The Punta del Boquerón is an idyllic and little-known enclave located in the Bay of Cadiz Natural Park. It is an unspoilt beach that can be reached on foot from Cadiz city and is distinctive for its ecosystem of dunes and marshes.

Punta del Boquerón, covering an area of 74.53 hectares, was declared a Natural Monument in 2003. It is an area of mixed typology with different elements of interest including its geology, how local culture interacts with the nature there, especially living organisms.

The islet, which belongs to San Fernando , has a really interesting geographical feature in that the landmass sticks out into the sea in the shape of a sandy arrowhead.

It should be noted that the Junta de Andalucía limits free access for boats to Punta del Boquerón during the summer season, as stated in an official government bulletin (BOJA) as this natural monument needs protecting.
