Situated behind a sandy peninsular, the picturesque fishing village of El Rompido exemplifies what is so unique about Andalusia’s Costa De La Luz. It is so tranquil and unhurried, coming here feels like stepping back in time. On the river Piedras estuary, the village faces a long sandy spit of land, which protects its water, so once you are stretched on its heavenly shores, you are faced with fabulous view over the sandbar, the Flecha del rompido and the gentle seas.
Perfect for swimming, it’s one of Andalucia best places to catch the rays. And if you fancy some solitude book a fishing boat from the harbor to whisk you to the Flecha. On the way back, meander around El Rompido’s pretty, narrow streets and waterfront with down to earth tapas bars and gaze at a spectacular sunset… it’s about as good as Spain ever gets.
When you feel like some activity, El Rompido with its marina, sport club and golf club is the ideal place for enjoying sailing, diving, windsurfing, kite surfing, trekking and above all golf. Our golf hotel in El Rompido offers you a magnificent 36-hole golf course. In the vicinity of El Rompido, you will also find the Aquopolis Cartaya water park and Karting de Cartaya racing track, where you can enjoy an unforgettable family day out.
Alternatively, lose yourself in the stunning scenery, roaming and bird watching in the pristine, protected marshlands whilst breathing in stunning vistas over the Atlantic.
