A walk to this place was (and is) highly recommended, especially to see the sunset. Lovely sandy beaches either side.

This is one of the most unique places in Cadiz. But of course it's not really IN it. There is a pathway to the tiny almost-island and it's a lovely walk, but if you really like castles a bit of a disappointment because it is...More
