Get away to secluded Vejer de la Frontera! Enjoy the golf, windsurfing and university life.

Vejer de la Frontera is a charming town in the province of Cádiz, located on the top of a hill nearly 700 feet high and just 5 miles from the coast. This unique location, along with the typical architecture of its low buildings and whitewashed façades, make this a must-see stop to enjoy the unique magic of its narrow, winding streets. During a holiday in Vejer de la Frontera you’ll discover the extraordinary atmosphere of its historic old town, its spectacular pristine beach and unparalleled natural environment.

The main attraction of Vejer de la Frontera is the splendid beach of El Palmar, located 6 miles from the centre and known for its fine sand, transparent waters and beautiful natural surroundings, ideal for water sports or sailing. However, in the centre of town, which was officially declared a Historic Site, you can walk up and down its beautiful slopes and take in its cool patios, small palaces and ancient churches.

Start your tour with the medieval, 11th century castle, built in the highest part of Vejer, on a fort dating back to the Arab era. Don’t miss the Iglesia del Divino Salvador church, built in the Gothic-Mudéjar and Late Gothic style on the site of an old mosque. Finally, the Hermitage of Nuestra Señora de La Oliva, patron saint of the town, is home to a beautiful carving of the Virgin. The Carthaginian-type windmills of Vejer are also highly characteristic of the area.

Nature lovers can search for cheap trips to Vejer de la Frontera in order to enjoy the La Breña y Marismas del Barbate Nature Park, with trails that start from the centre of town and really let you explore the beautiful mountainside with its pine trees and cliffs.

If you find a package holiday in Vejer de la Frontera, you will have the opportunity to travel through other towns in the province of Cádiz, such as Conil, Barbate and Chiclana.

A great find!

"We loved this hotel! It was, by far, our favorite place out of many places we stayed over 10 nights. Nice opportunity to stay in a traditional house, rather than a hotel.
