Islantilla is a very popular destination with Spanish holidaymakers and is one of the few truly unspoilt coastal locations left in Spain. Here you can still experience and enjoy the real Spain. The Spanish holiday season runs between Mid June and Mid September and Islantilla bursts into life. All along the beautiful beach promenade, you will find a street market full of locally produced goods, street entertainment and of course the tented bars with their views over the dunes. The golden sandy beach stretches as far as the eye can see and there are plenty of sunbeds and a variety of sea sports equipment available to hire. At other times of the year, Islantilla is most popular at weekends with the Spanish and most of the seafront bars, restaurants and shops remain open. The weather is fabulous most of the year and if you prefer a quieter holiday then this is the time to visit. Golf is available all year round.
If you enjoy energetic pursuits, there is a Spanish tennis court on site alongside the pool, with changing rooms and toilet facilities.
In addition to the facilities within the complex, you can enjoy water sports at the local beaches, there is a horse riding school close by and fishing boats at the nearby village of El Terron which offer trips out to sea.
The Islantilla Golf resort club house is 20 metres away, with a fantastic 27 hole golf course where you are welcome to enjoy a round of 9, 18 or 27 holes.

HUELVA and ANDALUCIA
Situated between the Tinto and Odiel rivers, the old town of what is now Huelva was founded in prehistoric times. It was Onuba for the Turdetans, Tartessians and Phoenicians, and Guelbah for the Moors. Alfonso X the Wise conquered Huelva in 1297. Huelva is famous for its port, which has a mobile dock for loading ore. In the 18th century, Huelva was hit by a devastating earthquake which destroyed much of its early remains. As it was a famous port city, British mining companies developed an English quarter "Barrio Riena Victoria" during the 19th century.
Places of interest include the churches of San Pedro, La Concepción and San Francisco and the convent of La Merced. In the surrounding countryside you will find reminders of the discovery of America dotted around including the monument to Columbus, donated by the American sculptress, Gertrude Whitney, and the sanctuary of Our Lady of La Cinta, patroness of the city, said to have been visited by Columbus. Today it is large, sprawling and industrialised and claims to be a flamenco capital. However several of the citys splendid old buildings and monuments remain, including the 15th century Church of San Pedro, built on the site of a mosque.
Other places of interest in the city include the Muelle del Tinto docks, built at the beginning of the century to loa d Huelvas mineral exports the Conquero lookout and the provincial museum. Best of all is to discover the story of Christopher Colombus. This can be done at La Rabida Monestery, at the Muelle de las Carabelas, where a modern museum with an hourly audio visual presentation houses replicas of Colombus ships. Explore them at your leisure. At the nearby village of Palos de la Frontera visit the actual embarkation point of the voyage and see the old well from where the fresh water was taken on board.
Andalucia is perhaps best known for its beaches and although these are spectacular, especially along the miles of unspoilt Costa de la Luz, there is much more to the Costas than just beaches. While there is plenty of golf, there exists a traditional unspoilt Spain, worlds apart from the northern-European countries. Andalucia is also well known for its "White Villages" further inland nestling in the hills.
Rainfall here is scarce in the Summer, and evenings are warm. Even in winter there is normally lots of sunshine.
As well as Andalucia´s fascinating cities and dazzling shores, the region is sprinkled with tiny unspoilt villages and whitewashed towns - the famous pueblos blancos - which tourists often overlook, even though they are of easy access, such as Casares, Lepe and Arcos de la Frontera.
Andalucia, then, is a region of startling contrasts and great charm. Yet, this mysterious corner of Europe is easy to reach, with hundreds of charter flights arriving each week.
