Chiclana de la Frontera in Andalusia is situated between Cadiz and Tarifa on the Costa de la Luz. Chiclana belongs to the "Ruta de los Pueblos Blancos", the route of the white villages, which are characteristic for the south of Andalusia. 

Chiclana is the fusion of perfectly natural environment with fantastic beaches and a great infrastructure which doesn't harm the beauty of this coast line.

The accommodations of Chiclana La Barrosa and the neighboring urbanization of Novo Sancti Petri can be found behind some sand dunes that seperate the beach from the urban district where all the infrastructure is being offered.

Chiclana has experienced a major change within the last 20 years, when tourism arrived to this region. Back in the days Chiclana counted a few thousand inhabitants, until today it grew up to 73.000 inhabitants and represents one of the most important touristic centers of the Costa de la Luz. 

More than 10km of unspoiled white beaches (awarded with the Blue Flag), all kinds of touristic accommodations in any category, the very lively atmosphere of the beach promenade at Playa La Barrosa, best conditions for sports like golf, kitesurfing or windsurfing, and the exciting night life are guarantee enough to spend some of the best holidays you ever had in Chiclana de la Frontera

Chiclana creates great ambience with its friendly people of Andalusian mentality, its flamenco and whine culture, and its natural preserves which come up to the highest expectations.

Come and discover Chiclana, the true paradise on the Costa de la Luz!

Fun & leisure in Chiclana de la Frontera

Chiclana de la Frontera convinces with an interesting nightlife. Apart from its beaches, the nightlife is Chiclana's biggest attraction in the summer months.

Walking along the beach promenade of Playa La Barrosa you'll see numerous bars, cafes and clubs for any kind of taste and age.

In contrast to many other villages on the Costa de la Luz there is more acceptance of the community in Chiclana towards the nightlife. That's why most bars in summer stay open til the early morning.

The gastronomical offer in Chiclana is amazing. Try the typical Andalusian recipes for fresh local fish like the tuna and sword fish, the unbeatable "Jamon" of the black Andalusian pigs or a filet of the best Spanish beef. 

We recommend to join the food with a bottle of Rioja and for dessert a glass of sherry from the nearby vineyards around Jerez de la Frontera.

There's plenty of sports offers in Chiclana de la Frontera. Windsurfing, kitesurfing, surfing, horseback riding, golf, mountainbiking, hiking, diving and Sailing are just a few examples. 

Chiclana also provides a well equipped fitness studio for all those of you, who want to work out in their in their holidays.

Thanks to the warm climate all year arround, you can practize your favourite sport in Chiclana at any time.

One of the nicest golf resorts in Europe is the Sancti Petri Golf Club. The club is only few minutes away from Chiclana by car. Enjoy your round along the coast and relax after the game on the beautiful beach. 

Besides this one there are many more superb golf clubs around Chiclana. Combine the best of these clubs to the Andalusian golf vacation of your life time!

Beaches of Chiclana de la Frontera


The beaches of Chiclana de la Frontera are amongst the nicest in all Andalusia. The fine, white sand will satisfy even the most demanding visitors. 

Visit the fantastic beaches around Chiclana: the beaches names are Playa La BarrosaPlaya de Roche,Playa LavaculosPlaya Punta de PiedrasPlaya Novo Sancti Petri and Playa Torre del Puerco.

We recommend to use enough sun screen at any time of the day, because the Andalusian sun can cause sunburns quicker than you think.

To cool down from the heat there is nothing more refreshing than cristal-blue water of the Atlantic ocean. It wan't be any warmer than 20°C in the summer, but neither any colder than 16°C in the winter. It is recommendable to wear a neopren suit for water sports.

The water here is very clean and there's no strong currents to be aware of. Jelly fish and other unpleasant marine animals are not to be found. 

Climate & Weather in Chiclana

While temperatures in the summer at the Andalusian coast are comfortably warm, it may be unbearably hot just 20km further in the country. Seville, for example, is used to have above 40°C every day while on the coast you only feel 25°C.

In winter time it hardly gets any colder than 16°C, except for the nights which could end up being around 10°C. The temperatures also depend on the wind direction: Levante brings warmer air from the land, Poniente brings cool air form the sea.

The average humidity in summer is around 30%, in the winter it is above 50%.

The probability of rain is very low apart from January til April. Statistically the Costa de la Luz provides more than 300 days of sunshine per year. In fact, rain is always welcome to assure the water supply in summer.
