Cadiz is a beautiful province with over 100 miles of beaches and coves starting from Sanlucar de Barrameda, an hour away from Seville, to San Roque which is more than 2 hours from Seville. All the best beaches of Cadiz are within an easy day trip from Seville if you are driving. There are also famous and popular beaches in the city of Cadiz, which is a perfect day excursion from Seville.
Cadiz by public transport
La Caleta beach just outside Cadiz city is a perfect spot with amazing sunsets, if you are traveling by public transport from Seville. La caleta has many facilities and is perfect for a day out. It is very scenic too, flanked by two castles Castillo de Santa Catalina and Castillo de San Sebastián.
On the other end of the city is Playa de la Cortadura, with its sandy dunes. There is a nice boardwalk too and the beach is more crowded than La Caleta.
If you are driving
With a car from Seville, you will easily be able to get to the best beaches in the Cadiz province. Bolonia beach is one of the best in Andalusia. Nearby is also the virgin beach of Zahara de los Atunes and the water-sporty Tarifa beaches.
Other options for you are Punta Umbría, Caños de Meca, Cala de Aceite, and La Fontanilla.
Start early, stop at Jerez
It is a good idea to start early from Seville and plan a few hours’ break at Jerez en route. This will work whether you are driving or taking public transport. Jerez is the home of sherry and has some nice attractions including the horse ballet. It is also a lovely town to walk around.
From Seville, your route to any of the beaches will also take you through some history, food, and maybe some white villages. So plan your trip in a way that you are able to stop often, if you are driving. If you are taking the bus, or train, see if you can route your ride through a small town.
