Snorkel off the coast of Conil and see canons and canon balls left behind after the Battle of Trafalgar.
Go to the Beach
The closest ones are at Conil, El Palmar, Roche and La Barrosa. Fantastic golden sands on the unspoilt Atlantic coast.
Take a kayak out around the coves of Roche or the marshlands around San Fernando paddling past thousands of Island crabs and flying fish.
Wander around the streets of Conil and try the local delicacies, including fried fish, sea urchins, shrimp fritters and whitebait, washed down with a glass of cold glass of sherry.
Carthusian Horse Centre
Visit this stud farm on the outskirts of Jerez, the most important reserve of Carthusian horses in the world. See over 200 horses grazing in natural surroundings, mares and foals.
Wander around the old town of Vejer
Visit this beautiful white hill top town and enjoy a formal meal or simple tapas at one of the many restaurants it has to offer. Or simply wander round its narrow streets, visiting artesan shops and watching the world go by.
Visit and watch how a farm rears its livestock, fighting bulls and working horses on the outskirts of Medina Sidonia in the heart of Andalucia.
Sip Sherry in Jerez de la Frontera
Visit one of the many traditonal bodegas and see how sherry, brandy and vinegar are produced. Tio Pepe is especially well organized with tours and generous samples! It's easy to find too.
Visit Tarifa at the far Southern Tip of Andalucía
See the kite surfers (you could have a go yourself!), explore the castle and the old town and marvel at the views across to Morocco; Africa is just 11 miles away across the Straits.
Explore Medina Sidonia
See the cathedral and the Roman fortress and explore the old town that was once largely owned by the wealthiest family of Spain. Also stop off at one of the coffee shops in the square and try one of the famous cakes.
Be amazed by the scale of these largely unheard of Roman remains. A whole Roman city, tucked in a curve of the coastline. You can follow your archaeological exploration with a great fish lunch right there on the beachside!
For romantics and foodies alike. Some of the best fish restaurants can be found right at the beach so sip the wine whilst watching the sun sink slowly into the ocean. Wonderful!
Visit Cape Trafalgar and Lighthouse
In 1805 the famous naval battle was fought just 5 miles off shore from the headland and you can begin to imagine the scene at this atmospheric and beautiful spot. The beaches here are superb too.
Go Horse Riding
From an hour to a whole day. Made to measure outings and treks and it's a great way to view the scenery.
The old town is an absolute gem. Some of things to experience - visit the Cathedral, climb the Torre Tavira, explore the castle and get a sense of its naval history, or simply sit in a patio, bedecked with flowers and people watch.
Try Whale and Dolphin Watching
You can take a boat out into the Straits from either Tarifa or Algeciras to watch dolphins, pilot and sperm whales.
Discover its cathedral and the exquisite Moorish palace of Alcazar. You can even take a city bus tour - it's a great way to see the sights.
Right on the beach at Sanlucar in August!
Visit Doñana National Park
Take a boat from Sanlucar and see its southern edges or drive to Matalascanas and do the full tour in a 4-wheel drive desert bus! - this is Europe's largest birdlife reserve and quite unique.
Take a Drive and Explore
The stunning scenery within easy reach; it's a beautiful mountain drive via Alcala, Ubrique, Grazelama and El Bosque.
Visit Gibraltar for the Day
Definitely not Spain - and not Britain either. A good day trip - the best bit is the Rock itself so take a cable car ride or a taxi or walk... to the top!
Take the Kids to Aquasherry Water Park...
... just outside Jerez. Make the children the excuse and have a great time yourself on the slides and flumes.
Visit Conil Market
Flea market selling clothes, shoes, bed linen, swimwear and much more.
There are some great courses in the area, all available to non-members. Golf Campano is only 10 minutes away by car, there are 5 fantastic courses at Sancti Petri (15 min drive), aswell as the FDehesa de Montenmedio close to Vejer and Montecastillo near Jerez.
