To see El Rompido beach

El Rompido

A few kilometers apart from Cartaya, the small village of El Rompido lives from fishing and beach in summer.

A few, modest restaurants border the ria, waiting for the dwellers that, in summer, multiply by four the total population.

​The beach seems very safe for children.

We’ve been there in winter, so we couldn’t get a clear idea about the beach in summer, however, we could see that the beach stays almost one kilometer from the open sea, sheltered by a long and large bank of sand.

The water is obviously calm (maybe hot),ideal for children, and the long protected natural marina full of small boats.

​It seems to be a calm place, good for families with small children.

​Lighthouse

Just passing by

Inland, but nor far from the beach, there’s a lighthouse built in 1861, that was later replaced by a higher one, close to it.

The curiosity is that both of them are standing there, though only the new one working.

​The old one may be visited, contacting the local library.

​Good for seafood ?

We didn’t eat outside the hotel, but the several restaurants by the seaside were an invitation, and a promise of fresh seafood.

​Maybe next time, if it there will be one!
