Chipiona is a popular swimming resort just off the mouth of significant Spanish river Guadalquivir and Doñana National Park. During off-season it looks a little like a ghost town, but from spring to autumn it is full of life and crowds of tourists. The most famous monuments here are the highest Spanish lighthouse (third in Europe and fifth in the world) and the cathedral situated almost on the beach. It is also possible to see small old town, castle and marina.
 

Beach in Chipiona

The main beach in Chipiona is about kilometer and a half long and stretches between the lighthouse and cathedral. Of course, the sand continues for many kilometers farther and farther to the south.

Off season

The beach will practically be only yours during off-season. There will be only kite surfers and a few runners here. But this is completely different during the main season; there are crowds of tourists then.

One of the attractions of the town is also the local high lighthouse reaching a height of 69 meters, which ranks it to first place in Spain.

Sunset in Chipiona

From Chipiona is due to its location a beautiful view of the sunset that can be enjoyed either directly from the beach or from a restaurant on the promenade.
