Surfing, windsurfing, sailing, scuba diving, kitesurfing and bodyboarding; the beaches of Conil de la Frontera are a world apart when it comes to water sports or just relaxing, as there are areas to suit everyone’s tastes:
Approximate distances from the Hotel Fuerte Conil–Costa Luz
Playa de La Fontanilla (a 5-minute walk, just in front of the hotel)
Fantastic fine sand beach, perfect for relaxing or a long walk.
Playa de Los Bateles (a 10-minute walk from the hotel , 5 minutes by bike)
The beauty of Los Bateles has made it into one of the most popular beaches along the Costa de la Luz, with a predominantly young atmosphere. If you carry on walking, across the river you come to Castilnovo beach, with a more secluded atmosphere, next to El Palmar.
Playa El Palmar (a 30-minute walk from the hotel, 20 by bike or 10 minutes by car)
El Palmar beach is ideal if you are looking for a quiet spot. Eight kilometres long, it has retained its natural charm, making it, with Castilnovo, one of the most pristine beaches in Cadiz.In addition,it is considered to be one of the favourite surf spots in Andalucia due to the notable presence of waves during the majority of the year.
Calas de Conil (1.30 h walking, 40 minutes by bike and 10 minutes by car)
The north coast offers cliffs and secluded coves, such as Calas de Roche with nudist areas and Cala del Aceite which has a more family-oriented atmosphere.
El Roqueo and Fuente del Gallo (10 minutes walking)
A beautiful beach, although rockier than the others, but still lovely, quiet and great for families.
