Hotel Fuerte El Rompido for Solo Travellers
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.
Optional excursions can only be booked in resort and are subject to minimum numbers
British history of Huelva and the Rio Tinto mines
This optional excursion is a must for history buffs. Starting with the Rio Tinto mining and railway museum, you’ll be taken on a journey through time and find out more about the British miners that lived and worked here from 1892 – 1992. It’s a really immersive experience with insight into the landscapes, ancient settlements and the expansion of Huelva as it grew to accommodate the workers in one of the world’s largest mines. After enjoying the surrounding countryside from the Cerro Colorado, you’ll head back to Huelva and hear the true story of the 'The Man Who Never Was'. Visiting the headstone and watching a short documentary film adds depth to one of WWII’s most interesting and successful military deceptions.
