Hotel Fuerte El Rompido
Saga Hosted Hotels
There’s a softer, more rustic side to Andalusia on the Costa de la Luz, and the pace of life is slower than in some of the more touristy spots. This hotel is a popular choice for wildlife and birdwatchers, who love its location surrounded by a huge nature reserve criss-crossed with walking and cycling trails. And it certainly makes the most of its stunning location, with its rooftop terrace, two outdoor swimming pools (one adults-only), indoor heated pool and spectacular views from every room. The pillow menu and tea and coffee-making facilities mean you’ll soon feel at home in your room, and you can also immerse yourself in local culture at the hotel with botanical tours and Spanish language classes.

El Rompido is a quiet Spanish fishing town set at the mouth of the Piedras River. There’s a string of cafes and restaurants lining the waterfront, and a small town square complete with traditional whitewashed church. Back at the hotel, guests can follow well signposted walks onto the protected nature reserve, where 14km of trails reveal beautiful marshlands, pine forests and shifting sand dunes.

Footsteps of Columbus
Tour some of the places associated with Christopher Columbus, who recruited local sailors for his voyages in the 15th century. On his departure and return, he prayed to the patron saint of Huelva at the Santuario de Nuestra Señora de la Cinta. The abbot of the tranquil 14th-century Franciscan monastery at La Rábida played a big part in securing funds for the voyages to the New World from the monarchs Ferdinand and Isabella, while the Harbour of the Caravels has full-size replicas of the three caravels that made the epic voyage to the New World. The caravels are closed during January.
