Beaches of Huelva: Matalascañas and Mazagón
Seville is wonderful but has no beach, only some brave people dare to swim in the waters of the Guadalquivir River in summer. We propose a better option: visit a beach nearby, one hour by bus.
The proximity and good road connections to Huelva allow you to enjoy wide beaches of fine sand and pass through, you can visit the city. We recommend avoiding weekends in summer, as traffic jams are considerable and the journey can be extended up to 3 hours.
