Puerto Santa Maria

Puerto de Santa Maria is a traditional family resort for the locals. The beach is pleasant, with a pleasant, very reasonable bar. The town is known for its sherry bodegas, warehouses where they store sherry (from Jerez). There are wonderful seafood restaurants in the main square near the water. 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. 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. The climate is one of El PuertoΆΆs best features with endless days of sunshine. Even during the winter months, temperatures rarely fall below 20 degrees. With more than three thousand 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.
