Apart from its impressive and spectacular lighthouse, another main reason why many tourists visit Chipiona is to discover its magnificent coast dotted with dunes, marshes (a haven for wildlife) and of course its beautiful beaches.

It hosts a beautiful marina called Marina Chipiona which can accommodate up to 335 yachts having a maximum length of 30m. The marina is also close to the Marina Rota and Puerto America in Cadiz.
During your yacht charter trip in the area, you can also sail towards one of the 4 corals of Longuera, Trapillo, Cabito and Nuevo which lie opposite to the town.
A good sailing trip in Chiopiona will enable you to see some of the most important buildings in the area and to start your exploration from Marina Chipiona along the coast until you reach the Sanctuary de Nuestra Senora de Regla and continue until the famous 13th century castle, the lighthouse and also the Merced Tower.
