Huelva offers immense beaches scattered with shells and with nothing but
water, dunes and pines froves in sight. However, there are also places
on the coast, with a lively atmosphere which cater for the young. Quality
tourism is represented by an abundance of godd hotels and golf courses.
Punta Umbría, enjoys a mild, slightly humid microclimate and has
long beaches fringed with pine trees or junipers. In the direction of
Cartaya the traveller passes through Laguna del Portil, El Rompido and
Ría del Piedras. This is a quiet stretch of coast with family beaches
and the opportunity to practise all manner of water sports and stay in beautiful El Rompido hotels. Further still,
nearing Portugal now, are Lepe, Isla Cristina and Ayamonte. Lepe is as
acclaimed for its strawberries as Isla Cristina is for its fishing. Ayamonte
is reflected in the River Guadiana, which separated ir from Portugal in
the past, but which now joins the two. It is the biggest town on the coastline
and near to paradisiacal Isla Canela.
