Destination guide

No Spain, no gain—see Andalusia's best in oceanfront Cadiz

Set on a narrow peninsula in the Andalusia region of southern Spain, Cadiz is a charming seaside town known for its colorful buildings, medieval plazas, and its historic, walled Old Town. Visitors flock to the region for its mild climate, Atlantic beaches, and seafood-centric regional cuisine, as well as a lively, whimsical carnival that takes over the city for 2 weeks each winter. With a Cadiz vacation rental, you'll be smack in the middle of a typical Andalusian city, and close to local landmarks like the Cadiz Cathedral and the ancient Roman Theatre.

Things to do

Climb to new heights for a unique perspective on Cadiz

More than just another pretty beach, Cadiz is home to a bounty of historic buildings and plazas dating as far back as the Middle Ages and beyond. At the 18th-century Cadiz Cathedral, you can get a firsthand look at the Baroque-style architecture popular at the time. You can also climb the cathedral's Levante Tower for a unique bird's-eye view of the city. Or you can explore the city's past at the Museum of Cadiz, where you'll find local history exhibits focusing on the art and archeology of the city.

Activities

Ready, playa one—Cadiz's beaches are serious business

Perched on the Atlantic coast, Cadiz is first and foremost a waterfront city, and it's got the beaches to prove it. A local favorite is La Caleta, a slender strip of shoreline flanked by 2 castles. It boasts fine sand and a lively atmosphere for seaside activities, including sunbathing, swimming, fishing, and boating. The more boisterous La Victoria is a popular destination for visitors of all ages, and the beachfront avenue is lined with shops, restaurants, and cafes. And If you're visiting in the winter, the rambunctious Carnival of Cadiz is always worth a visit.

Weather

Sensational seasons in sunny, seaside Cadiz

Cadiz has a hot summer Mediterranean climate, which means warm-to-hot summers and mild, relatively warm winters. There's not much rainfall throughout the year, and the city gets more than 3,000 hours of sunshine per year. Average summer highs peak around 82 degrees in July and August, while winter temperatures generally range from 50 to 62 degrees between December and February. Thanks to its ample beaches and pleasant year-round temperatures, you'll find that prices for Cadiz vacation rentals tend not to fluctuate too much from one season to the next.

Natural features

Getting to know insular, peninsular Cadiz

Cadiz sits on a narrow strip of land in the Atlantic Ocean, attached to mainland Spain by a series of bridges and highways. The area is known for its wealth of broad, sandy beaches, though you'll also find a number of rocky promontories and low-lying waterfront flatlands. Eagle-eyed visitors can spot numerous species of birds and marine life in the area, including gulls and terns, and even the occasional flamingo, whale, or dolphin. Your Cadiz vacation rental will put you right at the center of Andalusia's sunny, waterfront playground.
