La Caleta Beach
Holiday Travel Guide

Visit the two intriguing castles that flank this historic Spanish beach and relax on its photogenic stretch of golden sand.

La Caleta Beach is a popular natural harbor with a rich history of Roman, Carthaginian and Phoenician settlers. Among the smallest beaches in the city, its intriguing past and excellent views of castles have inspired poets and writers. Capture photos of the two fortresses that have survived this beach’s intriguing background.

Bring your family to this blue-flag beach, which has amenities including showers, restrooms and stalls. Lifeguards patrol this sandy bay, making it an ideal place to swim with your kids. Note that the beach is among the most popular in the city and can get quite busy on weekends.

Lay down a blanket and enjoy a picnic with a view of the sea and the castles. Work on your tan and cool down with a refreshing dip in the water. Stay for sunset for excellent photo opportunities as the sky turns crimson.

Wander along the Fernando Quiñones Promenade to reach the gate of the Fortress of San Sebastián. It dates back to the 18th century, when it was built to protect the northern section of the city. Gaze up at its lighthouse, which stands atop a Moorish watchtower.

Go to the northern side of the beach for the Fortress of Santa Catalina. Constructed in the 17th century, the castle was built with an Italian design and served as a military prison.

Use the beach as a base and head to the many restaurants and bars a short walk east. Explore the stalls of the Cádiz Central Market, where you will find meat, fish and oysters, among other delicacies.

La Caleta Beach is in the southwestern part of the historic center of Cádiz. See sights in the area, such as the Plaza Tío de la Tiza, the Gran Teatro Falla and the Parque Genovés.
