Matalascanas, Almonte

#3 of 6 in Beaches in Province of Huelva
Surrounded by Doñana National Park, Matalascanas is a beach famous for the upside-down tower protruding from the water just off the beach. The tower, called Torre la Higuera, was built for defense by Phillip II in the 16th century. The beach is usually quiet, so it makes a great destination for families and those looking for an escape. While the sand is dark and the water not very clear, it's still a great place for sunbathing and swimming.

  • I have been to use September (23), even on these dates, it is impossible to park. It's not that it's all busy, it's that there's no physical place to do it. If you have a house there, you'll have your parking lot, if you don't forget. I can't imagine that in August, if you're in a hotel and you have parking, not so bad, otherwise you won't park. On these dates, it was all deserted and all closed (13h) on the beach about 30 people, I can not comment on them, I did not step on it, I saw the remains of the tower on the shore of the beach and little else. If you want peace and quiet, this is the place.

  • It is a family hotel, small and very quiet. The room was very clean and comfortable. The pool was great. The bathroom is the only thing that would improve because it is super old. We've been very pleased. I would gladly repeat.
