If you are a nature lover, we recommend to spend your holidays in Chiclana de la Frontera. The province of Cádiz is well known for protecting many of its natural areas in an exceptional way, rich and varied with flora and where wonderful species of different animals live.
Visit the Bay of Cádiz Natural Park, an outstanding place to stroll and enjoy the marshes, either on foot or by bike. The special ecological characteristics of these wetlands are caused by the influence of the nearby ocean and the mild Mediterranean climate.
Marismas de Sancti Petri are tidal types of marshes. These areas have high landscape value, since they are one of the few places that still have not been altered to use as salt evaporation ponds. On the other hand, Laguna de la Paja is a marshy wetland formed in a flat area with shallow waters. Wildlife here is one of the main attractions, especially birds. What is more, its vegetation is truly special.
You will find two lagoons at Complejo Endorreico de Chiclana. It is located in the countryside, with gentle hills and some not very steep elevations.
We cannot forget about the magnificent beaches in Chiclana, such as La Barrosa and Sancti Petri. The first one is an extensive beach with many beach bars where you can have something to eat while enjoying the beach and its environment. The second one has a high ecological value.
La Barrosa urban park is close to the coast and it has great environmental interest. Go and check out why!
