There is also a Carrefour hypermarket at Cartaya which sells almost everything!!
BEACHES AND OTHER ACTIVITIES: The local beach stretches for 14km and is very suitable for young children as the Fleche del Rompido protects the beach from the high winds and rough currents of the Atlantic ocean.
The beach is backed by juniper woods and sand dunes and alongside are cycle tracks which go as far as Punta Umbria. Bike hire and horse riding are very popular and available locally for hire.
There are plenty of sporting activities on the beach plus boat trips across to the Fleche del Rompido.
Just outside El Rompido is the Kartodromo de Cartaya (Carting track) open year round and the very popular Aquopolis (water park) which opens normally the middle of June until first week in September.
Tennis Courts are also on site.

Amanda Cooke purchased this house in 2006
Over the years, I have rented quite a few holiday homes and more often than not, have been disappointed with either the standard or its location. As we all work hard throughout the year, our vacations are important and for these reasons I have ensured Sunflowers is of a very high standard and I have also selected its location very carefully.
On arrival, you will be greeted by my housekeeper who will hand over the keys and show you around Sunflowers. You will have her contact details should you need anything during your stay.
I also have a website with more information and photographs:
Beautiful area, very Spanish which is what we wanted. Very close to the beach and other amenities (fabulous cafes along the beach!!!). The house was spotless and very tidy when we arrived, we could not have hoped for more!
Need a car to visit other areas (although I am told there is a bus but not very often) which was not a problem for us at all, surrounding areas are fabulous with great shops in Huelva, although a bit of a long drive but totally worth it!!
All in all we had an amazing stay and would definately return soon!!
We have stayed twice at Sunflowers in July with our toddler and loved it. The house is well furnished, with quality bedding, the decor is exactly like on the pictures, the house is comfortable, the kitchen well equipped and the housing complex high quality. It has an underground garage and the pool is very well maintained and has a lifeguard (Spanish regulations).
We were met upon arrival by Amanda's rep locally and everything went seamlessly both times. we found the house upon arrival very clean.
Nuevo portil is located in a pretty untouched area of Spain, with plenty of restaurants and shops nearby and the beaches are wonderful.
The fact that the house has Wifi is a definite bonus and it also has a good stock of DVD and English books.
The terrace is great for having lunch and dinner. A great accommodation at a good price.
This is a very well fitted and furnished holiday rental on 3 floors.A lot of thought and taste has gone into the house and it works very well.The efficient aircon was brilliant in our "high season stay".
Patios were well shaded if needed and well used.The garden access to the pool area,and the pools themselves were tremendous,particularly for the 2 small children in our party.
The information folder and local maps were great.The owner could not have been more helpful.
The area is great and very Spanish. Fish is definitely on the menu.
Golf courses here and at Rompido were good but overwatered and only open at 8-8.30.
Visit highlights were; the beach;Ayamonte;Seville;and La Rabida.
I would strongly recommend the villa and area.
We rented this villa for a week with friends and family and children. The villa is in wonderful condition and has everything that one requires when staying in a self contained villa. Everything seems to of been thought of in great detail down to the supply of books and dvd's. This part of Spain is very Spanish and is good if you wish to get an idea of how the Spanish live. I would say that the food was not very good unless you absolutely love seafood and don’t mind eating it for lunch and dinner for the duration of your stay. Overall I would say that I would definitely visit that part of Spain again and if you really want to visit or even stay somewhere quite charming then visit a place called Ayamonte which is about 45 mins drive away and very easy to find travelling by car.
Our only one issue was the problems we had in getting our security deposit back, which took over a month, along with a lot of communication between ourselves and the owner, only to then receive it and find that money had been deducted and no reason giving. Due to the reason above I personally would not recommend friends to this particular accommodation, however, the location is a definite.
Sunflowers is very well maintained and very clean.
The interior of the house is beautifully furnished to a very high standard with first class appliances with a well fitted kitchen.
The beds were very comfortable and there were plenty of towels provided, even a huge beach towel each.
This property is exactly as advertised, probably better. It certainly shone out from anything else. I would go as far to say as it is the best holiday rental I've stayed in ever.
The owner had a fantastic information book in the property giving us plenty of ideas of where to eat, where to go etc. Also emergency and useful numbers which was a great help.
The restaurants in this area's are slightly more expensive than other Costa's but you get what you pay for and the food was excellent and the service too.
The whole area reminded us of what Spain used to be 30 years ago. Take a Spanish phrase book with you! No, don’t. The owner had even provided a phrase book and plenty of local maps too.
We didn’t have a wet day but there were also plenty of dvd's, books and indoor games available.
The beach was about a 10 minute walk and beautiful.
The swimming pools were sparkling.
We didn’t want to leave Sunflowers and will certainly be returning.
Huelva (the closest city to NP) has excellent shopping facilities and claims to be the “Flamenco Capital” with many of the buildings dating back to the 15th century.
South of Huelva is Matalascañas which is packed with local restaurants and a beautiful long sandy beach. Close by is the Donana National Park where you can see a huge variety of birds and Lynx, all amongst beautiful scenery, which includes marshlands, pine forests, sand dunes and freshwater lakes.
A city not to be missed is the beautiful and vibrant Seville which is approx a 40 minute drive from Huelva. It lies of the banks of the Guadalquivir River and is one of the largest historical centres in Europe.
West of Nuevo Portil is the pretty fishing village of El Rompido (5 minute drive) where you will find excellent beach restaurants serving tasty good value local and international cuisine.
A definite must is a visit to the border town of Ayamonte as it typifies the ambience and architecture of this area.
Other Activities: Water Park and Karting 10 minutes away
