The province of Cadiz in the Andalucía region of southern Spain has 285 kilometres of coastline, from Sanlúcar de Barrameda to Sotogrande, in San Roque. There are around a hundred beaches and there would be loads more if we were to mention all those little coves that have no name. The main characteristic of the Cadiz coastline is its fine, golden sands that, together with the cool, turquoise waters, make up a picture-perfect scene. They are beaches to delight all the senses.

Condé Nast's Traveler magazine, a benchmark in the sector, has compiled a list of the 30 best beaches in Cadiz. It includes the northwest coast, with the long, sandy beaches of Chipiona, Sanlúcar and Rota, passing through the Bay of Cadiz, then stopping along the Costa de la Luz from Chiclana to Tarifa and on to the Mediterranean beaches of La Línea, Algeciras and Sotogrande.

Here is the full list......
