The beach in Huelva is approx 3km long and consists of golden sand and pebbles. It is accessed via a road which runs through an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is backed by the Juan Carlos dock on the River Odiel. Fronting the Donana National Park there is mile upon mile of beaches between Matalascanas and Mazagon.

Things to Do

In the heart of the city you will find the bullring and the 18th century Baroque style Cathedral or you can take a picnic to Moret Park and stroll around its lake or ride around its cycling paths.

On the banks of the River Tinto, at the Muelle de las Caravelas you can learn of the history of Columbus in the museum and, outside in the lagoon, you can access three reconstructed ships and just imagine life aboard on his voyages of discovery. You can learn more of the journeys of Columbus at the neighbouring La Rabida Monastery.

Donana National Park covers a vast area of sand dunes and wetlands, some of which can be accessed independently but to visit the most protected areas you must join a guided tour. The park is home to wild animals, including deer, boar and wild horses and many water birds as well as being a winter stop off for migratory birds. Tours are available on foot and via 4x4 and boat.

Annual festivals, classed as a national tourist attraction include Easter Week in April and the Carnivals which are usually held in February or March.

Out and About

The main shopping streets in the city run either side of the Calle Palacios, behind the Plaza las Monjas and you will find international brand names as well as plenty of pavement cafes and restaurants.

On the banks of the River Odiel, the sleek curved exterior of the Aqualon Shopping Centre houses a selection of shops and a couple of fast food outlets. On the top floor there are bars and a terrace which looks out over the river.

Nearby Attractions

The Minero Mining Museum provides a fascinating insight to the regions mining history and the train takes you on a journey through unforgettable red and golden landscapes alongside the famous Red River.

El Rocio is a sight to remember with its sand roads, wild west architecture and plenty of fencing to tie your horse to. Of course, it is best known for the huge annual El Rocio Pilgrimmage. The city of Seville is also within an hour drive.

The beaches and golf courses surrounding Isla Canela, Islantilla and El Rompido are all within approx 45 minutes drive.
