There are a wide variety of boat trips available locally. Boats and yachts can also be chartered in Mazagón. There are several marinas close to Nuevo Portil where the landscape and weather conditions make this option a uniquely exciting experience.
Cartaya Karting caters for beginners and experts and only a 10 minute drive from Sunflowers.
The Aquópolis Water Park provides fun for all the family with water slides and wave pools and right next door to Cartaya Karting.
Quad and Bicycle Hire
There are miles of cycle tracks through the pine forests and close to the beach.
Part of “El Paraje Natural Marismas del Odiel” and a short walk from Sunflowers is a 13-hectare freshwater lagoon with three bird hides where you can spot grebes, kingfishers, spoonbills, plovers, grey herons and mallard ducks. In the woods surrounding this lagoon there are woodpeckers, hoopoes, greenfinches, chaffinches and buzzards. Not forgetting the many amphibians and reptiles to be seen, including tortoises, frogs, toads, speckled newts and chameleons.
Doñana National Park
This park is a protected area and a World Heritage Site and consists of marsh, shallow steams, sand dunes and the Guadalquivir River which flows into the Atlantic Ocean.
It has a biodiversity that is unique in Europe and contains a great variety of ecosystems and shelters wildlife including thousands of European and African migratory birds, fallow deer, Spanish red deer, wild boar, European badger, Egyptian mongoose and endangered species such as the Spanish Imperial Eagle and Iberian Lynx.
It is possible to take a half day trip around the park with an official guide or explore the area on foot. It is recommended that you book your visit as entrance to the park is strictly controlled.
The whole area has great fish restaurants but there are also other choices from Italian to Indian and Chinese. Another option would be the local Sports Bar – The Sports Cafe in El Rompido.
However whilst there are local bars and restaurants (as in any traditional Spanish coastal village) if you really want to paint the tiles, nearby Huelva is lively for the night life! It’s far enough away that it doesn’t disturb the local tranquility, yet is only a short ride in a cab. The Spaniards keep the clubs open and buzzing until 8am including a fantastic one in an old castle.
