Mazagón, 16km southeast of Huelva, is a low-level resort with a choice of excellent beaches and is less developed than the next seaside town, Matalascañas. One of Mazagón's best beaches is situated six kilometres east of the town on the Matalascañas road by the Parador Cristóbal Colón, which is clearly signposted from the centre of the town. Unusually for this stretch of coast, where beaches are generally more open and exposed, this beach is backed by sandstone cliffs. The modern Parador itself is in a great position, perched on top of the cliffs with a swimming pool and attractive gardens overlooking the beach.
Also along this road, which runs alongside the Parque Nacional Coto Donaña, is a good choice of campsites situated close to the beach in pine woods. Further along towards Matalscañas, at Km 38, is a beautiful stretch of relatively quiet beach called the Cuesta de Maneli. To reach it from the car park signposted on the main road, you have to take a 10-minute walk over the dunes through scrub and small pine trees. In the summer there are a few chiringuito beach bars. There is also a nudist section.
