Novo Sancti Petri, Costa de la Luz, Spain
Novo Sancti Petri
A popular choice with golfers due to the high number of golf courses in the area, Novo Sancti Petri has miles of soft sand beaches and easy access to the historic cities of Cadiz and Jerez.
The wide sands of La Barossa beach run for the length of the resort and beyond (approx 8km) and is served with public facilities and well-spaced groups of sun loungers and straw parasols.
The middle section of the beach is backed by a promenade for approx 1.5km. North of the promenade towards the marina and, south to the neighbouring resort of Roche, the beach is more natural and backed by dunes and pines. The waters are clear and blue but, being on the Atlantic coast, the surf can be more suitable to bodyboarding than swimming.
Things to Do
Golf is not the only activity available. There are children's playgrounds and cycling paths through the resort gardens. Quads, horse-riding, water sports, sailing and diving schools are all readily available.
Take a boat trip from the Marina to the Island of Sancti Petri which lies a kilometre or so off shore. Once on the island you can take a guided tour of the Castle and learn of its ancient history with links to Hercules, Ceasar and Hannibal.
Out and About
The beach promenade is pedestrianised and lined with palm trees, lanterns, benches and lawned areas. There are plenty of car parks, beach bars and restaurants along it's length.
For a more Spanish environment, head into the neighbouring town of Chiclana (8km). See the octagonal Hermitage of Santa Ana, located between the sports courts and the relaxing green gardens of Santa Ana Park. Of historic interest, head for the Plaza de Mayor to see the San Juan Bautista church and the important Aguila Clocktower.
The Natural Park of Bahia Cadiz (24km) is located just off the main road onto the Cadiz peninsula and the ancient city itself is a further 12km (10 minutes drive).
The city of Cadiz is seamless blend of narrow streets and plazas, museums, churches, palaces, tree-lined avenues and designer shops. In contrast, the Natural Park will appeal to birdwatchers as the wetlands are teaming with breeding and migrating birds; flamingos, storks and other wading birds.
