There are many wonderful beaches in Huelva which are worth a visit. It is not surprising to have thousands of tourists flocking to Huelva every weekend throughout the year for a great time at the beaches for some fun in the sun.

Punta Umbria beach

This is a lovely beach between Ria de Huelva and the Atlantic Ocean. It is wide and clean with fine golden sand. It has the coveted Blue Flag award for top quality on cleanliness and amenities. It is very close to Laguna del Portil, Marismas del Odiel and Enebrales Punta Umbria. These are protected natural environments; the Laguna is a lake that is home to a large big population and other protected species like the chameleon. Marismas is a natural park of large wetlands that is well preserved with 17,754 acres for thousands of migratory feathered species. Enebrales is 29,652 acres wide lush juniper forest.

Inhabitants

The inhabitants of Punta Umbria are varied from ancient times; the Phoenicians, Romans and Greeks left their cultural influences with many ancient monuments. There are Roman remains which depicted the local fishermen’s homes and salted fish production in the 2nd to 5th centuries.

The British also arrived in the 19th century to set up a mining company called Rio Tinto before making Punta Umbria a beach resort.

Punta Umbria may be very quiet during winter but it is packed with tourists during summer. There are plenty of water sports offered such as surfing and sailing. Its local fishing port is the largest in the region with fresh daily sea catches.

Nuevo Portil beach

The Nuevo Portil beach lies with Cartaya community. It is situated close to El Portil which is part of Punta Umbria but the distinction is very blur. Nuevo Portil beach has huge sand banks surrounded by junipers and pines. Its location at the foot of a huge rock allows one to enjoy a most panoramic sighting of the Atlantic Ocean.

Nuevo Portil is slowly being urbanized with luxury hotels and holiday apartments to cater to the growing number of tourists coming in every year. Hotels with golf courses and a myriad of water sports are built to the delight of tourists who want lots of activities while on holiday. However, the urbanization is carefully monitored to avoid over development that brings on detrimental effects.

Currently, Nuevo Portil is an ideal holiday choice for those who want a tranquil vacation without too much crowd.
