Miles of beaches, farming and fishing traditions, and impressive churches make Rota the ideal place to enjoy some well-deserved R&R.

Rota is a town located in the province of Cádiz, in Andalusia. It’s surrounded by more than 9 miles of beaches, and it won't be easy to pick your favourite. There’s Playa de la Ballena, for example, the largest in the municipality, located in unspoiled natural surroundings with gentle waves. Thanks to our cheap trips to Rota you’ll also be able to explore Playa de la Costilla, the busiest and most touristy beach, as it’s next to the promenade: be sure to take a relaxing stroll with the sunset background after enjoying a long dip.

If you’re in the mood to get your camera out and visit some monuments, head over to Castillo de Luna palace, declared a Site of Cultural Interest. Built in the 13th century, this castle with a rectangular floor plan and five towers was erected around a beautiful Gothic-style courtyard. It’s now home to the town hall. Your next stop should be church of Nuestra Señora de la O, a stone Gothic-Renaissance building built in the 16th century, which is now the main church in Rota.

Package deals to Rota wouldn’t be complete without a visit to the Mayetería Farming Interpretation Centre. Mayetería is a type of farming based on small landholdings typical of this town in Cádiz. Book your guided tour in advance and enjoy a day exploring the cottages of the farmers that is both fun and educational, as you learn all about this curious method of working the land.

Another natural attraction is the Rota fishing farms. These small plots of land near the shore date all the way back to the Roman era. At low tide, fish and molluscs are trapped here, making them easier to fish.

The nearest airport is Jerez de la Frontera. What are you waiting for? Check out our offers for flight plus hotel to Rota!
