard to see why, as it combines a beautiful cultural town, dating back to Roman times, with stunning beaches and a gastronomy to make your mouth water. 

The closest airport is Jerez, around 45 minutes drive away, which serves Ryan Air flights from the UK.

Around town
Chipiona exudes Andalusian charm, with its vibrant and bohemian atmosphere, which is character of many of the local towns and villages of Cadiz. 

The seaside village, sits at the mouth of the Guadalquivir river and has been a seafaring and fishing village for many centuries. 

There are plenty of bars and restaurants in Chipiona and a host of leisure and cultural attractions. The locals call Chipiona, “el pueblo de tiempo”, which roughly translates to, Chipiona, the place of time. Locals comment that in Chipiona you find  some time for everything: work, siesta (afternoon nap), a beer with friends, family and sports. 

Beaches
The coastline in the Cadiz region is superb, both for beach bums, water sports lovers and those looking for a laid-back and quieter beach. 

Long, white sandy beaches, shelve down to the Atlantic ocean, where you can enjoy crystal clear waters and water sports such as surfing, kite boarding and sailing. 

Cultural attractions
Dating back to Roman times, Chipiona has lots of cultural monuments and attractions to enjoy.  

The most notable monuments is the Chipiona Lighthouse, it’s the tallest in Spain (third in the world) and the oldest monument in the village, built by the Romans during their occupation. Located at the Punta del Perro (Dog’s Point) at the mouth of the river, it was constructed to warn ships about the Piedra de Salmedina, a large rock that stands just off shore. 

Don’t expect to have too much breath left after climbing the 365 steps to the top, but save one for when you breath out at the remarkable views along the coast to Portugal. On a clear day you can see up to 25 kilometres away.

Other monuments worth a visit include Chipiona’s very own 12th century castle, which today houses a monastery, open to visitors and the 16th century Nuestra Señora de la Parish church. The architecture combines classic Renaissance and Gothic styles. 

Places to visit
Chipiona is an excellent base to discover the stunning and natural region of Cadiz. Close by are the cities of Cadiz and Jerez and a bit further away, but still in reach is the Andalusian capital of Seville. The bohemian town of Tarifa is just under two hours drive away. 

Leisure pursuits
Chipiona, as with much of this coastline, is very popular with water sports enthusiasts. The long stretches of sandy beach and large waves coming off the Atlantic Ocean make it a must for kite surfing, windsurfing and sailing. 

The Costa Ballena Golf Club is situated close by. The 18 hole course was designed by Maria Olazabel and attracts many visitors looking to play golf in Cadiz. 

Local cuisine
Chipiona is widely recognised for its outstanding gastronomy, especially its seafood. There are plenty of local bars and restaurants serving local cuisine and good prices. The local Manzanilla wine is also recommended, brewed close to the sea, it is said to taste like sea air!

Climate
Chipiona enjoys a mild climate; the hottest period of the year is during the summer months of July and August, when the temperature rises to around 32 degrees. The wind that blows in from the Atlantic Ocean can often make it feeler cooler in the winter, spring and autumn months.

Chipiona review

We were unlucky with the weather it was cool for June and our group of 14 struggled to find restaurants able to cater for us all inside. Great base to explore from.


Costa de la Luz reviews

Would have been 5 stars if we had been luckier with the weather - wind off the Atlantic kept temperatures at 20° even tho' sunny.
