Conil de la Frontera
Conil de la Frontera - a picturesque seaside town with 19,000 inhabitants - is located on the Costa de la Luz (Atlantic coast) in the province of Cadiz, close to the estuary of the river Salado, south of cape Roche.
Conil is very popular with tourists in summer, but nonetheless it is still a typical Andalusian town with narrow cobbled streets, open-air markets, pavement cafes and tapas bars. Conil hotels are ideal for a relaxing break, but the are usually overbooked in summer, so try to make your reservation some months before traveling. Besides, visitors can find very good fish restaurants where local specialties are offered, such as atún encebollado (tuna cooked in onion) and chocos con patatas (cuttlefish with potatoes). There is even a particular fair in June when the tuna is celebrated, affording the opportunity for tourists to taste delicious tuna dishes at stunning prices.
The town has about 14 km of fine, golden beaches with transparent and crystal waters. Visitors can find various sorts of water sports as well as beach restaurants, which turn into discotheques on hot summer nights. Travelling south to Cabo de Trafalgar, one can view the place where the famous sea battle of Trafalgar was fought.
