This beach is beautiful everywhere you look at it. It was formerly a natural harbor where Phoenicians, Carthaginians and Romans anchored their boats.
A tongue of sand of just 450 m, family-friendly and quiet, featuring some of the old town wonders as a backdrop. It is the smallest of all the beaches in the area, but one of the most attractive and emblematic of the city of Cadiz.
Its main attraction is that it is housed in the old town in front of Castillo Santa Catalina and San Sebastian. Sitting in the sand and looking towards the right, you’ll spot the great Castillo de Santa Catalina in a star shape over the sea. Looking to the left, you’ll spot the long jetty which leads directly to the Castillo de San Sebastian. And in the center of the beach, there is the charming seaside resortoverlooking the beach; a real treat for the senses.
It looks just like a movie beach, and it is here where famous movies such as Alatriste or one of the James Bond films “Die Another Day” with Hally Berry and Pierce Brocenan was shot. Don’t hesitate to enjoy the beach at sunset. La Caleta offers one of the best sunsets in Andalucía. Whether strolling or sitting on one of the terraces, you will enjoy the red sky illuminating the sea, dotted by small traditional boats in a unique setting.
