CADIZ​ ​is the last big city before the African continent. Cádiz is known as the Spanish La Habana due to its similarities with the Cuban Capital. It's a magical place with sunsets turning the sky into pink and red which reflects into the sea creating incredible images. The waves and wind from the Atlantic ocean crash against its beaches making this region the perfect place for watersports; also sports such as golf and horse riding might be an excellent option.

Iconic dish

Pescaíto frito (variety of fried fish) and tuna.
