Rhino guide to the south of Spain

Todays Date: September 25, 2018

Most people travelling to the south of Spain will head off towards Malaga and the Costa del Sol, but is this really the best place to get in touch with Spain? Why not take a look a little further west at the fantastic, but often overlooked area of Cadiz?

This area is predominantly a Spanish tourist location, so if you’re going there you can’t expect everybody to speak English. You would do very well to pick up some Spanish and it’s a great place to practice if you’re learning. You will probably want to keep somebody nearby who can get by with Spanish in case you’re not confident in your own skills, but you can definitely make more of a connection with Spain than you can in a holiday resort.

Like a lot of places in Spain, events aren’t publicised widely. When I went there was a music festival taking place and if it hadn’t been for some friends I had out there I wouldn’t have known about it. But it definitely wasn’t to be missed, a blend of general pop/rock music that went on until the early hours of the morning, and despite being an outdoor event, the warm temperature kept the night comfortable.

The Cadiz area has around 250km of coast and the beaches are simply superb; the coast is covered in bright white sand. Worth keeping in mind are the number of naturist beaches dotted around, for example the south of the beach in El Palmar. If you’re interested or think you might be offended if you stroll too far it would probably be worth finding out where they are.

In the summer months the southerly wind from Africa can make the temperature stifling, some months hitting an average high of 33 degrees C. Assuming you’re lucky with the wind however, the temperature is hot, but not disagreeably so, although it’s advisable to go outside the peak of summer.

Cadiz itself is one of the oldest towns in Western Europe, thought to have been a settlement for some 3000 years, and as such has some interesting sights. For a start, the skyline in the old part of the city is much the same as it was in medieval times due to being built on a sand spit. The cost of building foundations for larger buildings would be very high. Things you will probably want to see in Cadiz include the Cathedral, the view from the top of the Torre Tower, which still commands a 360 degree view of the city, and the Sunset from the beach.

The city is also quite a good place to go for the nightlife, with many bars dotted around the city and coast as well as being a university town and offering a number of
carnival events which tend to run throughout the year.

For me, this is one of the best places to really get in touch with Spain, just far enough removed from the normal British holiday sites, but still busy enough to have plenty to offer the holidaymaker.
