Situated in the province of Huelva in western side of Andalucia, El Rompido is one of the most uncrowded spots along Huelva’s Costa de la Luz, and has managed to remain relatively untouched by tourist development. This charming fishing village is peaceful yet vibrant, and idyllically situated along the Río Piedras river estuary, it is one of the most uniquely beautiful places in all Andalucía.

The Doñana National Park is also nearby, and with its diverse landscape of salt marshes, pine woods, sand dunes and tidal creeks, it has become a very significant breeding ground for thousands of European and African birds. Exploring this remarkable park is a must, whatever type of Costa de la Luz holiday you’re after.
