HUELVA PROVINCE

Flecha del Rompido ££

Possibly the most spectacular beach on Huelva's Costa de la Luz, this five-mile-long sand bar along the mouth of the Río Piedras can be reached only by ferry, which keeps the crowds away, even in midsummer. The waters on the inland side remain calm, while the south side faces the open sea. Part of the Río Piedras wetlands reserve, it's a place of great ornithological and botanical interest. From spring to autumn, hourly Flechamar (flechamar com) boats go to the Flecha from the port at the western end of El Rompido.

Parque Nacional de Doñana £

(donanareservas.com)

The World Heritage-protected Parque Nacional de Doñana is a place of haunting natural beauty and exotic horizons, where flocks of lamingos tinge the evening skies pink above one of Europe's most extensive wetlands (the delta of the Guadalquivir), huge herds of deer and boar lit through coto (woodlands), and the elusive Iberian lynx battles for survival.

CÁDIZ PROVINCE

Catedral de Cádiz £

Cádiz' beautiful yellow-domed cathedral is an impressively proportioned Baooque-Neoclassi-cal construction, best appreciated from the seafront Campo del Sur in the evening sun. Though commissioned in 1716, the project wasn't finished until 1838, by which time Neoclassical elements (the dome, towers and main façade) had diluted architect Vicente Acero's original Baroque plan. With the same ticket you can check out religious treasures at the Museo Catedralicio, just east.
