10 top things to do in Cádiz, Spain

A castle on the bay in Cadiz Spain

Beautiful parks of Cadiz Spain

Occidental Cadiz – close to the beach and reasonably priced – bedrooms are clean and modern style with spacious rooms. Excellent customer service and breakfast service.

Parador de Caiz – Beach location but easy access to the city, this modern hotel is comfortable, spacious with fantastic ocean and city views – excellent front desk service.

Bahia Hotel – no frills pension in the heart of the city with plenty of restaurants and shops, rooms are clean, small but adequate. You are paying for a better priced accommodation right in the downtown area.

    So exciting to see this in (virtual) print! Thanks again for featuring us on your incredible site Noel! We were so glad we could share our love of Cadiz to inspire more people to visit this incredible corner of coastal Spain!

      Hi Erin,It looks great, thanks again for sharing this wonderful city – it looks exactly like my visit to Cadiz over 5 years ago.

    I could absolutely fall in love with Cadiz. First of all I love Spain – it’s such a diverse place and always so beautiful. Everything you’ve shown here just adds to the attraction even more.

      For such a small city, Cadiz does pack a lot of punch to a beautiful spot worth visiting in the Costa Del Sol and there’s so many things to do in Cadiz.

    Your photos of Cadiz are lovely. Never been to Spain but would love to visit it soon. El Camino is on my bucket list!

      I think you would enjoy the Costa Del Sol and all the cool things to do in Cadiz.

    First thing I noticed is that the sun is so bright 🙂 . Does it stay that way most of the time? It is an interesting story about the Indian nuns carrying ficus seeds and planting it by chance.

    I suppose the interior of Spain is cool too, but I always see such fantastic posts about coastal Spain! Cadiz looks magical. I would love to take the walk to Castle of San Sebastián – just walking over the levee looks picture worthy. I cant wait to visit Spain!

    Holy smokes, that ficus tree is amazing! I’ll have to say that I didn’t know much about Cádiz before reading this post and it certainly has struck my interest. Beautiful architecture and beaches. I would love to visit.

    Thanks for the great ideas on things to do! Never would have considered this as a destination! As somebody who loves castle architecture, I think the idea of a castle out on the water is so cool! Also, that tree in Cádiz Parques is massive. Since I’m only 5’0, I would look super tiny next to it, haha!

    Looks like a wonderful city to explore. I’d definitely walk out to see the castle and would pay my respects to that grand tree. Another wonderful place to visit in Spain.

    I love the folklore about the ficus trees being brought over to Cádiz by the two nuns. That is beautiful to think the trees knew they wouldn’t be going anywhere and decided to stay for ever. It’s the hippy in me, but I think I saw these giant big trees, I’d be getting in a hug. Now an informal standing lunch isnt something Ive ever heard of, but I love that idea, especially when you visit a market and have snack type food. Would love to visit the fish market, its rare to be able to enjoy seafood from the region. Well thats what Ive found in Australia.

    I’ve never been to Cadiz, so thanks for virtually taking me there. Love the beaches, colors and art!

    I went as far as Benalmádena on Spain’s southern coast before heading up to Seville and northwest to Portugal (skipping the Algarve region). I knew I would miss some things. After seeing your photos, I should have spent another week touring this southwest portion of the Iberian peninsula.

      Yes this part of Spain is more quite, but definitely a lot of cool cities and pretty scenery, worth doing a road trip

    Hi Noel,

    I love these pictures.

    The castle by the water reminds me so much of Cyprus, both in Paphos and Kyrenia. Each spot had a similar Mediterranean feel, ocean-wise, but the medieval type forts really make for an intriguing scene. Game of Thrones like in some regards.

    Cadiz looks gorgeous. Added to my list when I eventually visit Espana, as my wife visited about a decade ago and loved the place.

    Thanks for sharing Noel.

      Cadiz is beautiful, colorful and easy to walk to. Game of thrones was filmed in Seville and Costa Brava up north, east of Barcelona. Cyprus also sounds amazing, I still have to go there.

I look forward to hearing from you and continuing our discussion with any comment you would like to add
