The Costa de la Luz region
El Puerto has a famous bullring which dates back to 1880 with space for 15,000 spectators. Bullfighting is still enjoyed during the Feria season during the month of August, and during the Feria de la Primavera (Spring Fair) in early May. This Feria is dedicated to sherry wine and 180,000 half bottles are drunk in 4 days.
There are several bodegas (wineries) in the town centre, all of which can be visited by the public. The most famous bodegas in El Puerto are Osborne and Terry both of which export sherry and brandy worldwide. In the cellars of El Puerto, the dry, pale sherry known as Fino is produced using the traditional method called solera. This method produces Fino, the sweet Muscatel, Amontillado and the older Oloroso.
The climate is one of El Puerto’s best features with endless days of sunshine. Even during the winter months, temperatures rarely fall below 20 degrees. With more than 3000 hours of sunshine, fine sandy beaches and blue seas, El Puerto de Santa Maria on the Costa de la Luz (the Coast of Light) is a popular holiday location. For nature lovers, El Puerto de Santa Maria is situated in the middle of the Parque natural Bahia de Cádiz. There are two square kilometres of pine forest which form one part of the three ecosystems in the area. An endangered species of chameleon along with other reptiles and birds of immense variety can be found in the forest.
Andalusia’s wildlife is the most varied in Europe, with fauna and flora in protected areas. The area boasts of two Natural parks, the Sierra de Grazalema and El Coto Donaña, both within driving distance and well worth a visit.
El Puerto is very well connected by train (the train station is 3 mins walk away from the apartments) and highway to Jerez (15 mins), Cadiz (30 mins) and Seville (60 mins). These two cities are very beautiful and worth visiting too.

The El Puerto de Santa Maria area
Aside from the beaches and the sunshine, there are ample opportunities and facilities for leisure activities like fine dining, golf, kitesurfing, boating, and other water sports. El Puerto is an excellent place to sample local tapas and seafood, for which it is famous. Food is an important reason why El Puerto de Santa Maria attracts hundreds of tourists.
The Bay of Cádiz is famous for its fresh seafood and that, teamed with the abundance of fresh fruit and vegetables leads to excellent restaurant menus. Most tourists head for the Rivera del Marisco where you can by seafood in paper cones to take away or eat at the tables. There are a wide variety of eateries all located with walking distance in the town centre.
El Puerto has escaped the mass tourism of the Costa del Sol and remains unspoilt, natural and very picturesque. During the summer months the town bursts with life. Most of the town is on the north bank of the Rio Guadelete, where bars and restaurants line the palm-covered streets. Entertainment is lively in the summer in the town centre and in Vistahermosa everything starts very late and goes on well into the early hours, hence the famous Spanish siesta.
