Cold wind and many places were closed the to this being a beach community. BUT, if you want to be alone to walk the beach and explore the dunes it is a great time, just dress for the weather. Drawback is there was some damaged areas of boardwalk through the dunes that were hazards to children and since it was... More

We were staying in Seville and decided on an afternoon at the beach so drove the 80km (1 hour) to Matalascanas. A beautiful place, but to say it was like a ghost town would be an understatement, we probably saw 4 or 5 people the whole time we were there. No beach front cafes open and a little run down...

I think it's quite normal for folks to sun bathed half naked I am pertaining to the women...it is a resort type of beach although hotels... More

The park or the village? the first is exellent with proper activities to a natural park you can fell the effort to resist the turistic pressure and yet they keep working with a serious envyromental target. The village makes real the expression "cold bed " a huge amount of houses only open a few days per year.

The beach is a long (but not very wide) golden strip of sand bathed by warm waters - which is it best asset. There are nice bars with food and drink to complement your stay on a day at the beach.

The seafront is not well conserved at all, can see dust and untidiness every where. The coast looks nice. Even a rock without no sense in the middle of the beach makes the views even worst of the whole coastline. The water's been quite dirty three times I have been there. Would avoid this beach definitely. Enjoy the Cadiz Beaches... More

Not at all what I had thought it was going to be like. The funny concrete thing in the water I have forgotten what is was all about.

At the beginning I must say I haven't visited the centre of Matalascanas and the main beach. I went to the right were the beach is still sandy and the water warm but there are not so many people and you can really admire the beauty of this place and switch off. Although the wind is strong, don't let it... More
