Sancti Petri is where land and sea meet. Located close to Chiclana de la Frontera is an old fishing village set on undulating coastline, where sea and sky frame the scene. This is a paradise in the south of the Bay of Cadiz; a place to enjoy the beaches and their crystal clear waters.
The jewel in the crown of the area is the Sancti Petri Salt Marshes Natural Park, a vast area of wetlands, which have been wonderfully preserved. Limited human impact has helped maintain the park’s extensive biodiversity, with many different species of flora and fauna.

A number of centres offer a wide range of activities to enjoy this natural wetland environment. You can take a quad bike or a jeep for a spin, ride a mountain bike or head to the water for adventure: diving, yachting, windsurfing or sport fishing are all on offer. And if you’re new to the activity, don’t worry, because these professional centres will do everything to get you started – don’t miss out on the adventure!
Another activity you won’t want to miss out on is a kayak tour. Sancti Petri-Kayak offers various excursions to get to know the park first hand: one takes you through the wetlands, another to the castle and the third, Kayak-Therapy, is very special. Similar to the first, it’s a tour through the wetlands, the difference is that you leave just two hours before sunset so you can watch how the light changes the colours of the landscape, allowing you to appreciate in even greater detail the charm and the textures of this paradise. It really is a relaxing therapy in itself.

When you find yourself in a spot that’s as well placed as Sancti Petri you shouldn’t miss the chance to visit the sites of interest nearby, such as La Barrosa beach in Chiclana de la Frontera. A cliff is the only barrier to reaching this eight kilometre long stretch of sea and sand.
Conil is another fabulous option for a visit. The town has over 15 kilometres of beaches, such as Castilnovo, Los Bateles or La Fontanilla, all with fine, white, sand and clear waters to tempt you to go for a dip. But if you’d rather something more secluded, try the idyllic, sheltered coves to be found amidst the spectacular cliffs. Coves such as Camacho, Pitones, Melchor and the Cala Encendida are just some of the many outstanding spots.
