The entrance to the beach on foot finds its most comfortable way along the promenade, another option is to choose a nearby walkway from the many that lead to La Barrosa Beach.

Loma del Puerco beach

Further south is Playa del Puerco, popularly known as Novo Sancti Petri beach. The beach, located at the foot of many hotels, still retains its original state, with dunes in some sections and cliffs in others, in addition to the now traditional clean and golden sands of practically the entire Cadiz coastline.

The Loma del Puerco beach is the one that is furthest from the urban center of the city, it is the limit that separates Chiclana from Conil de la Frontera. It is a mostly wild beach , where the green of the local flora blends with the golden sand and the intense blue of the sea, a beautiful beach that invites you to relax.


It is one of the most natural beaches in Chiclana , it also has the service of beach bars, showers and accesses, all designed to enjoy maximum comfort . It is not a very busy beach, even in the high season months, July and August, this beach becomes a great leisure option during the summer months.

To get to know and enjoy the beach, it is essential to get lost on the shore and take a walk to Roche. A short journey where you can observe the best views of the Atlantic Ocean and get to know the most virgin side of this impressive beach in Chiclana de la Frontera.

Sancti Petri beach

Sancti Petri Beach is located in the Sancti Petri Town, also located in an idyllic setting. It is a quiet beach and it is the favorite of sailors and athletes, perfect for practicing water sports such as windsurfing, paddle surfing, kayaking, sailing ... Near the marina, several companies and schools offer their services to teach or rent equipment to those looking for new experiences during their vacations. Its privileged location, in front of the Castle of Sancti Petri, makes it the ideal place to enjoy a magical sunset , from there you can see the island and the Castle of Sancti-Petri, where legend has it the Phoenician temple of Hercules was located.

The Sancti Petri beach is the third beach in Chiclana, it is separated from the La Barrosa beach by the Farallón de Laja Bermeja, at low tide it is possible to cross the slab so that both beaches are temporarily connected. This beach is divided into two areas , the first part from the Farallón cliffs to the breakwater and from this to the Sancti Petri Town.

The area of ​​the cliffs is the most natural and unspoiled part, with great environmental value. The second area is the Poblado part, in this area many sailing schools offer their classes and rental services, it is the perfect beach for practicing water sports , especially for beginners.
