Distances calculated from Hotel Fuerte El Rompido
East of the marshland of the River Piedras and Flecha de El Rompido Natural Beauty Spot is El Rompido beach, next to the River Piedras estuary, flanked by a beautiful and characteristic fishing port.
The beach known as Flecha (Arrow) de El Rompido is a unique sandy formation which opens out into the Atlantic Ocean from a virgin beach which can be accessed thanks to the boat services which depart from the river bank.
Nueva Umbría beach is bathed by Atlantic waters where La Flecha de El Rompido begins next to Terrón port. Its virgin, wild appearance evokes tranquillity in the heart of La Flecha natural beauty spot, a stretch of sand which extends between the ocean and the river Piedras. The vegetation, made up mainly of Stone Pines as well as toadflax and coastal junipers under special protection, shelter interesting animal species such as the chameleon. It is a nudist beach.
This beach, accessed by boat (15 min) or a walkway which crosses a beautiful dune ecosystem, has a sun lounger service in summer.
Caño de la Culata beach forms an unrivalled, privileged landscape, with sand dunes and pine groves, among the typical riverside vegetation and sandy expanses. The caños (streams) were the old channels of streams, branches and tributaries of rivers which snake between the sand dunes to flow into the sea forming raised areas of sand.
This small paradise of crystal waters was deserted in the 16th century due to pirate and Berber raids. More than 500 years later the beach conserves this tranquillity as it is an uncrowded fine sandy beach with large sand dunes. Among pine trees and junipers there is a viewpoint to gaze out at the marvellous views and sunsets
The sand dunes, the pine groves and the long beaches stretching as far as the eye can see form, without a doubt, one of the most charming landscapes on the Costa de la Luz. Proud of having one of the lowest urban population densities in Spain, the almost virgin areas of Nuevo Portil beach enable visitors to rediscover the pleasure of being in contact with nature at its purest.
