  • Cuesta Maneli, in Huelva. Also known as El Aspillero beach, in Almonte, it stands out for its wooden walkway ending in stairs which lead down to the sand.

  • Los Genoveses, in Almería. In the Cabo de Gata Natural Park, it is a bay of particular beauty with fine golden sand dunes and the area’s typical prickly pear cacti and pitas.

  • Matalascañas, in Huelva. A beach of fine, white sand just over five kilometres long, making it one of the largest on the Costa de la Luz.
